Daniel Kaplan and Kevin Kurz of The Athletic: Evander Kane heads towards a possible split from the San Jose Sharks. Rumors suggest it may be the San Jose Sharks that void his contract. The key in this is may. An extension was granted to June 7th for San Jose and Evander Kane.
The murky situation becomes muddier. San Jose is at the bottom of the league standings-wise. Voiding the contract makes sense from that standpoint. Then, there is the counterpoint. Kane plays well enough for San Jose. Finally, there is the off-ice issue with filing a Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
