BUFFALO, N.Y. – A judge will dismiss the charges against Buffalo Sabres forward Evander Kane stemming from scuffles with women in a bar if he stays out of future trouble.

The arrangement is contingent on the 25-year-old player avoiding legal issues for the next six months. Kane didn’t speak during or after his brief appearance in a Buffalo court. Kane’s lawyer says Monday’s action doesn’t include an admission of guilt, and Kane still denies the allegations.

Kane was arrested in July, a month after allegedly grabbing three women by the hair and neck in separate encounters on the same night in a downtown Buffalo bar. Kane was removed from the club by bouncers.

He was charged with misdemeanour disorderly conduct, trespass and noncriminal harassment.
