A lawyer has been hired to represent Chicago Blackhawks star Patrick Kane, who is under police investigation over something that may have happened at his home last weekend.

Lawyer Paul Cambria didn't provide any further information in a text message to The Associated Press on Saturday. Cambria represented Kane in 2009, when he faced charges for assaulting a Buffalo cab driver.

In the meantime, Blackhawks spokesman Brandon Faber says Kane will spend Saturday with the Stanley Cup privately with his family in Buffalo.

The developments come a day after Hamburg police confirmed Kane is under investigation for an "incident that allegedly occurred" at the player's offseason home in suburban Buffalo. Hamburg Police Chief Gregory Wickett did not discuss the nature of the investigation. He said police are gathering information and awaiting forensic tests.
