Patrick Kane Drunk Photos: Team Suggests Counseling For Kane, According To Report

Weeks after numerous photos were released showing Chicago Blackhawks star Patrick Kane exhibiting what could be considered reckless behavior at a block party near the University of Wisconsin, the team finally responded this week with a statement expressing disappointment in the player's actions.

The team doesn't appear to be done dealing with the entire situation, though, as Adam Jahns of the Chicago Tribune reports that some in the organization have already suggested finding counseling for the 23-year-old. Here's what one source said of Kane's actions:

He’s obviously got some issues. How many more times can these things happen? It’s a much bigger thing than some photographs in a 48-hour window.

One of the biggest stars in Chicago, Kane has been in the news numerous times in the past for off-field behavior, including a 2009 arrest for an incident with a Buffalo cabdriver. A leader of the 2010 team that won the Stanley Cup Finals, he's one of the most talented players on the team but there's clearly mounting frustration at his inability to stay out of the headlines.
