With the opening of free agency less than 10 days away, TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun reports a date has still not been set for Evander Kane's second grievance hearing with the San Jose Sharks.

LeBrun reports it's doubtful the hearing will take place before July 13, when Kane is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent.

Edmonton Oilers general manager Ken Holland said last month his "hope" was to re-sign Kane this summer. Holland added, however, that he wasn't sure how Kane's grievance process with the Sharks would impact the Oilers ability to sign the winger.
