Evander Kane’s ex-lover contributed to Ryan Hartman’s NHL fine… for fighting with Kane
Sometimes, the best part of sport is the smallness we get to witness on a public scale.
After debunking Evander Kane in an ice scuffle on Tuesday night, Minnesota Wild forward Ryan Hartman was fined $4,250 by the NHL for unsportsmanlike conduct after Kane cross-checked Kirill Kaprizov. At one point, Kane was fighting five opposing players as the referees were in the middle of the skirmish.
Kane has had his fair share of off-ice troubles throughout his NHL career. Earlier this season, the Oilers’ left wing was given a 21-match ban by the NHL for falsifying COVID vaccination cards and violating procedures. He was investigated for gambling in his own league and pitching game, and sued by a Vegas casino for owing a debt of half a million dollars. In 2016, five different people accused him of assault, and just last year, when he and his ex-wife were preparing for a divorce, they both filed restraining orders against each other citing abuse. family use.

Anna posted an Instagram story today with a screenshot of the Venmo payment to Hartman, sending him $200 to help pay the fine for unsportsmanlike conduct.
Hartman said the fine was “well deserved,” adding, “”It shows that we have five men in there, they don’t have one in there to help him. I don’t think any of them will defend him. Kane has been at Edmonton since late January after his contract was terminated by the San Jose Sharks.
