From the Buffalo News:

Buffalo Sabres star Evander Kane has been cleared after an investigation into a sexual encounter in December.

No accusation was ever made against Kane, but an investigation started when a young woman who spent the night with him sought medical treatment at Erie County Medical Center and said she could not remember what happened.

The Erie County District Attorney’s Office and the Buffalo Police sex offense squad determined nothing illegal occurred.

The newspaper’s story has a few more details, as well as quotes from acting district attorney Michael J. Flaherty, Jr., who could not say too much as “these matters need to be handled with the utmost sensitivity and confidentiality.”

Kane insisted when the investigation became public that he’d “done nothing wrong.”
