Patrick Kane Drunk Photos: Patrick Sharp Not Worried About Kane

The Chicago Blackhawks got an unwanted surprise in early May when images surfaced of RW Patrick Kane imbibing and partying at a University of Wisconsin get-together. Well, according to C Patrick Sharp, there's no need for concern:

"[Kane] lives a pretty famous lifestyle. Everyone can recognize him wherever he goes and he’s in the public eye quite a bit," Sharp said. "I think it’s more of a personal matter, to be honest with you as far as everything that he is dealing with. It’s better that he answers those questions. He’s my friend, he’s my teammate, I love the guy and I’m going to be behind him no matter what... He’s a kid with a good head on his shoulders and I’m not worried about him at all."

Kane played in all 82 games for the Blackhawks in the 2011-12 NHL season. He managed to collect 66 points despite a career-low Shot Percentage (9.1%). The 23-year-old also failed to score a goal in his six playoff game appearances, but did score 4 assists.
