Wait, did Patrick Kane say he was guilty?

SHARE Wait, did Patrick Kane say he was guilty?

Patrick Kane has enough problems in his life without the Word Police getting on his case, but I can’t help myself.

Here’s what the Blackhawks star said at news conference Thursday:

“I am confident that once all the facts are brought to light, I will be absolved of having done nothing wrong.”

Now, I don’t know who wrote that for him, but as it reads, Kane is confident he’ll be absolved of being not guilty. Or, more clearly, he’s confident he’ll be found guilty.

What the statement writer meant to say was, “I am confident that once all the facts are brought to light, I will be absolved of all wrongdoing.”

There, I feel better. So should Kane’s legal team, though it might not like my hourly rate.
