Evander Kane missed the last six games of the season due to a hand injury.

His first season in Buffalo had some ups and downs. Kane registered 20 goals, 35 points, 91 penalty minutes and 271 shots in 65 appearances. He also ended up tied for 37th in the NHL with 2.6 hits per game. Kane is looking forward to continuing to his career with the Sabres and he is hoping to make improvements off the ice to further his development on it. "It's such a long season, and I play some hard minutes, so I try to get as much rest as possible," he said. "At the same time, you've got to find times where you can work on certain things, maybe stay out a little extra longer and get some work in throughout the course of the season. I tried to do that a little more toward these last 25 games that I played, and I think it paid off because I was much better."

Evander Kane is slated to skate with Ryan O'Reilly when the latter makes his expected return to the lineup on Wednesday.

Kane had been playing well alongside Jack Eichel and Sam Reinhart, but he understands that roster shakeups are necessary. "It obviously makes our forward lineup a lot stronger when you have him in the middle with Jack," Kane said of O'Reilly. "Dan thought that would be the best lineup to go with to start and I’m looking forward to being with him. Me, Jack and 'Ryno' had quite a bit of success. Now that we know we can play like that, it obviously is an option if situations occur."

Evander Kane has been cleared of any wrongdoing, according to a report by Dan Herbeck of the Buffalo News.

"There was never a criminal complaint filed. After a careful and diligent examination of all the known facts, including the results of forensic and toxicological testing, neither the provable facts nor the applicable law support the filing of any criminal charges or a prosecution in this matter," Acting (Erie County) District Attorney Michael J. Flaherty Jr. said in a statement. As a result, Kane will not face any criminal charges in regards to his sexual encounter back in December. While the court of public opinion may never fully settle, it would appear that Kane's name has been cleared in the eyes of the law.

It's something that I can promise you won't happen again and it's something that I'm definitely going to learn from."
