A court appearance for Chicago Blackhawk Patrick Kane has been pushed back so he can attend a team function in Chicago next week. Kane's court date for his alleged assault of a Buffalo, N.Y., cab driver will now be August 20.

Kane's attorney requested the date change to allow the 20-year-old to be in Chicago to participate in a team function Monday.

Kane and his cousin, James Kane, 21, allegedly punched the cabbie over a fare dispute early Sunday.
