BUFFALO, N.Y. -- A new report says Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane is unlikely to face criminal charges after a nearly three-month investigation into claims he had sexually assaulted a woman in New York.

The Buffalo News reports that three of its sources said doubts have arisen into the woman's claims and that a criminal prosecution is unlikely.

The district attorney has declined to comment, the report said.

The attorney for Kane also declined to comment.

A woman has accused Kane of raping her in his home in New York State in the early hours of Aug. 2.

The accuser says she met Kane at a bar.

Kane was never arrested.
