The San Jose Sharks are investigating forward Evander Kane for allegedly using a fake COVID-19 vaccination card, The Hill reports via Front Office Sports. Penalties directly related to the use of fake vaccine cards are not specifically defined in season guidelines but the league said “lack of compliance with, the COVID-19 Protocol will result in significant Club and individual sanctions, including potential forfeiture of games, fines and reimbursements of expenses, loss of draft choices, and/or ineligibility for participation in training activities.” Yet buying, using or selling fake vaccine cards is illegal in the U.S. and violators risk up to five years in prison. The Sharks announced on Twitter in September that Kane, who is in his third year with the team, would not be participating in training camp.
