Chicago Blackhawks right wing Patrick Kane reported to training camp Thursday and spoke publicly for the first time since being placed under investigation for an incident at his offseason home last month.

Flanked by Blackhawks president John McDonough, general manager Stan Bowman and coach Joel Quenneville at a podium, Kane read a prepared statement:

I cannot apologize enough for the distraction this has caused my family, my teammates, this incredible organization, and of course, our fans. While I have too much respect for the legal process to comment on an ongoing matter, I am confident, that once all the facts are brought to light, I will be absolved of having done anything wrong."

BROSSARD, Quebec -- P.K. Subban made his boss proud.

McDavid puts on show in home debut with Oilers

EDMONTON -- Connor McDavid put on a show Wednesday for the 14,434 fans who turned out to see his first game at Rexall Place.

McDavid assisted on three goals to lead the Edmonton Oilers rookies to a 6-3 victory against the two-time Canadian national champion University of Alberta Golden Bears in their annual exhibition game.

The first 24 games in the series were played at the 2,700-seat Clare Drake Arena on the Golden Bears' campus. But with McDavid, the first player taken in the 2015 NHL Draft, as the main attraction, the game was moved to the longtime home of the Oilers.

McDavid, who sat out the final two of Edmonton's three games at the Young Stars Classic in Penticton, British Columbia, last weekend, said he got a lift from the home crowd. It was McDavid's first game at Rexall Place, though he participated in a rookie scrimmage during the summer that also drew a large crowd.

"Anytime there is that many fans and they're that into the game, and they're that loud, it's pretty special to play in front of," McDavid said. "I thought I was a little bit better, I felt better in terms of legs and all that."

One week after Tyler Johnson said he was not quite 100 percent, the Tampa Bay Lightning forward said on the eve of training camp that his injured right wrist is much better.

"Three weeks ago, I couldn't even shoot, and now I can do everything," Johnson told the Tampa Bay Times on Wednesday. "It's one of those things where you've just got to get strength back, but I'll be ready."

Johnson wore a brace on the wrist, which was fractured in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Chicago Blackhawks in June. The injury did not require surgery, and he went without the brace in mid-August.

"They look really good in person," forward Anders Lee said. "We had a chance to put them on today. It's up and live and we're really looking forward to wearing them. Black helmets, black pants, it'll be really clean."

Yeah, it was a pretty special moment for me. Today was my Dad's [55th] birthday. I have a lot of family in town, so it was a special moment for me to score my first one today. A win definitely would have capped it off, but you can't have everything.
