The lawyer representing the woman who has made an allegation of being sexually assaulted by Chicago Blackhawks star forward Patrick Kane has scheduled a news conference for Wednesday afternoon.

Thomas Eoannou confirmed in a text to The Associated Press on Tuesday that he will address reporters at his law office in downtown Buffalo. Eoannou did not provide any further details.

It will be the first time he has spoken publicly about the case since Hamburg Police launched an investigation against Kane in early August.

Kane is accused of sexually assaulting a woman in her 20s at his home in suburban Buffalo on Aug. 2.

Kane has not been charged.

Upon reporting to training camp last week, Kane said he had done nothing wrong and expects to be absolved.
