Chicago Blackhaws star Patrick Kane, an accused sexual assaultist, has apologized -- not to his (alleged) victim, because "he has too much respect for the legal process", but to his family, teammates, "this incredible organization and, of course, our fans."

He adds, "I am confident once all the facts are brought to light I will be absolved of having done nothing wrong."
