Evander Kane has been shifting between linemates even though he has been successful offensively lately.

He has skated alongside the pairings of Jack Eichel and Kyle Okposo, Zemgus Girgensons and Nic Deslauriers as well as Johan Larsson and Brian Gionta. Kane doesn't mind being a line nomad as long as he's playing and he has been playing well with 11 points in the past 10 games.

Evander Kane waited until there was 2:37 on the clock in the third to score the only goal for the Buffalo Sabres as they lost a 2-1 contest to the Carolina Hurricanes.

Kane’s goal was all the more remarkable because it came only a few minutes after he was shaken up in an entanglement with a defenseman and referee. Kane scored his first goal of the season as recently as December 3rd against the Bruins and now he has scored in every other game that he has played.

Coach Dan Bylsma wants Evander Kane to cut out the bad penalties he has been taking.

"The type of penalties are more the discussion point than the penalties," Bylsma said. "Evander is an aggressive guy, a physical guy, and we want him to be and need him to be. If he's taking penalties being aggressive and being physical, then that's one we'll kill." Kane has heated up lately with three goals and five points in five games, which is the kind of play that Bylsma and the Sabres are looking for from him.

Evander Kane scored his first multi-point game of the season during Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Oilers.

Kane's pair of goals including the game-tying goal with just 29 seconds to go, sending it to overtime. He's now three goals and five points in his last five games after only a couple of assists in his first 10 outings.

Evander Kane, who seems to be rounding into form after a slow and injury plagued start to the season, needs to shoot the puck more.

So says Buffalo coach Dan Bylsma. Kane averaged 4.2 shots per game in 2015-16, third most in the NHL. This season the talented winger is averaging only 2.4 shots per contest and Bylsma thinks that is why his production is down. All that said, Kane seems to be rebounding from his difficult start. If he can be obtained cheaply, do so, as Kane is a good buy-low target.

Evander Kane scored his first goal of the season during Saturday's 2-1 loss to Boston.

What a relief. Kane's troubled season appears to beginning to turn around as he rides a three-game point streak. He has five points in 13 games thus far, with three points during the streak.

Evander Kane is currently riding a 10-game goalless drought.

He's only played in 10 games this season, which means he's still searching for his first goal of the year. Much like his Sabres teammates, Kane has been struggling to find the back of the net. There's not much fantasy appeal in Buffalo's lineup. Other Sabres that are struggling to score: Derek Grant (no goals in 21 games), Zemgus Girgensons (no goals in last 18 games), Brian Gionta (one goal in 13 games), Johan Larsson (one goal in last 12 games), Kyle Okposo (one goal in last 10 games). If you can avoid using Sabres on your fantasy team, you'll be better off.

Well, so much for that homecoming for Evander Kane.

Simply put, the Canucks balked at the Sabres' "high asking price" for Evander Kane according to Elliotte Friedman. And who could blame them? The oft-injured winger who consistently has (potential) legal troubles has not been able to put forth a satisfying effort in Buffalo. While it's true that Minnesota has also inquired, it seems unlikely that any team will pay a significant price for Kane. At this time, anyway.

The Vancouver Canucks have made it known they're interested in potentially acquiring Evander Kane, but that appears to be on hold now.

Bob McKenzie is reporting that the trade is "no longer being pursued," but that doesn't mean it won't be revisited again at some point down the road. Kane, as you know, is a native of Vancouver and played for the Giants during his WHL days. The Sabres meanwhile have also made it known they're willing to trade the much-maligned winger as well. He has a point and 16 hits in just six games this season. He also carries a $5.25M cap hit through next season with $6M in salary as well.
