The Chicago Blackhawks aren't exactly thrilled with the way star forward Patrick Kane started his summer.
Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman said Tuesday that he was aware of Kane's off-season antics -- he apparently went on a bender in Madison, Wisc., during Cinco de Mayo celebrations -- and has talked to him about it.
"Obviously, we are aware of that situation," Bowman said. "We followed it closely. It was one of those things where we've discussed it with Patrick. We've handled that internally.
"We're obviously disappointed with how it played it out, and Patrick is aware of that fact. But at this point, it's a private matter. I think, out of respect for Patrick, we're not going to comment further. We're going to look forward and try to focus on things in improving our team leading into the summer."
Kane's drunken spree in Madison led to a number of embarrassing photos appearing online. One of them showed Kane apparently passed out at a bar.
