Kane Propels Jets' Offense In Loss

News: Evander Kane assisted on all three Winnipeg goals in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Penguins.
Analysis: Can't pin this one on Evander Kane, who also went plus-2 on the evening. He continues his post-injury surge, having racked up seven points in eight games after missing time with a lower-body ailment.

Jets' Kane Heating Up

News: Evander Kane has been hot since returning to action on Jan. 10, netting three goals in his last four games alone.
Analysis: Evander Kane carried a three-game goal-scoring streak into Friday's contest against the Blackhawks. Although Kane wasn't able to extend the streak to four games, his recent production is certainly promising, and his stock appears to be on the rise. If Kane continues to produce offensively, he may make a push for increased ice time going forward.

Jets' Kane Playing Well Through Pain

News: Evander Kane potted a goal, attempted four shots and picked up two PIM in Tuesday's 8-2 win over the Panthers.
Analysis: Though Evander Kane acknowledged earlier in the day Tuesday that he's not 100 percent recovered from the lower-body injury that sidelined him for about two weeks, it hasn't shown in his play. In his three games since returning to action, Kane has notched two goals, 13 shot attempts, six PIM and 10 hits. Even while he remains relegated to a third-line role, Kane still offers plenty of all-around value in mid-sized or deeper leagues.

Jets' Kane Not Fully Healthy

News: Though Evander Kane was able to suit up for both of the Jets' games over the weekend, he acknowledged that he isn't 100 percent healthy yet, Paul Friesen of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: After sustaining a lower-body injury in late December, Evander Kane was projected to be out until February, but ended up returning to action three weeks ahead of schedule. With that in mind, it's no surprise that he's not feeling completely recovered from the injury, but it hasn't appeared to be too limiting thus far. Over his two games since returning, he's potted a goal while attempting nine shots. He'll continue to play regularly despite his less-than-optimal health.

Jets' Kane Scores, Picks Up Four Pim In Loss

News: Evander Kane scored his seventh goal of the season and collected four PIM in Sunday's loss to the Ducks.
Analysis: Evander Kane has a goal and nine shots on goal in two games since returning from a lower-body injury. The 23-year-old now has seven goals and 16 points in 28 games on the season, to go with 50 PIM. While he's currently skating on the third line, it won't be long before he's back in the Winnipeg's top-six. He'll play a key role for the surging Jets, as they look to make a second-half playoff push. While he isn't having the best season, he's looked good since returning from injury, so if he keeps it up, Kane is definitely worth a look.

Jets' Kane (Lower Body) Will Play Saturday

News: Coach Paul Maurice confirmed that Evander Kane (lower body) would be activated from injured reserve and suit up Saturday against the Kings, Ed Tait of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.
Analysis: The Jets initially projected Evander Kane to be sidelined through the end of the month, but he'll beat that return timetable by three weeks. He was a full participant during the Jets' morning session Saturday, skating alongside Adam Lowry and Matt Halischuk on the third line. The winger's return should give the Jets a needed offensive boost in their bottom six.

Jets' Kane (Lower Body) Could Play Saturday

News: Evander Kane (lower body) could be back in the lineup Saturday against the Kings, Shane Hnidy of TSN reports.
Analysis: Though he remains listed on injured reserve, Evander Kane took rushes with the third line during the Jets' morning skate, suggesting an activation might be on the way. The winger had hoped to return at some point during the the ongoing four-game road trip, so a return to action Saturday wouldn't qualify as a major surprise. The Jets look to be closing in on getting their roster back to full strength, as injured blueliners Toby Enstrom and Mark Stuart were also able to skate Saturday.

Jets' Kane (Lower Body) Hoping To Play On Trip

News: Evander Kane (lower body) said Wednesday that he hopes to be available at some point during the Jets' four-game road trip that begins Thursday, Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.
Analysis: It's quite the change in fortune for Evander Kane, who wasn't expected to be back until early February. The road trip will come to an end Jan. 13 against the Panthers, so if Kane is able to return by that point, he'd beat his recovery timetable by more than two weeks. Kane provided optimism for an early return by taking to the ice in a non-contact jersey at Wednesday's practice, and apparently fared well enough for the Jets to feel comfortable bringing him along on the trip.

Jets' Kane (Lower Body) Skates Wednesday

News: Evander Kane (lower body) was on the ice for Wednesday's practice, Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.
Analysis: Evander Kane was wearing a no-contact jersey and should continue to do so for the next week or longer, as he's not expected to return to action until February. Mathieu Perreault has assumed Kane's spot on the second line in the interim.

Jets Place Kane (Lower Body) On Injured Reserve

News: Evander Kane (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Monday.
Analysis: Evander Kane was already ruled out until February, so the move to injured reserve was just to open up a roster spot so the Jets could recall Keaton Ellerby. The move shouldn't adjust Kane's timetable, which is currently set for some point in February.

Jets' Kane Out Until February

News: Evander Kane (lower body) will be out until February, Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.
Analysis: Evander Kane was considered questionable heading into Monday's game versus the Wild after blocking a shot over the weekend, but his injury was evidently more serious than the Jets had anticipated. He'll be replaced by T.J. Galiardi for Monday, and likely for the foreseeable future. Kane has six goals and nine assists in 26 games so far, but will need to wait until February to add to those totals.

Evander Kane

Jets' Kane (Lower Body) Questionable Monday

News: Evander Kane is questionable for Monday's game against the Wild with a lower-body injury, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: Evander Kane's injury likely originated in Saturday's game against the Wild in which he collected two assists and five shots on goal. He should receive an update prior to the opening faceoff, but if he can't go, his next chance to return would be Wednesday against the Islanders.

Evander Kane

Jets' Kane Adds Two Helpers Saturday

News: Evander Kane grabbed two assists while firing five shots on goal and skated to a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 4-3 OT win over the Wild.
Analysis: Both of Evander Kane's helpers came in the third period and gave the Jets a temporary lead each time, with the second apple on Blake Wheeler's shorthanded goal being particularly impressive. Despite having underwhelmingly recorded just six goals and 15 points this season, Kane has quietly racked up five points over his last six games and has generally maintained his value by way of PIM (46) when he hasn't been scoring.

Jets' Kane Chips In Two Points

News: Evander Kane scored on a power play and added an even-strength assist Tuesday in a 5-1 win over Buffalo.
Analysis: He'd gone three straight without registering on the scoresheet, hitting a particularly low low Saturday, when he didn't put a shot on goal and went minus-3 in a loss to Anaheim, but Evander Kane and the Jets bounced back nicely in this one. However, his offensive output remains disappointing -- the No. 4 pick from 2009's draft has only 12 points in 22 games, a pace that lags well behind his production from the last few seasons, and he's had trouble staying healthy too.

Jets' Kane Returns From Suspension

News: Evander Kane recorded seven hits, but no shots in Saturday's return from suspension. He was also minus-2 in a 4-1 loss to the Ducks.
Analysis: He's on pace for his worst full-season production since his rookie season in Atlanta (excluding the lockout year, of course). This forgetable season just keeps getting worse, but who knows -- maybe this last suspension might bring him some perspective. OK -- that is delusional, isn't it? He needs to be benched until he figures this out.

Suspension Over For Jets' Kane

News: Evander Kane has completed his two-game suspension and will be eligible to play Saturday against the Ducks.
Analysis: Evander Kane received the two-game ban for boarding the Ducks' Clayton Stoner last Sunday. The 23-year-old has four goals, 10 points and 44 PIM over 20 games on the season.

Evander Kane

Jets' Kane Suspended Two Games

News: The NHL Department of Player Safety has suspended Evander Kane for two games for boarding Ducks defenseman Clayton Stoner.
Analysis: Evander Kane is not a repeat offender, but the distance he travelled to hit Stoner, and the fact that Stoner was turned around the entire time earned Kane the two games. He'll be eligible to return for Saturday's game when the Jets take on the Ducks again.

Kane Pots Two Power-Play Goals For Jets

News: Evander Kane scored two power-play goals -- one into an empty net -- and collected two PIM in Tuesday's win over the Jackets.
Analysis: While it's been a quiet start to the year for Evander Kane, he's been warming up a little lately, having notched five points in his last six games now.

Evander Kane

Jets' Kane Pots Goal In Loss

News: Evander Kane added his second goal of the year in Sunday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Wild.
Analysis: Evander Kane has gotten off to a slow start in the points department, but he now has two in the past two days. The goals should start to come, as he's shooting at just a 5.5 percent clip, well below his career average.

Evander Kane

Jets' Kane Goes Gordie Howe

News: Evander Kane scored his first goal of the year -- and the 100th of his career -- while adding an assist and seven PIM in Thursday's shootout loss to the Penguins.
Analysis: That's a Gordie Howe hat trick for Evander Kane, who fired up the crowd in Winnipeg by beating down the Pens' Simon Despres, but it wasn't enough in the end. With three points in the last two games, Kane is starting to turn things on after going scoreless in his first four contests since returning from the knee injury that kept him out to start the year.

Evander Kane

Jets' Kane Nets Winner In Shootout

News: Evander Kane scored the game-winning goal in the shootout in a 1-0 win over the Rangers on Saturday night.
Analysis: It was a beauty of a shot that went high blocker and in. Henrik Lundqvist got a bit of it, but it was moving too fast. The Jets need him to start putting up points and this is a nice start.

Evander Kane

Jets' Kane Quiet In Return

News: Evander Kane (knee) contributed no points and attempted three shots in his return to action Thursday against the Devils.
Analysis: It was probably unrealistic for Evander Kane to deliver immediately upon returning from an injury that knocked him out of action for two weeks, and the Jets were likely just happy that the forward made it through the contest without any setbacks. He saw 17:07 worth of ice time while skating on the second line with Blake Wheeler and Mark Scheifele.

Evander Kane, LW, WPG

Evander Kane

Jets' Kane To Return Thursday

News: Evander Kane (knee) has been activated from injured reserve and will suit up for Thursday's game against the Devils.
Analysis: Evander Kane has been sidelined since injuring his knee in the season opener, but he is set to return to action after making it through Thursday's morning skate without issue. Look for him to immediately rejoin Mark Scheifele and Blake Wheeler on the Jets' second line.

Evander Kane

Jets' Kane Making Positive Progress

News: Coach Paul Maurice said Evander Kane (knee) is progressing well and could begin skating before the end of the week, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: The Jets likely won't have a definitive timetable on Evander Kane until after he starts taking part in practices in some capacity, but an early- to mid-November return would seem realistic at this time. The winger was set to play a vital role for the Jets on the second line to open the season, before he suffered the knee injury after just 1:24 of action in the team's first game.

Jets Shift Kane (Knee) To Injured Reserve

News: Evander Kane (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.
Analysis: With Evander Kane probably at least three weeks away from returning to game action, the Jets didn't want to get by with only 22 players until he was deemed ready to go. Look for the team to call up a forward from AHL St. John's prior to their next game, scheduled for Friday against the Predators.
