The Jets have reportedly traded Evander Kane, Zach Bogosian and Jason Kasdorf to the Sabres for Tyler Myers, Drew Stafford, Joel Armia, Brendan Lemieux and a 1st round pick.
Kane, 23, is out for the season after undergoing shoulder surgery earlier in the week. He is in the third year of a six-year deal with a $5.25M cap-hit. He is a dynamic, goal-scoring winger who will be a nice piece for the Sabres as they continue their rebuild. Kane has 109 goals and 113 assists (222 points) in 361 games in his first six seasons in the NHL. He makes for a nice keeper option, because you could see him on the wing with Connor McDavid next season.
Kane had shoulder surgery on Saturday; out 4-6 months.
Despite all the trade rumours surrounding Kane, this shoulder surgery will likely slow the rumours down. However a team that is out of the playoff race that may be interested in him, might be wise to make a move for him now. His value will be slightly lower and hey, it will help them lose games and get Connor McDavid.
Kane will have shoulder surgery and will miss the rest of the season.
The Jets medical staff elected it is best for Kane to undergo season ending shoulder surgery. There is no word on when Kane will undergo the surgery, but the expected recovery time is 4-6 months. It looks like he has played his final game in a Jets uniform.

It has been a crazy day for Evander Kane news and this is the latest development. His IR move is retroactive to January 2nd, which means he will miss at least the next two games with whatever it is that is bothering him. Monitor his status leading up to next Tuesday’s game vs. the Wild.
Kane did not show up for the Jets game on Tuesday after a run-in with teammates.
It was originally believed that Kane was scratched from the game, but he decided to skip the game. Kane wore a track suit when the Jets players gathered that morning — a violation of team policy. Following a brief workout and stretch, Byfuglien is said to have thrown those clothes into the shower to send a message to his teammate, according to sources.That was the last the Winnipeg players saw of Kane until the team’s charter flight home. This is getting juicy, stay tuned.
The Jets do not have an extra forward, so Dustin Byfuglien will move back to forward with Kane out. It is being called a “coach’s decision” so it could be discipline related. Trade speculation will run ramped, but for now, all we know is “coach’s decision”.
Kane has missed the last five games with a lower-body injury, but will be back in tonight vs. the Kings. His return comes much earlier than originally anticipated, which is great news for the Jets. He will play with Adam Lowry and Matt Halischuk.

Kane (lower-body) is not on the ice for the Jets morning skate.
Kane was listed as questionable for tonight’s game with a lower-body injury and his absence from the morning skate is not a good sign that he will be available tonight vs. the Wild. We will get an update following the skate.
Kane has served his two-game suspension and will return on Saturday.
