Yahoo! Sports reports that Evander Kane, professional ice hockey left winger for the San Jose Sharks, says his bankruptcy coming to light brought him relief.

Kane spoke to reporters about how dealing with the bankruptcy has been very stressful, but about how it was a relief to not try and hide it anymore. He claims it was a big relief for him.

From The Article:

“For years, I was dealing with all these things,” Kane said. “It’s having that constant stress. Everybody has stress. But once I made that decision (to file for bankruptcy), people think it is the start of something. Really, it’s the end of this chapter of my life. I think that is where the big misconception is about this.”
