Evander Kane scored a pair of goals in a 3-0 win over the Anaheim Ducks in Game 1 of San Jose's first-round series on Thursday night.

Kane waited for 574 games in the regular season before finally getting to make his NHL playoff debut. His power-play marker in second period opened the scoring and held up as the game winner. He also added another goal shortly later to give the Sharks a 2-0 lead. Kane is now one of four players who have recorded a multi-goal game in this year's Stanley Cup playoffs.

Evander Kane (arm) is set to play in Saturday's game against Minnesota.

Kane took part in the pregame warmups alongside Joe Pavelski and Joonas Donskoi, so he appears to be ready to return to the lineup. The winger has 29 goals and 54 points in 77 games this season.
Apr 7 - 10:17 PM

Evander Kane was initially listed as a game-time decision for tonight's game against the Minnesota Wild, but he didn't appear on San Jose's projected lineup.

Of course, that could change prior to puck drop, but it looks like Kane may sit again and Timo Meier will skate alongside Joe Pavelski and Joonas Donskoi. We'll keep you posted on any new developments.
Apr 7 - 3:10 PM

Evander Kane (arm) will be a game-time decision tonight against the Minnesota Wild.

Kane was listed as a game-time decision in each of the last two games but ultimately sat out both. However, we might see him tonight considering a win would get the Sharks home-ice advantage in the first round of the playoffs. The 26-year-old forward has scored nine goals and picked up 14 points in 16 games in a Sharks uniform.
Apr 7 - 2:16 PM

Evander Kane (arm) was not sure he would be playing Saturday night against the Wild in the Sharks' season finale.

We'd play it safe and leave Kane on the bench if you have a reasonable alternative to put in your lineup.
Apr 7 - 1:17 PM

Evander Kane (arm) won't play in Thursday's game against the Colorado Avalanche.

Kane was questionable for tonight's game, so it isn't surprising to see that he won't suit up. This is the second straight game he'll miss because of the injury. He's considered day-to-day for now. The priority for the Sharks is to get Kane healthy for the start of the playoffs next week.
Apr 5 - 10:15 PM

Evander Kane (arm) is questionable for Thursday's game.

Kane wasn't able to play on Tuesday. Sharks coach Pete DeBoer said that they'll want to err on the side of caution when it comes to Kane, so don't be surprised if he's ultimately held out of Thursday's contest. Kane has 29 goals and 54 points in 77 contests this season.
Apr 5 - 6:44 AM

Evander Kane missed Tuesday's game against the Stars due to an apparent arm injury suffered in Saturday's game against the Golden Knights.

The team likely wants to make sure Kane is ready for the postseason so they're not taking any chances with pushing him and risking further damage. Fantasy owners in daily pools will want to keep Kane reserved until he can return and prove his health. DFS players will want to avoid him, too.
Apr 4 - 3:25 AM

Evander Kane has been ruled out for Tuesday's contest due to an undisclosed injury.

Kane was initially listed as a game-time decision, but thankfully we received a quick update on his status. He should be considered day-to-day for now.
Apr 3 - 1:42 PM

Evander Kane (undisclosed) is slated to be a game-time decision on Tuesday night.

Kane did not participate in Monday's practice. He may have been hurt on Saturday when he temporarily left the bench in the first period. Kane ended up logging 18:10 of ice time in the contest. The morning skate and/or pregame warmups should provide clues for his status against Dallas.
Apr 2 - 3:53 PM

Evander Kane found the back of the net in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the St. Louis Blues.

Kane gave the Sharks a 1-0 lead at the 6:26 mark of the first period. The Sharks forward finished the night with three shots on goal and two blocked shots in 25:03 of ice time. The 26-year-old has scored in three consecutive games (he has four goals during that stretch). Kane has 29 goals and 54 points in 75 games this season. He's been an incredible acquisition for the Sharks since they landed him at the trade deadline. Joe Pavelski (power play) also scored a goal for the Sharks on Tuesday night.
Mar 27 - 10:53 PM

Evander Kane scored an even-strength goal in the second period on Monday at Chicago while taking a game-high 10 shots on net.

Kane has caught fire over the past six outings, scoring seven goals. It's an old adage in hockey, but it obviously makes perfect sense - you can't score if you don't shoot. Kane has racked up four or more shots on goal in each of his past eight outings, and 10 of the past 11 contests. He has a goal and an assist in two games against Chicago since joining the Sharks, and at least one point in four straight meetings against the Blackhawks.
Mar 26 - 11:20 PM

Evander Kane scored two goals and finished with 11 penalty minutes in a 5-1 win over the Calgary Flames.

David Rittich frustrated Kane at the start of the game with a few big saves that eventually got Kane to give him a slight bump after the whistle that started a brawl on the ice. Kane was awarded four minutes worth of penalties on the play but had the last laugh with the win and a two-goal afternoon. Since arriving in San Jose, he's picked up seven goals and 12 points in 12 games, bringing his totals to 27 goals and 52 points this season.
Mar 24 - 6:49 PM

Evander Kane's first hat trick and four-goal game was somewhat historic.

Kane entered Friday night's contest as the NHL player with the most career two-goal games (27) without a hat trick to his name. Upon scoring this third goal of the game, Kane said to his teammates "OMG finally" on finally geting off the no-hat trick list. "I’m off that list with (Pavel) Datsyuk and (Al) MacInnis of most two-goal games," Kane said. "I’ve been reminded of that for a while. It was great to be able to get the third, especially in a real important game." The soon to be UFA Kane has been a very nice trade deadline pickup for the Sharks and may be setting the tone for off-season contract negotiations with San Jose.
