Evander Kane has been one of the NHL hottest goal scorers for the last few months.

Kane has scored 18 goals in Buffalo's last 32 games after struggling to start the season, due in part, to a rib injury. The talented winger got the chance to play alongside Jack Eichel against Toronto Saturday night and scored two goals and was dangerous all night long. Needless to say, Kane is a must start at the moment.

It will be interesting to see if Buffalo tries to move Evander Kane at the trade deadline.

The team may decide to sell high on him now if they feel he won't be a core part of the future. Buffalo was looking to deal him over the summer because of his issues off the ice. "The off-ice stuff, we've worked through that and we continue to work with him. It will never be forgotten obviously, nor do we want to forget," said GM Tim Murray. "You learn from mistakes. But on the ice, what I see now is what we traded for I think. I'm a fan of his game." Kane has amassed 23 points in the last 32 games.

Evander Kane scored a pair of goals in Tuesday's 5-4 OT win over the San Jose Sharks.

The Sabres opened the scoring in the first period, but they found themselves 4-1 with less than 14 minutes remaining in the third frame. That's when Buffalo went to work, as they got goals from Ryan O'Reilly (4-2), Kane (4-3) and Kyle Okposo (4-4). In overtime, it was Kane who gave the Sabres the win with his second goal of the game. After he scored, Kane crashed into the boards awkwardly and was slow to get up. Kane now has 16 goals and 10 assists in 42 games this season.
Feb 7 - 10:02 PM

He leads the Sabres with 13 even-strength goals and he has accounted for nine points in the past nine contests. Kane has been directing plenty of pucks to the net during that time. In his last nine games, he has averaged 4.6 shots per match. If Kane keeps piling up shots and maintains his personal best 11.5 shooting percentage then he should hit around 25 goals this season.

Kane made a nice move, blowing by John Klingberg and putting the puck passed Antti Niemi for the first goal of the game. The two goals give Kane 14 on the year. He now has 23 in 37 games. He is an intriguing fantasy asset because he brings a nice combination of goals and penalty minutes. Matt Moulson also scored for Buffalo in the loss.
