The woman who accused Chicago Blackhawks star Patrick Kane of raping her three months ago is no longer cooperating with the law-enforcement investigation.

The Buffalo News, citing five unnamed sources, said the accuser signed "an affidavit declining prosecution" last week after a meeting at the Erie County district attorney's office in western New York.

Kane, 26, declined to discuss the investigation after practice Tuesday and said he would only take hockey-related questions.

Prosecutors can move forward with the case without the woman's cooperation, but it's unlikely that they would do so.
