BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - The NHL says it is "following developments" of a police investigation involving Chicago Blackhawks star Patrick Kane.

The Blackhawks said they are in the process of gathering information and declined further comment. The Buffalo News first reported the investigation Thursday.

Neighbors of Kane, who lives in Hamburg, New York, in the offseason, told the Chicago Tribune that police arrived at his lakefront property Sunday night and that several plainclothes officers entered his house using flashlights. At least one wore gloves and was seen taking pictures out front.

Hamburg Police Chief Gregory Wickett would not describe the nature of the investigation.

Wickett says police will provide the information if an arrest is made.

The investigation comes after Chicago's third Stanley Cup in six seasons. Kane has been lauded in recent years for his growth after several off-ice incidents earlier in his career.
