Evander Kane LW WPG 3 Days

Kane assisted on all three Winnipeg goals in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Penguins.

Can't pin this one on 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.

Kane has been hot since returning to action on Jan. 10, netting three goals in his last four games alone.

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. His recent goal-scoring success is even more promising when considering that Kane still isn't 100 percent recovered from the lower body injury that kept him out of action for almost two weeks. If Kane continues to produce offensively, he may make a push for increased ice time going forward.

Kane potted a goal, attempted four shots and picked up two PIM in Tuesday's 8-2 win over the Panthers.

Though 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.

Though 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.

After sustaining a lower-body injury in late December, 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.

Kane scored his seventh goal of the season and collected four PIM in Sunday's loss to the Ducks.

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.

Coach Paul Maurice confirmed that Kane (lower body) would be activated from IR and suit up Saturday against the Kings, Ed Tait of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.

The Jets initially projected 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.

Kane (lower body) could be back in the lineup Saturday against the Kings, Shane Hnidy of TSN reports.

Though he remains listed on injured reserve, 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 getting their roster back to full strength, as injured blueliners Toby Enstrom and Mark Stuart were also able to skate Saturday.

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.

It's quite the change in fortune for 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.

Kane (lower body) was on the ice for Wednesday's practice, Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.

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.

Kane (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Monday.

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.
