According to multiple sources, Patrick Kane sat down with investigators and his lawyer, Paul Cambria, this week.

Sources told the Buffalo News that Kane met with an investigator from the Erie County District Attorney's Office, an investigator with the DA's Office and a detective from Hamburg (N.Y.) Police. Kane's lawyer has said that some of the statements made against his client have been "completely inaccurate," but they haven't spoken publicly since then.

Apparently the trade that sent Marian Hossa to the Atlanta Thrashers and Dany Heatley to the Ottawa Senators happened 10 years ago today.

It's remarkable how much has changed for the two wingers since then. Heatley enjoyed a few high-end seasons with Ottawa before his game fell apart, and he now is out of the NHL. Hossa is currently a three-time Stanley Cup champion with huge respect around the league.

Agitating forward Daniel Carcillo admits that he isn't sure if he'll play in the NHL again as a 30-year-old UFA.

"If I told you that I've already made a decision 100 percent to not play I'd be lying," Carcillo said to the Chicago Tribune. "But every year, especially the last couple, I've definitely thought about it. And then when you have a son it kind of changes things because being away that long with that travel schedule is just not conducive to being the father I want to be. I want to be here and I want to see things."

Chicago has signed Nolan Valleau to a two-year contract.

He contributed two goals and 19 points in 39 games with Bowling Green State University during his freshman campaign in 2014-15. The undrafted defenseman was named to the WCHA All-Rookie team and the Blackhawks clearly saw enough to sign the 22-year-old to a pro contract.

Updating an earlier item, Phillip Danault is projected to be sidelined for about four months.

He had surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left hip on Monday morning, so he'll start 2015-16 recovering from the procedure.

Marcus Kruger would prefer to already have a new contract done, but he isn't worried about it yet.

"Right now I just try to focus on getting in the best shape I can be in a month from now. That's all I can do," said the restricted free agent. "Then, I think everything else will sort out. I love playing hockey. I know I'm going to do that. We will see what happens, but I'm not too worried about it." His preference is to receive a long-term deal, but he is willing to take a shorter contract because of Chicago's lack of cap space.

Phillip Danault underwent hip surgery on Monday morning.

He is expected to miss at least three months, but Chicago hasn't announced the procedure yet. Danault notched 13 goals and 25 assists in 70 games with AHL Rockford last season and he made two appearances in the NHL with the Blackhawks. He was the 26th overall pick in the 2011 draft, but probably would've started the 2015-16 campaign in the minors.

Mac Carruth has agreed to a one-year AHL contract with the Rockford IceHogs

He spent most of the previous season in the ECHL with the Indy Fuel, where he posted a 17-13-7 record to go with a 2.55 goals-against average and a .914 save percentage. Carruth also had an impressive 1.69 GAA and a .925 save percentage in three appearances for Rockford.

Chicago Blackhawks owner Rocky Wirtz is staying tight-lipped on the investigation involving Patrick Kane.

"It wouldn't be appropriate," Wirtz said. "At this point we're hopeful and that's about it. I'm not going to say anything more. I don't think it would be right." It's understandable to stay mum on the topic, while the police wait on forensic tests and continue their investigation into Kane's alleged sexual assault incident. Wirtz refused to answer questions about a possible suspension, which could be a possibility depending on what transpires.

Patrick Kane has hired a lawyer, as authorities continue to investigate a situation that arose at his off-season home last weekend.

In a text message to the Associated Press, Paul Cambria confirmed that he had been hired by Kane. Cambria and Kane are no strangers to each other. Cambria represented Kane back in 2009 when he pleaded guilty to a noncriminal charge of disorderly conduct after he was accused of assaulting a cab driver in Buffalo. Despite the investigation, the Hawks forward is still scheduled to have his day with the Stanley Cup on Saturday.
