"Its a matter that has been taken of," Jets general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff said Thursday, as the team opened its 2013 prospects camp. "Everybody has a personal life." Kane suggested it was a misunderstanding. "Its just something that I guess I thought I had taken care of before," he said of fines for using an electronic device and driving without a valid license. "It came a little bit by surprise but its rectified and taken care of now." The province won a default judgment last week for $650 to cover the cost of the fines and penalties, the Winnipeg Free Press reported Thursday. Kane will earn a base salary of $4.5 million in 2013-14. The fines were paid when the team learned of them last week. "Its something that has been dealt with and certainly were ready to move forward," said Cheveldayoff.dddddddddddd. He didnt make a big deal of it but suggested it was Kanes responsibility to handle such things. "As citizens of the community we all have a responsibility to make sure that we take care of the different things." Kane said he doesnt remember what he was doing when he was stopped for using an electronic device while driving. "Obviously its very dangerous and I dont recommend it to anybody," he said. This isnt the first time Kane has been the subject of headlines for his off-ice activities. A photo on twitter of him holding a pile of cash as though it were a cellphone during the NHL lockout also elicited public criticism. "Its obviously something that you dont want to be dealing with consistently but you play in a Canadian market, people are going to look to find anything to talk about or write about and next thing you know its front page news," Kane said.
