Evander Kane LW WPG 6 Months

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.

But it's a great opportunity for me to finish the season strong and get into the playoffs." He has 15 goals, 29 points and 50 penalty minutes, so his presence in the lineup will give the Jets a jolt up front. Get ready to activate him for next week.
