Evander Kane has faced his fair share of controversy throughout his NHL career, but the latest allegations against him have truly shocked the hockey community.

A recent Instagram story has cast a dark shadow over Evander Kane. In this Instagram story, Christina Marleau, the wife of NHL veteran Patrick Marleau, penned a letter detailing a deeply troubling series of events involving Kane.
According to Marleau, Kane and a younger teammate were at the Marleau household for babysitting when they allegedly consumed a substance.
What followed was a troubling disappearance that left the baby unattended. She expressed her concerns, stating, "My husband had heard that during the Covid pause on the season, father [Kane] had invited a teammate and his girlfriend over to their home. The information we had heard was that both father and the teammate had taken some sort of substance, which resulted in the teammate running out of the house and missing for multiple hours throughout the night."
These allegations have understandably outraged fans and put Kane in a deeply uncomfortable situation. Speculation is rife as to the identity of the unnamed young player involved in this incident.
Many have been left wondering about the identity of the young player. Marleau's statement hinted at one particular player, Ryan Merkley.
She revealed,
"We also became aware of a young Sharks player, Ryan Merkley, was babysitting Kensington during at least one night in December of 2021. Although we have heard from other hockey families that this was not just a one-time event. I believe Mr. Merkley is 20 years old."

While nothing is confirmed, the pieces seem to fit, potentially pointing to Merkley as the young player involved. It's essential to remember that both Kane and Merkley have moved on from the Sharks for different reasons.
Kane's contract was terminated due to COVID-19 rule violations, and Merkley was traded to the Colorado Avalanche before signing with the KHL.
As time passes, we can only hope for more clarity and resolution on this deeply troubling matter.
