Evander Kane LW WPG 2 Months

Kane scored the game-winning goal in the shootout in a 1-0 win over the Rangers on Saturday night.

It was a beauty of a shot that went high blocker and in. Henrik Lundqvist got a bit of it, but it was moving too fast. The Jets need him to start putting up points and this is a nice start.

Kane (knee) contributed no points and attempted three shots in his return to action Thursday against the Devils.

It was probably unrealistic for Kane to deliver immediately upon returning from an injury that knocked him out of action for two weeks, and the Jets were likely just happy that the forward made it through the contest without any setbacks. He saw 17:07 worth of ice time while skating on the second line with Blake Wheeler and Mark Scheifele.

Coach Paul Maurice said Kane (knee) is progressing well and could begin skating before the end of the week, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

The Jets likely won't have a definitive timetable on Kane until after he starts taking part in practices in some capacity, but an early- to mid-November return would seem realistic at this time. The winger was set to play a vital role for the Jets on the second line to open the season, before he suffered the knee injury after just 1:24 of action in the team's first game.

Kane (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

With Kane probably at least three weeks away from returning to game action, the Jets didn't want to get by with only 22 players until he was deemed ready to go. Look for the team to call up a forward from AHL St. John's prior to their next game, scheduled for Friday against the Predators.

Coach Paul Maurice said Saturday that Kane (knee) would be reevaluated after two weeks, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

The Jets were bracing for the worst after Kane took the brunt of a nasty collision with linemate Mark Scheifele in Thursday's opener, but Maurice sounded relieved by the prognosis. Even if he's cleared to resume skating in two weeks, Kane will probably need to get at least a couple of practices in before he returns to the lineup, so in total, it could be three weeks before he appears in a game, at minimum. The Jets will move Dustin Byfuglien from the third-line right wing spot to Kane's left-wing spot on the second line in the interim.

Coach Paul Maurice said he wouldn't consider Kane (knee) as day-to-day at this point, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

While the extent of Kane's injury remains unknown at this point, the fact that coach Paul Maurice state he "wouldn't list him as day-to-day" is a pretty good indication he may miss a significant amount of time due to the injury. Matt Halischuk is expected to enter the lineup in his place.

Kane suffered an apparent knee injury in Thursday's opener and there is concern over the severity, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.

Although the team hasn't released an update on Kane's official injury or severity, the indication seems to be that it might not be minor. He will likely undergo testing of some sort in the near future, and the team should provide an update on the issue.

Kane suffered a lower body injury in Thursday's game and will not return.

It's a tough start for Kane, who briefly returned to the ice before heading to the dressing room for good. The young winger should be considered day-to-day for now until the team releases more details on the nature of his injury.

Kane recorded a goal and an assist, to go with a plus-2 rating in Saturday's preseason win over Calgary.

The Jets' top line of Kane, Mark Scheifele and Blake Wheeler combined for four points on Saturday, helping the team finish the preseason with a 3-4-0 record. Kane, who produced a somewhat disappointing 19 goals and 41 points in 2013-14, has a prime opportunity to boost his offensive totals in 2014-15. His linemate Scheifele is on the rise and Kane is sure to get plenty of ice time on the top line and top power-play unit. The potential is there for Kane to break through and hit 60 points in 2014-15.

Though he was generally expected to play in Monday's exhibition against the Oilers, Kane ended up sitting out the contest.

It's not believed that Kane is dealing with any sort of injury, so perhaps the Jets just decided the winger could use a little more rest in advance of the regular season. He'll likely return to preseason action at some point this week, which should allow the coaching staff to determine where he fits best. He's expected to receive an audition with Mark Scheifele and Blake Wheeler on the top line, a combination that could help Kane unlock the 60-point potential that exists within him.
