The National Hockey League is keeping a close eye on the Patrick Kane investigation in Hamburg, New York, but waiting for more information before reaching any kind of decision.

NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly told the Chicago Sun-Times in an email on Monday that the league is “following developments” in the police investigation, which reportedly involves Kane and a woman at the 26-year-old’s home last weekend.

“You can assume we are doing everything we need to be doing from the league’s perspective,” said Daly.

According to Sun-Times reporter Mark Lazerus, the league’s security personnel has relationships with local law enforcement in all NHL cities and there is no plan to assign an independent investigator.
