According to a source, Evander Kane's ribs were a particular focus of his evaluation at the hospital.

He crashed hard into the boards after he was shoved by Montreal's Alexei Emelin when he was racing to collect a puck deep in the Canadiens' zone. It's still unclear how long he could be sidelined for.

Evander Kane left Thursday's game with Montreal early, and was taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure.

Kane was in full stride when he took a normal hit from Alexi Emelin by the left circle in Montreal's zone. He slid into the boards thunderously on his left side, and had to be helped off the ice as he couldn't put any weight down on his left leg. Kane managed three shots in 12:43 of action.

Evander Kane found the back of the net in Wednesday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Carolina Hurricanes.

It's certainly been an eventful off-season for Kane, as he had some off-ice issues to deal with. If he could ever get his head on straight, he might become a very productive NHL player. Until then, he might continue to disappoint. Last year, the 25-year-old hit the 20-goal mark for the second time in his career and he did it in just 65 games. Kane has more to give, it's all about his commitment level at this point. He's a high-risk, high-reward fantasy play in 2016-17.

Evander Kane insisted that he is staying focused on the upcoming season despite his off-ice issues.

He shrugged off his legal problems on Thursday when he spoke to the media. "I've been focused on hockey all summer," Kane said. "I haven't really put too much thought or emphasis on the other stuff. I've just kind of narrowed my focus and focused on hockey and my training, and I'm feeling pretty good about that." He is scheduled to return to court Oct. 31 where he is facing a misdemeanor criminal trespass and five noncriminal charges of disorderly conduct and harassment.

Evander Kane's off-ice issues and on-ice inconsistencies may force Buffalo GM Tim Murray into a difficult decision.

Kane's legal run-ins this summer have dominated the headlines after he produced 35 points in 65 contests during his first year with the Sabres. He hasn't been convicted of any crimes, but his lack of maturity has followed him from Winnipeg to Buffalo. If they decide to trade Kane then it probably wouldn't bring in a very good return right now, but it could be the best option if they feel the distractions are too much and he won't change his bad habits. A possible deal to Vancouver has emerged from the rumor mill.

Tim Murray isn't pleased that Evander Kane found himself back in the news for the wrong reasons.

Last week, Kane was part of a group of people that was escorted from a bar in Buffalo, but the exact nature of the crime committed isn't known. "I've heard the stories," Murray said. "The very first part of it that came out didn't sound very good. The police will investigate. There'll be evidence or there won't be evidence, and they'll either go forward or they'll go away. If it's true, then we have to deal with it the way we have to deal with it. If it's false again, then I guess we have to come up with a different plan of attack on how to make sure that these accusations that may not be true, how we stop them."

Evander Kane missed the last six games of the season due to a hand injury.

His first season in Buffalo had some ups and downs. Kane registered 20 goals, 35 points, 91 penalty minutes and 271 shots in 65 appearances. He also ended up tied for 37th in the NHL with 2.6 hits per game. Kane is looking forward to continuing to his career with the Sabres and he is hoping to make improvements off the ice to further his development on it. "It's such a long season, and I play some hard minutes, so I try to get as much rest as possible," he said. "At the same time, you've got to find times where you can work on certain things, maybe stay out a little extra longer and get some work in throughout the course of the season. I tried to do that a little more toward these last 25 games that I played, and I think it paid off because I was much better."
