Kane snapped a 14-game goal drought with his 17th in Saturday's 4-2 win over Boston.

EDGE Analysis

Kane only had a single assist in those 14 games. He's on the trade block, but that drought may have given many team pause given the asking price. Kane will move at the deadline or before, but may not until the big shoe that is Max Pacioretty drops. His destination will determine his value, but it should create an uptick -- he'll head to a contender and be expected to be in the top-six.

Kane has only one point, an assist, in his last nine games.

EDGE Analysis

Before this dry spell Kane was enjoying a fine season. He had 16 goals through 40 games, which put him on pace for a career-high number of goals. However, this dearth of scoring has changed that, and also has to be concerning to his fantasy owners. His 8.4 shooting percentage is well within expectations based on his career numbers, so you can't count on Kane turning it around either.

Kane scored his 16th goal in his 40th game of the season Thursday against Minnesota.

EDGE Analysis

The Sabres lost 6-2 and sit dead last in the Eastern Conference, but Kane is having the best season of his career. He is on pace to score 30 goals and 70 points, and currently ranks fourth in shots with 165 and 26th in hits among forwards with 84. He has been Buffalo's most consistently productive player all season. Two big reasons for his success: Kane has not missed a single game this season and he's getting a lot of time on the power play, getting a chance to play on the first unit and averaging almost three minutes per game. He already has eight power-play points this season, matching last year's total, and hes' never scored more than nine in a season.

Kane generated both a goal and an assist Friday, contributing to a 4-2 home win over the Flyers.

EDGE Analysis

Just how hungry was Kane for his 15th goal of the season? Well, recording a game-high seven shots paints that picture. It gets even better when you consider Kane needs to dish for just two more scores for his first 20-assist campaign with the Sabres. Of course, it could also be his last, as Kane will be able to test the open market as an unrestricted free agent this summer.

Kane recorded three assists and four shots through 20:43 of ice time (2:37 with the man advantage) during Friday's 5-4 overtime loss to Carolina.

EDGE Analysis

The polarizing winger is well on his way to shattering all his previous career-high offensive marks this season and is already up to 14 goals, 17 assists and 138 shots through 33 games. Talent has never been in question with Kane, so with an excellent start in the bank, he can withstand a scoring slump without significantly hurting his year-long numbers.

Kane was skating on the third line with Evan Rodrigues and Sam Reinhart on Tuesday, John Vogl of The Buffalo News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Head coach Phil Housley keeps shuffling the lines, but the results remain the same; the Sabres are one of the worst teams in the league yet again, and have shown no real signs of improvement. Kane has been one of the team's few bright spots, and in an effort to spark the team and provide more balanced scoring, Kane will not be playing with his usual center, Jack Eichel. No matter which line Kane plays on, he'll get his minutes, so fantasy owners shouldn't worry about this "demotion." The Sabre have a soft schedule coming up with dates against the Sens, Flyers and Hurricanes.

Kane picked up a secondary assist in Saturday's 5-1 road loss to the Penguins.

EDGE Analysis

An agitating scoring winger, Kane has been the subject of trade rumors since he's currently playing for the bottom dwellers of the entire league and will be an unrestricted free agent this summer. Likely motivated by the prospect of bigger paychecks with a new team, the B.C. native has flourished to the tune of 12 goals and 11 assists through 26 games. This could be a good sell-high opportunity in case he eventually finds himself with a contender and sees a subsequent dip in ice time compared to the 20-minutes and change he's been averaging in Buffalo.

Kane grabbed a pair of assists in Friday's 3-1 win over the Oilers.

EDGE Analysis

Kane now has a four-game point streak, tallying five points in the process. Even better, the 26-year-old has scored 23 points in as many games this season. At this point, it looks like Kane will blow away his previous career high of 57 points.

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.
