Evander Kane tallied his 11th goal of the year in Tuesday's 3-2 win over Ottawa.

Evander Kane scored the lone goal for the Sabres in a 2-1 loss to Colorado on Wednesday.

That is now points in four of his last six games (2G, 3A) for Kane. The 24 year-old still has just 10 goals and 8 assists for 18 points in 37 games thus far. He is a possible buy low candidate at this point as a better second half is certainly looking achievable.

Evander Kane recorded a goal and an assist in the Sabres’ 4-1 win against the Capitals on Saturday night.

He also had five shots on goal. These are the types of efforts the Sabres were expecting from him when they acquired him last season. This was his first goal since Dec. 26, a span of nine games, though it hasn’t come without a boatload of shots. Kane has nine goals and 17 points this season, ranking 25th with 131 shots on goal. Cody Franson, Phillip Varone and Tim Schaller picked up the other goals. Zach Bogosian had two assists.

Evander Kane picked up an assist in his return to Winnipeg on Sunday in a 4-2 win for the Sabres.

He had a chance to score into an empty net, but he unselfishly chose to slide the puck to Sam Reinhart so that the rookie forward could record his first career hat trick. "I thought it was great," said coach Dan Bylsma. "I got a couple texts after the game that said, 'That was a class move by Evander to dish the puck over' because I know how much he wanted to score one tonight." He received plenty of boos and hostile chants from the crowd throughout the game. Kane was also leveled on a couple of big hits in the match, while finishing with four hits of his own and three shots.

Evander Kane will make his return to Winnipeg this Sunday when the Sabres visit his old team.

"I'm sure it'll be entertaining," Kane said. "I don't really know what to expect. I expect to win a hockey game. That's first and foremost for me. I guess everybody will see what happens when it happens." He will probably face a hostile crowd, as his time in Winnipeg was rocky at best. Kane doesn't have a point in his last five games and before he heads to Winnipeg, Buffalo will play at Chicago on Friday night.

Evander Kane said Monday he has done nothing wrong after a report broke that he is the subject of a sex-offense investigation by Buffalo police.

"Obviously, you guys are all aware of the situation that occurred or that's going on right now," said Kane. "There's not a whole lot I can say. I just want to say I've done nothing wrong. I look forward to clearing my name. I respect the legal process and unfortunately at this time there's not much more I can talk about it." He will be in the lineup on Monday night against Washington on his regular line.

Evander Kane is reportedly being investigated by the Buffalo police for a sex offense that allegedly occurred Sunday morning.

The Buffalo News is citing "three police sources." That being said it needs to be stressed that Kane hasn't been charged with a crime and the police haven't confirmed that he is even subject to an investigation. The Sex Offense Squad in Buffalo does have an ongoing investigation, but they are not naming a suspect. It is worth noting that Kane missed Sunday's practice for personal reasons, although that it could be a coincidence. The Sabres have said in a released statement that they "take the allegation made today against Evander Kane very seriously" and are gathering facts. They won't comment further until they have more information.

Evander Kane is on a three-game point streak.

Kane found the back of the net in Buffalo's 6-3 victory over Boston on Saturday. Perhaps he'll be able to build off of this point streak after a disappointing start to his first campaign with Buffalo. He has eight goals and 13 points in 25 contests thus far.

Evander Kane's second period goal against Anaheim on Thursday night not only ended his six game pointless drought, but it stood as the game winner.

Kane now has seven goals and 11 points in 23 games. The 24-year-old has struggled to find consistency in his first few months with the Sabres, but coming off a major injury and playing on a new team might have factored into his slow start.

Evander Kane will skate alongside Jack Eichel on Thursday night.

"They had some success earlier in the season playing together," coach Dan Bylsma said. "There wasn't a lot of finish in that success but they had opportunities and I think it's two guys that have a ton of speed and can really play off each other." Brian Gionta will be the third member of the combination.

Kane has posted three straight multi-point games. It's the first time he's done so since January, 2013. The power forward has six goals and 10 points in 16 games in '15-16. Hopefully this is a sign of things to come for the 24-year-old.

Kane finished the game with a plus-3 rating, two penalty minutes, two shots on goal and two hits in 21:13 of action. He has six goals and 10 points in 16 games.

Evander Kane has been heating up with three goals and five points in his last four games.

He appears to be comfortable on a line with Ryan O’Reilly and Sam Reinhart. Kane has felt more like himself in the past two games, as he has been physical on the forecheck and is sending plenty of pucks on goal.
