There’s been a lot of ink written on Evander Kane as of late. Now we find out that he’s going to have shoulder surgery on Saturday and be out 4-6 months. That’s a bad break for the Jets.
Placing Evander Kane on long-term injured reserve does not prevent #NHLJets from a trade. Some believe he'll still be moved before March 2. — Chris Johnston (@reporterchris) February 6, 2015It also sounds like the Jets could have a bit of a mess in the locker room right now. I wouldn’t be shocked if Kane has played his last game in a Jets uniform.
Chris Johnston, Sports Net -- Earlier in the day, the 23-year-old winger is said to have had a run-in with teammates.This is getting interesting.
Kane wore a track suit when the Jets players gathered that morning for a meeting — a violation of team policy. Following a brief workout and stretch, Byfuglien is believed to have thrown those clothes into the shower to send a message to his teammate, according to sources.
That was the last the Winnipeg players saw of Kane until the team’s charter flight home.
Byfuglien spoke with reporters on Thursday before Sportsnet’s report surfaced and was asked how Kane’s absence from the game would affect his status inside the dressing room.
