There is no timetable for Evander Kane. Both skated today at MTS.
Kane remains out indefinitely with a concussion. The power forward scored 18 goals and 31 points in 46 games before getting hurt. Don't expect the Jets to rush their prized forward back into the lineup.
Evander Kane &Tim Stapleton are not w/ the Jets in Philly.
Kane remains out indefinitely with a concussion so not travelling with the team is no surprise. The power forward scored 18 goals and 31 points in 46 games before getting hurt. Don't expect the Jets to rush their prized forward back into the lineup.
The 20-year-old Jets forward had three games he’d rather forget to kick off the season and suffered a lower-body injury blocking a shot in Phoenix on Saturday that kept him out of Monday’s 2-1 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Kane likely draws in for Brett MacLean. Through his first three games in a Jets uniform, the former fourth overall pick was snake-bitten with 12 SOG, no points and a minus-2 rating. Look for him to improve with some much needed rest.
“I just wanted a little bit more out of him,” Noel said. “I don’t equate an A game with only shots and only hits. I equate it with performance, like with everybody. So I would’ve liked his performance to be better, but I could’ve missed shifts with a lot of guys.
Kane contributed at both ends of the ice on Sunday but failed to show up on the box score. Last season he scored 19 goals and 43 points through 73 games with the now-defunct Atlanta Thrashers. Expect him to improve on last season's totals.
