Patrick Kane had a fun little getaway at the campus of University of Wisconsin recently, but the Chicago Blackhawks star received plenty of bad publicity when pictures of his excursion went viral on the Internet. It's not the first time Kane has been photographed drinking and very obviously inebriated.
In what's turning into an annual occurrence, the Blackhawks stated they're "disappointed" in Kane's behavior and that the team has been "following the situation closely."
Here's the rest of general manager Stan Bowman's statement:
"We discussed it with Patrick. We've handled that internally. We're obviously disappointed with how it played out and Patrick is aware of that fact. At this point, it's a private matter. Out of respect for Patrick, we're not going to comment further. We're going to look forward."
