Kane scored two goals in Tuesday's 7-6 overtime win over the Capitals.

EDGE Analysis

He also added seven shots, two PIM, a hit and a blocked shot to his ledger. Kane is on fire heading into the All-Star break, scoring 10 goals and 16 points through 11 games in January, but with the Sharks now off until Feb. 2, the team -- and anyone with fantasy shares in him -- has to hope the long layoff doesn't cool him down.

Kane scored twice Saturday in a 6-3 loss to the Lightning.

EDGE Analysis

Kane is on a real roll. He has six points, including three goals, on a three-game streak. And Kane has put up at least one point in 10 of his last 11 games (eight goals, nine assists). He's a strong fantasy play heading into the second half, especially on a strong Sharks squad.

Kane tallied two more goals, three points and seven shots on net in a 7-2 victory against the Oilers on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

The goals and points are really coming easy to Kane at the moment. He's on a six-game point streak, and during that stretch, Kane has posted five goals and nine points with a plus-8 rating. There's nothing to suggest Kane is going to slow down any time soon either. He has 16 goals and 33 points in 45 contests.

Kane scored a pair of goals, including one on the power play, in a 5-2 victory against the Lightning on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

It was his third power-play goal of the season, which matches his total from last season. Through the first half of 2018-19, Kane is hitting his marks in just about every category and is exceeding expectations in the PIM department. He has 14 goals and 29 points with a minus-6 rating and 147 shots on net in 43 games. Last season with the Sabres and Sharks, he posted 29 goals, 54 points, a minus-9 rating and 307 shots on net. But Kane already has 79 PIM this season. That's three minutes shy of his 2017-18 total; his career high is 113 PIM.

Kane delivered two assists to go along with 12 PIM in Monday's 8-5 road loss to the Flames.

EDGE Analysis

Kane set up Joonas Donskoi on back-to-back Sharks goals between the second and third period, and he'd wind up with a game misconduct penalty after watching Sam Bennett impose a high hit on rookie defenseman Radim Simek (undisclosed) in the final minute of the game. As an agitator himself, Kane is prone to delivering a copious amount of PIM, but it's the points that fantasy owners crave the most. He's up to 11 goals and 15 assists through 41 games and 18:17 of average ice time. While the B.C. native technically starts games in a bottom-six capacity, the Sharks depend on him on both the power play and penalty kill, so he ends up with plenty of rink run -- at least when he's not toiling in the penalty box.

Kane amassed a power-play goal, an even-strength assist, four PIM, five hits and five blocked shots in Sunday's 7-3 road win over the Blackhawks.

EDGE Analysis

Kane certainly made his presence felt in this commanding victory at the United Center. Aside from back-to-back goals against interconference foes Dallas and Arizona last week, the abrasive but talented winger otherwise hadn't produced any offense in seven December games leading up to the action Sunday. Inconsistency has been a real problem for Kane in his 10th NHL season, so we'll have to see if he can build upon this two-point effort in Tuesday's clash facing host Minnesota.

Kane accrued 26 penalty minutes and was ejected in Saturday's 6-0 loss to the Golden Knights.

EDGE Analysis

During the second period, Kane committed a low hit on Tomas Nosek, and a whopping five penalties were assessed to the Sharks winger in the ensuing moments. In all, he picked up high-sticking, roughing and tripping minors in addition to a 10-minute penalty for abuse of officials and a game misconduct call that led to his ejection. This was a frustrating night all-around for the Sharks, with head coach Peter DeBoer even getting the boot, and their actions are sure to be reviewed by the NHL's Department of Player Safety to determine if supplemental discipline is required.

Kane scored a goal and assisted on another in a 3-1 win over the Flames on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Kane scored his sixth goal of the season in the first minute of Sunday's contest. The 27-year-old had been struggling of late, notching just a single point in his last seven games but despite the slow down in production, Kane has still managed 13 points in 18 games.

Kane won't miss any time after getting hit in the face with a puck, although he did require some stitches, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fantasy owners can breathe a sigh of relief knowing Kane won't miss any time with what could have been a much more serious injury. The winger is bogged down in a 10-game goal drought, in addition to having been held without a point in four straight games. Despite his lack of production, the 27-year-old should continue to log heavy minutes (18:09 per game), including time on the power play (2:08).

Kane was named as the target in a civil lawsuit for an incident that allegedly occurred in June of 2018, Jon Becker of The Mercury News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kane denied the allegations with his lawyer stating, "We firmly believe that this lawsuit is baseless both factually and legally." The league will likely monitor the situation to determine if it warrants a breach of the code of conduct.
