Evander Kane Out Until After Olympics For Winnipeg

Evander Kane

The red-hot Winnipeg Jets suffered a big blow on Tuesday, as head coach Paul Maurice announced Evander Kane would be held out until after the Olympic break with a hand infection.

According to the Winnipeg Free Press, Kane’s hand “ballooned up” on Monday night and was being treated today.

The Jets, winners in six of their last seven, have six more contests remaining until the Olympic break — a pair of home dates against Nashville and Vancouver, followed by a four-game road swing through Montreal, Carolina, Washington and St. Louis.
