BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Sources have confirmed to News 4’s Nalina Shapiro that two crime reports have been filed against Sabres’ left winger Evander Kane by two women.
The crime reports relate to an alleged incident following Kane’s appearance at a Buffalo bar called Bottom’s Up on Chippewa Street on Thursday night.
A group, including Kane, had been escorted from the bar Thursday night, according to the general manager, David Robida of Bottom’s Up. Robida said there was an altercation inside the bar with Kane’s friend and another individual. Robida claims Kane wasn’t involved in that altercation, despite video showing him inside the bar.
It’s not yet clear what crimes Kane is accused of committing.
“Buffalo Police are in the preliminary stages of investigating the allegations,” police spokesperson Mike DeGeorge said Friday.
Kane had been under investigation earlier in 2016 following a report to police in December of 2015 which alleged Kane may have committed a sexual offense at Buffalo’s HARBORCenter Marriott. No charges were ever filed by the Erie County District Attorney’s Office.
The report surfaced on the first night of the NHL Draft. The Sabres, which pick eighth in the first round, declined to comment.
BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB)- “Buffalo selects Alex Nylander.” With just four words Sabres’ General Manager Tim Murray sent the crowd at First Niagara Center into cheers. Adding Alex with with the 8th overall pick gives the Sabres another talented young forward.
“I had a feeling it would be Buffalo,” Alex said at a press conference minutes after the selection. “Best moment of my life.” Nylander is the brother of Toronto prospect William Nylander, adding a new chapter to the Leafs-Sabres rivalry. Their father is former NHL Michael Nylander. The Sabres own 11 picks in this years draft.
Weather will be picture-perfect this weekend, but expect little or no relief for parched lawns and gardens over the next several days. High pressure will keep our skies generally clear, with generous sunshine through Sunday, allowing increasing heat and humidity over the weekend. The record high temperatures of 96 and 93, Saturday and Sunday respectively, seem to be out of reach, but it will be quite warm.
An east to northeast breeze during the afternoons will keep the Lake Ontario shore a bit cooler. There may a little more high clouds mixing in Sunday afternoon, especially in the S.Tier, ahead of our next cold front. Temperatures will still be well above normal by the finish of the weekend, approaching 90º Sunday.
The next chance for rain comes with a cold front later Sunday night. As it crosses, we will see a round of showers and thunderstorms, that will wind down fairly early Monday, with some partial sun returning by the afternoon. This brings temperatures down to more comfortable levels next week. While the rain will be beneficial, much more will be needed to make up our deficit.
By the end of next week the weather pattern shifts again, bringing warmer and drier weather back to WNY just in time for the weekend.

AMHERST, N.Y. (WIVB) — The Best Buy in Amherst could be part of a series of Mission Impossible-type thefts that date back to 2013.
In each case, tens of thousands of dollars in electronics were stolen, including the most recent locally where $90,000 in iPads, boxes of them, were ripped off overnight Thursday.
Amherst Police said someone broke into the Best Buy on Niagara Falls Boulevard after it closed Thursday.
Police said someone cut through nearly five inches of rubber, insulation and corrugated metal on the building’s roof.
Once inside, they stole 400 iPads.
“They definitely spent a lot of time in that store,” said Amherst Detective Lt. Richard Walter.
Walter said police are still investigating whether the thieves left the store through a different means or back through the roof.
The day before the incident in Amherst, a Best Buy in Erie, Pa., was burglarized in the same manner.
“It was the same MO,” Walter said.
Pennsylvania State Police are investigating.
The same Best Buy in Amherst was broke into the same way in 2013. In that case, thieves cut through the roof and made off with 60 Mac iBooks, each worth more than $1,000.
Amherst police say they’re comparing surveillance video and pictures with Pennsylvania State Police, which is investigating the case in Erie.
