Kane recorded his 11th goal of the season in Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Hurricanes.

EDGE Analysis

Kane is having the best statistical season of his career, but that's probably small consolation for the competitive winger. His team continues to struggle at the bottom of the Atlantic. Kane has 19 points in 20 games and should be active in most formats.

Kane was shut out on the score sheet Saturday against the Habs.

EDGE Analysis

Kane scored two goals against the Caps and an assist against the Panthers before facing the Habs, the second game of a back-to-back. He still logged more than 21 minutes and five shots on goal, bringing his total to 82 shots, which ranks second in the league behind Max Pacioretty. When healthy, as he is now, Kane is a dynamic power forward; through 17 games, he's scored nine goals and 16 points, and averaging the most power-play time in his career. Trade rumors continue to swirl around Kane, however, but he'll be effective anywhere he goes. He's a must-own across most fantasy leagues, including ones that put an emphasis on goal scoring.

Kane scored twice in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Capitals.

EDGE Analysis

Kane put his team up 1-0 early in the middle frame and sealed the deal with an empty-netter in the final minute to bring his season goal total to nine. The 2009 fourth-overall pick set his career high of 57 points way back in 2011-12, but he's on pace to blow that performance out of the water with a point-per-game pace through 15 appearances.

Kane found the back of the net for the game-tying goal with just minutes remaining in the third period of a 5-4 overtime win against the Bruins on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Kane has given opposing goaltenders nightmares this season with six goals and 11 points already through nine games. For reference, it was in Kane had played 19 games last season before posting those same numbers. The nine-year NHL veteran will look to keep the momentum rolling against Detroit on Tuesday.

Kane scored a goal and added two power-play assists in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime loss to Vegas.

EDGE Analysis

With just seconds left in regulation, Kane took a baseball swing at a loose puck and found the back of the net to send the game to OT. The 26-year-old is off to a terrific start this year, scoring five goals and five assists in just seven games. He's already put 39 shots on net and has averaged 20:18 of ice time, with 3:20 of it coming with a man advantage. Look for Kane to take a run at his career-high of 57 points.

Kane struck twice for goals in a 6-2 loss on Monday at home to New Jersey

EDGE Analysis

Kane and Jack Eichel seem to be the only Sabres producing during the team's wretched start. Kane's two tallies were the only bright spots on Monday for Buffalo, and he needs to be owned in all formats by this point, despite his team's struggles.

Kane scored two shorthanded goals and added an even-strength assist Friday night in a 6-3 loss to the Islanders.

EDGE Analysis

Kane factored in all the Sabres' scores and was aggressive in the offensive zone. He now has two goals and two assists in his first two games, and he looks like a talented (and natural) fit beside Jack Eichel. Go get him. Now.

Kane picked up an assist, and also tallied 11 shots on net, in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Canadiens on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Kane has always been a prolific shooter of the puck. In his two years in Buffalo he has tallied 260 and 271 shots on net. However, he also played 70 and 65 games in those seasons, because he has also yet to play more than 74 games in a year.

Buffalo is still looking for a suitable trade partner for Kane, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kane is entering the final year of his contract and is coming off a solid season in which he tallied 43 points, 113 PIM, and 260 shots on goal. The defenseman also dished out 109 hits but his plus/minus rating leaves something to be desired (minus-17). While concerns about losing the 25-year-old for nothing at the end of the year are likely the primary motivation for shopping him, Kane's off-ice issues can't be overlooked as the Sabres fully embrace the Jack Eichel-era in Buffalo.

Vegas will not be able to acquire Kane via the expansion draft after being protected by the Sabres.

EDGE Analysis

Protecting Kane was a no-brainer, even if he may not stay in Buffalo for much longer. He's coming off one of the best seasons of his career, but his time in Buffalo has been mired by off-ice issues and various injuries that forced him to miss 12 games. When healthy, Kane is a bruising power forward with the ability to score 30-40 goals, but at times it feels as though he's not worth the constant headaches. His name has been a fixture in the rumor mill and the Sabres know he has a lot of trade value, so they won't risk losing him to Vegas for nothing. Wherever Kane lands, he will almost assuredly play a top-six role. He has one more year remaining on his contract before becoming an unrestricted free agent.
