Evander Kane skated in Mathieu Perreault's place on the second line during Sunday's shootout win over Arizona.
He had been playing well with Adam Lowry and Matt Halischuk, but with Perreault injured he was skating alongside Mark Scheifele and Michael Frolik. Froliks scored in the match and Scheifele picked up an assist, but Kane didn't get on the scoresheet. He was credited with five hits, two shots and a minor penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct, though. Jan 19 - 8:21 AM

Evander Kane scored a shorthanded goal in the third period to lift Winnipeg over Dallas 2-1 on Thursday night.

Kane's ninth goal of the season also extends his goal streak to three consecutive games. The 23-year-old flash has 18 points in 30 games so far this season. Kane will be in tough trying to continue the streak on Friday as the Jets meet the Chicago Blackhawks.
Jan 16 - 12:42 AM

Evand Kane will start Saturday's tilt with the LA Kings on the Jets' third line to the left of Adam Lowry and Matt Halischuk.

Kane enters the contest with nine goals, 15 points, 46 PIMs and 85 hits in 26 games this season. A categorical monster. While Halischuk doesn't offer much fantasy value, Lowry certainly does with a team-leading 127 hits and 30 PIMs through 40 games.

The Winnipeg Jets activated winger Evander Kane from injured reserve on Saturday, so he's likely available to play.

It's been a bumpy season injury-wise for the young power forward, but he continues to bring a useful mix of scoring, hits and PIM to the table when he's healthy. He's an easy start against the up-and-down Arizona Coyotes.

Despite practising with a non-contact jersey with his teammates this week, Evander Kane might have to wait a little longer before returning to action.

He still needs medical clearance to return from a lower-body injury. Kane will likely not play Saturday night, but he is getting closer. Stay tuned for updates.

Evander Kane (lower body) skated with a no-contact jersey on Wednesday.

He is going to travel with the team on their upcoming three-game road trip and he's hoping to play on it at some point. "It’s now a comfort level with taking contact and being able to withstand the demands of an NHL game," he said. He was originally projected to be sidelined until February, so he's pretty far ahead of that schedule. Stay tuned.
Jan 7 - 4:34 PM

Evander Kane (lower body) has been moved to injured reserve.

The Jets made the move so they could recall Keaton Ellerby to help assist their banged up defense corps. Kane won't be available to return until February.
Jan 6 - 8:54 AM

Evander Kane's lower-body injury will keep him out of the Jets' lineup until at least February.

Kane suffered the injury when he blocked a shot during Saturday's game. This is naturally a big blow for the Jets, which will now enter a critical stretch in their fight for a playoff spot without one of their major scoring threats. That being said, Kane hasn't contributed nearly as much as anticipated this season. He has just six goals and 15 points in 26 games in 2014-15. With Kane sidelined, it looks like Chris Thorburn will play alongside Adam Lowry and Matt Halischuk.

Evander Kane is slated to be re-evaluated to see if he'll play in Monday's game against Minnesota.

He blocked a shot late in Saturday's game versus the Wild and he missed Sunday's practice as a result. Patrice Cormier was called up from the minors, which means you should consider Kane day-to-day until the Jets update his status.

Evander Kane was not on the ice with his Jets' teammates Sunday morning.

He might be getting the day off after he took a puck off the foot from teammate Jay Harrison in Saturday night's 4-3 win over Minnesota. Or he might have actually injured himself more significantly. Check back with us on this.

Evander Kane produced a goal and an assist in Winnipeg's 5-1 win against Buffalo on Tuesday night.

He has five goals and 12 points in 22 games this campaign. Kane had gone goalless in six appearances after he scored a pair against Columbus on Nov. 25.

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.

Evander Kane have served his two-game suspension for boarding and is expected to play on Saturday.

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 has been suspended for two games for a boarding infraction on Anaheim defenseman Clayton Stoner.

Evander Kane will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety on Monday.

Kane was given a five-minute major and a game misconduct for a check from behind on Anaheim defenseman Clayton Stoner during Sunday's contest. Stoner wasn't injured on the play.
