Kane apologizes for 'pain' he caused

Patrick Kane opened Team USA's Olympic orientation camp with a brief statement today about his recent arrest. He did not take questions and refused to discuss the alleged attack on a cab driver because the legal case is still pending.

"I've been very lucky to achieve every kid's dream of playing in the National Hockey League, let alone for a great organization like the Chicago Blackhawks," Kane said in Woodridge, Ill. "Now I also have a chance to play for my country, a dream come true for myself and also my family.

"I know everyone wants to talk about what happened in Buffalo. As you know the legal proceedings are pending and I cannot discuss the details at this time. Because I put myself ... in the wrong position at the wrong time I've caused a lot of pain for my family, my hometown of Buffalo, the city of Chicago, the Chicago Blackhawks and obviously the great fans we have here in Chicago. And for that part I sincerely apologize. Now it's time for me to move forward. I'm excited to get back to the ice and represent the Chicago Blackhawks and the United States Olympic hockey team."
