NEWARK, N.J. — Now that Patrick Kane will not face sex assault charges, the Chicago Blackhawks star says he wants to focus on hockey — and not his behavior off the ice.

“Once again, I think there’s probably a date and time to address those things, but as far as right now, like I’ve said, I released my statement through the Blackhawks, and that’s all I’m really going to say on the matter,” he said.

Kane spoke to reporters Friday after a skate in New jersey, where the team will play the Devils Friday night.

He reiterated he’s already released a statement in which he said he did not do anything wrong.

He also said he appreciated the support from the team and from fans.

A woman accused Kane of rape in his Buffalo-area home over the summer.
