Evander Kane didn't register a shot or a point in Saturday's loss to Anaheim.

It was Kane's first game back from his two-game suspension for boarding Ducks' defenseman Clayton Stoner. The 23-year-old was a minus-3 in the game but did deliver seven hits in 20:20 of game action. "He had seven hits, he was physical, he moved around the lineup a little bit," said Jets' coach Paul Maurice. "He was fine." Kane started the game on a line with Adam Lowry and Matt Halischuk, but played the third period with Mark Scheifele and Michael Frolik.

Winnipeg sent Patrice Cormier to the minors in anticipation of Kane's return. Kane has 10 points and 44 penalty minutes in 20 games this season. Mark Scheifele will also probably see his role decline somewhat when Kane returns as Scheifele had taken Kane's spot alongside Michael Frolik and Mathieu Perreault.

Evander Kane was ejected from Sunday's game against the Ducks.

Evander Kane registered a pair of goals Tuesday in a 4-2 win over Columbus.

Kane's offense hasn't shown up much this season, but two power play tallies and four penalty minutes will please his fantasy owners greatly. Andrew Ladd and Bryan Little also found the back of the net for Winnipeg while Jacob Trouba and Blake Wheeler dished out two assists apiece in the win.
Nov 25 - 9:54 PM

Evander Kane has just two goals in 13 games this season.

Kane and the Jets had high hopes coming into this season. The 23-year-old did miss eight games because of a knee injury but his offensive production is still nowhere close to what it should be. Kane is currently on pace to score only 11 goals, but he should get that number up fairly soon. The Jets have struggled to score goals as a team, but Kane is their best sniper. "There's lots of hockey left this season and it's just the beginning," said Kane. "I think everybody would like to be scoring more and as a team we'd like to be scoring more, so it's going to be up to the top guys such as myself to try to produce more and obviously score a lot more." He is a solid buy-low category.
Nov 23 - 8:50 AM

Evander Kane scored his second goal of the season in Sunday's 4-3 overtime loss to Minnesota.

He registered Winnipeg's second marker during a three-goal run in the third period to tie the game and send it into overtime. Kane filled the stat sheet with four penalty minutes, five shots and seven hits. Consistency continues to elude him, but when he's on his game he can contribute to your fantasy squad in plenty of categories.
Nov 17 - 6:33 AM

Evander Kane racked up a goal an assist and a fight in Winnipeg's 4-3 shootout loss to Pittsburgh on Thursday night to notch a Gordie Howe hat trick.

Nov 6 - 11:43 PM

Evander Kane scored the game-winning goal in the shootout for the Jets against the Rangers on Saturday night, a 1-0 victory.

Other than a hit that separated Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh’s shoulder, Kane had a pretty quiet game, with just one shot on goal. The 23-year-old winger was playing just his third game of the season due to a knee injury. He has difference-making ability. Zach Bogosian and Dustin Byfuglien led the team with five shots on goal apiece.

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."
Oct 30 - 10:18 AM

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.
Oct 27 - 9:46 AM

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.
