Evander Kane's off-ice issues and on-ice inconsistencies may force Buffalo GM Tim Murray into a difficult decision.
Kane's legal run-ins this summer have dominated the headlines after he produced 35 points in 65 contests during his first year with the Sabres. He hasn't been convicted of any crimes, but his lack of maturity has followed him from Winnipeg to Buffalo. If they decide to trade Kane then it probably wouldn't bring in a very good return right now, but it could be the best option if they feel the distractions are too much and he won't change his bad habits. A possible deal to Vancouver has emerged from the rumor mill. Aug 5 - 2:01 PM

Evander Kane is being sued by a 21-year-old Buffalo woman.

Without providing details of how she was injured, her lawyers said she suffered "serious emotional trauma" and "serious, permanent and painful personal injuries." According to the documents that were filed July 1, Kane invited her to a party under "false pretext" and then caused cuts that required multiple surgeries. This is a separate incident to the one he just pleaded not guilty to on Monday. Kane is facing charges of non-criminal harassment, disorderly conduct and trespass from a different alleged altercation on June 24.

Tim Murray isn't pleased that Evander Kane found himself back in the news for the wrong reasons.

Last week, Kane was part of a group of people that was escorted from a bar in Buffalo, but the exact nature of the crime committed isn't known. "I've heard the stories," Murray said. "The very first part of it that came out didn't sound very good. The police will investigate. There'll be evidence or there won't be evidence, and they'll either go forward or they'll go away. If it's true, then we have to deal with it the way we have to deal with it. If it's false again, then I guess we have to come up with a different plan of attack on how to make sure that these accusations that may not be true, how we stop them."

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."
