Evander Kane (knee) was on the ice for Wednesday's practice and he feels like he could play as soon as Thursday night.

"It felt good," said Kane, who wasn't wearing a no-contact jersey during the session. "Every day it's felt better and better. I feel I'm pretty close, if not there, and we'll see what the doctors have to say. I think I could play tomorrow but, unfortunately, it's not up to me. We'll see what happens, what the docs say and hopefully we get some good news and I'll be able to play. If not, hopefully it's the next game."

Evander Kane (knee) has resumed skating on his own and the plan remains for him to travel with the team.

"We'll get him out for some light bumping here and (he'll) still do the (injured reserve) skates on his own. I don't have a better timeline, but he's ahead of where we hoped he'd be or thought he'd be with the injury," coach Paul Maurice said. "He's at least a week away in my mind, but he's coming with the team and he's skating with the team. I'm hoping by the end of this trip he's practicing with us, whether he's wearing a non-contact sweater or not." Kane hasn't played since Oct. 9 due to a knee injury.

The Winnipeg Jets are planning on having Evander Kane travel with the team on their upcoming four-game road trip.

Kane suffered a knee injury in Winnipeg’s opening game and has now missed six games. The Jets offense has been lacking so far this season and getting Kane back will give them a huge boost. It’s unclear when the 23-year-old will be back in the lineup.

Evander Kane (knee) is progressing ahead of schedule, according to coach Paul Maurice.

"Evander Kane is progressing quite well to the point where we have an expectation that in the next few days, he'll be back on IR skates," said Winnipeg's bench boss. "It's what we call them, non-main-group skates so nobody runs into a guy. But he'll be back on the ice, we think, sometime this weekend and after that, it's as much about strength and healing time and things like that so that's kind of positive news about him." An exact timetable for his return isn't known, but it looks like it will be at some point in November because a return next week may be wishful thinking.

Evander Kane (knee) has been placed on the injured reserve list.

The move is retroactive to October 9 when Kane played three shifts in the opener before leaving the game. He should be evaluated again next week.

Winnipeg Jets' head coach Paul Maurice said that Evander Kane's knee injury will be re-evaluated in two weeks.

"There’s a big area on how long it takes to heal these things up," Maurice said. "So, to be quite honest with you, it was better news than I was expecting. I really was not hopeful yesterday and that’s why it’s good you don’t say anything about it. So, better news, but he is going to be out of our lineup for the near future."

If the Winnipeg Sun's Ken Wiebe is correct, Winnipeg Jets power forward Evander Kane could miss approximately two weeks with a knee injury.

That's a tough setback for a player many believe is a rising star (who also had a rough 2013-14 season and went through a tumultuous offseason). On the bright side, he might only miss between 7-10 games, which isn't as bad as some feared, although knee injuries can be tricky. Kane's best season came in 2011-12: 30 goals, 57 points, 287 SOG and 173 hits.
Oct 11 - 4:12 PM

There is no further update on the severity of Evander Kane's knee injury.

As soon as news breaks we will pass it along to you. What we do know is that he won't play either Saturday or Sunday night.
Oct 11 - 2:16 PM

Evander Kane (knee) is dealing with more than a "day-to-day" injury.

We still don't have a more detailed timetable to work with, but it seems reasonable to assume that Kane won't be available on Saturday or Sunday. He sustained the injury during Thursday's contest.
Oct 10 - 6:12 PM

Evander Kane (lower body) didn't participate in Friday's morning skate.

Kane left Thursday's season opener due to the injury. The Jets haven't provided an update on Kane yet, so for now he should be regarded as day-to-day.
Oct 10 - 4:33 PM

Evander Kane left Thursday's season opener after just three shifts due to a lower-body injury.

He was slightly off-balance at the blueline and collided with teammate Mark Scheifele. Kane was helped off the ice and he tried to return, but he left for the locker room shortly afterward. He ended up with just 1:24 of ice time and the Jets aren't sure what his status is yet. We should know more after he gets re-evaluated.
Oct 10 - 8:34 AM

The Winnipeg Jets top line of Evander Kane, Mark Scheifele and Blake Wheeler showed some great chemistry in the team’s final preseason game on Saturday.

The line combined for four points in the team’s 4-1 over the Flames. After a disappointing season, look for Evander Kane to bounce back in a big way in 2014-15. If the Jets want to make the playoffs, this line will have to produce throughout the season.
Oct 5 - 11:13 AM

Evander Kane contributed to two of the Jets’ goals in their 4-1 win over the Flames on Saturday night.

He scored and assisted. As someone who has no problem getting pucks to the net, Kane could easily return to the 30-goal mark this season. If he does that, 60 points can’t be out of the question, either. Blake Wheeler and Jacob Trouba notched the other goals. Ondrej Pavelec was asked to make 18 saves, and he stopped 17 of them.
Oct 4 - 10:47 PM

Evander Kane was back in the lineup on Tuesday after taking some time to rest last week.

He missed several days late last week due to minor issues. Kane didn't score in his return, but he was credited with four shots and eight hits in 21:45 of ice time.
