Patrick Kane of the Chicago Blackhawks is the target of a rape investigation by police in Hamburg, New York, for an incident that occurred last weekend, two law enforcement sources told The Buffalo News.

The newspaper cited two anonymous sources. It was unclear whether Kane, a 26-year-old wing, had been interviewed by law enforcement as part of the probe, the paper said.

The Buffalo News also reported it learned from a law enforcement official that at least one other local police agency has been asked to assist with the investigation, and the other police agency was told the investigation involves an allegation against Kane.

The agency was told that Roseanne Johnson, chief of the Erie County District Attorney’s Special Victims Bureau, is the prosecutor assigned to the case. Hamburg police Chief Gregory Wickett declined to confirm or deny the investigation.

Paul Cambria, a lawyer who represented Kane in a previous legal matter, said Wednesday no arrests were made.

The Blackhawks in a statement Thursday acknowledged the investigation but didn’t provide details.

“We are aware of the matter and are in the process of gathering information. It would be inappropriate to comment further at this time,” the statement read.

Messages left for Kane’s agent weren’t returned.

A reporter was turned away from Kane’s gated home in New York on Thursday morning. A woman who spoke through the intercom system declined to say if Kane was there.

Neighbors said three unmarked police cars descended upon Kane’s lakefront property Sunday night and several plainclothes officers entered his home using flashlights.

At least one officer wore gloves and could be seen taking pictures in the front, said one witness, who asked not to be named.

Kane has been praised for his off-ice maturity following a turbulent introduction to stardom.

Kane pleaded guilty to the noncriminal violation of disorderly conduct in August 2009 after he was arrested in connection with a dispute with a Buffalo cabdriver.

Though criminal charges against him were dropped, a judge ordered him to send an apology to the driver, who accused Kane and his cousin of assault and stealing a fare. Kane also had to pay $125 in court costs and was ordered to stay out of trouble for a year under a “conditional” discharge.

Kane again found the spotlight in May 2012 when pictures surfaced of him celebrating Cinco de Mayo in Madison, Wisconsin. A Madison Police Department representative said then that Kane was involved in an altercation outside a bar but left when an officer told him to go. He wasn’t arrested.

After the Blackhawks won their third Stanley Cup in six seasons in June, Kane made a playful reference to his past behavior when he addressed fans at the championship rally.

“I know you said I’ve been growing up, but watch out for me the next week,” Kane said.

DEVILS: The team has a new development/skills coach in Pertti Hasanen, who has more than 35 years of experience coaching and developing players.

COYOTES: Arizona signed defenseman Brandon Gormley to a one-year, two-way contract.

Gormley, 23, had two goals and two assists in 27 games for the Coyotes last season. He also had three goals and seven assists in 23 games for the Portland Pirates.
