Evander Kane LW BUF Aug 30 '78
Evander Kane's agent, Craig Oster, said that the hockey in the KHL didn't fit his client's style.
"I've spoken to Evander and he just found the hockey to be different," said Oster on Friday after Kane was released by Dinamo Minsk. "The style to be different, the training to be different. I think the coaching was a challenge at times. This arrangement didn't have a set time limit. It was a month-to-month deal. For both sides it felt like it had run its course." Kane scored one goal, which was his only point, in 12 KHL games and he was criticized by his coach for coming over out of shape. He should be able to get back on track when the NHL resumes, as the 21-year-old has displayed plenty of promise in North America. He netted 30 goals and had 57 points with the Jets last season.
