Evander Kane LW WPG 2 Months

Winnipeg Jets fans looking for some clarity on Evander Kane's apparent desire for a change of scenery aren't getting it from the club's general manager.

Kevin Cheveldayoff, speaking at the end of the Jets development camp, continued to evade questions about whether or not Kane has asked for a trade. "I'm open to look, to see if there's ways to make improvements on this team," Cheveldayoff said. "Without singling out any individual, everyone starts to wonder what's going on." Asked again directly if Kane has asked to be moved, Cheveldayoff wouldn't confirm or deny it. "I have lots of conversations with lots of players all the time... lots of things are said or not said, and those stay in-house," he said. Kane this summer has fueled the speculation he'd rather play elsewhere. The other day, he was on a Vancouver radio station saying he's still a Jet "for now." During the NHL draft, he favourited a tweet about the Philadelphia Flyers acquiring him.

The Jets reportedly want a young top four defenseman or a top six forward for Evander Kane.

That might make trading Kane a challenge for GM Kevin Cheveldayoff. The Jets are certainly shopping the inconsistent Kane, but in the end, he may end up staying in Winnipeg.

The Winnipeg Jets are reportedly considering trading forward Evander Kane and the Edmonton Oilers could be one of the teams most interested in acquiring his services.

It's been speculated in the Edmonton media that the club could be trying to work out a deal for the maligned power forward, however the piece in question suggests the Oilers could offer Nail Yakupov for Kane, which sounds like a terrible deal for Winnipeg.

Evander Kane may have had a down year, but he still had 250 shots on goal this season.

The Jets winger converted on just a 7.6 percent clip for 19 goals in 63 games, compared to a 9.1 percent rate for his career. Just 22 years old, there is still a ton of promise in Kane as there's 30-goal upside here; he reached that mark in the 2011-12 season. Don't overlook him in drafts next season.

Evander Kane isn't sure if his hand will "ever be 100 percent," but he's still able to use it effectively enough.

He said, "I'm able to play and doesn't bother me and I can what do what I need to do." Kane's injured hand became infected in February and he missed some additional time before being able to return. He concluded the season with 19 goals and 41 points in 63 games.

Evander Kane was reportedly scratched on Saturday because he broke a team rule.

The issue apparently wasn't related to breaking curfew, but it's unclear what exactly happened. "This situation with Evander Kane has been addressed three times. He's not the only one," coach Paul Maurice said. "I have dealt with it directly and clearly with the team and player." Kane was back in the lineup for Monday's game against Minnesota. He logged 19:03 of ice time and finished with a minus-1 rating in the Jets' 1-0 loss.

Evander Kane will draw back into the lineup on Monday.

He was a healthy scratch for Saturday's contest in Toronto. It's been a disappointing season for Kane, who entered the season with lofty expectations. Injuries have hampered him along the way, but he's contributed just 17 goals and 39 points in 60 games.

Coach Paul Maurice said Evander Kane's absence from the lineup on Saturday night was a "coach's decision."

He added: "You'll get no rationale from me." Kane has two goals and 10 assists in his last 21 games, so Maurice or someone from the Jets could've just said that Kane's scratching was due to performance. However, that wasn't the case here.

Evander Kane has been accused of assault, which allegedly occurred in Vancouver last summer.

"We did investigate allegations of an assault on that day and at that location, but given the circumstances of the incident there were no arrests made and there was insufficient evidence to support or recommend any criminal charges," Const. Brian Montague told The Winnipeg Free Press. "From our perspective, the matter is considered closed." Still, Lev Makievsky is apparently seeking unspecified financial damages from Kane, who has 30 days to file a statement of defense. On the ice, Kane has picked up two goals and five assists in his last 10 games.
