Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane won’t face disciplinary action from the NHL resulting from a police investigation last summer in New York.

A woman had alleged last summer that she was sexually assaulted by Kane. Authorities in New york decided not to press charges after concluding an investigation.

Here is the statement released by the NHL Wednesday:

“The National Hockey League announced today that it has completed its independent review of the Patrick Kane matter, the final stage of which included an in-person meeting between Kane and Commissioner Gary Bettman in New York on Monday, March 7. Based on its review, including the determination made by the Erie County District Attorney not to pursue charges, the NHL has concluded that the allegations made against Kane were unfounded. The League considers the matter closed and will have no further comment.”
