It was a busy Sunday for Sabres winger Evander Kane, who scored in Buffalo’s afternoon win over Colorado, then took a private jet to Toronto for the NBA All-Star Game. It was the busy wee hours of Monday morning that might have done him in, though.
Sabres winger Evander Kane and Panthers defenseman Alex Petrovic dropped the gloves three times in Tuesday’s game. The two fought twice in the second period and once in the third.
According to a report from the Buffalo News, Buffalo Sabres winger Evander Kane is under investigation by the Buffalo police for an alleged “sex offense.” There’s not much more firm information than that at the moment. From the report:
Sabres winger Evander Kane, now out four to six weeks with a knee injury, says he asked for a trade every summer he was in Winnipeg.
Winnipeg's unworkable relationship with Evander Kane is over. The disgruntled winger, recently placed on season-ending IR, is heading to Buffalo, along with Zach Bogosian and a prospect. In return, the Sabres will send the Jets Tyler Myers, Drew Stafford, two prospects, and a first-round draft pick.
There's more to Evander Kane's healthy scratch last night than an inappropriately worn tracksuit. The kerfuffle involves a wet tracksuit.
Winnipeg Jets winger Evander Kane was a healthy scratch for Tuesday's road game against the Vancouver Canucks, and according to one report, the decision came over a tracksuit.
You can only be so in touch with hip hop when you play for the Winnipeg Jets. They used to be the Atlanta Thrashers. Winnipeg has a few hip-hoppists fewer than Atlanta. (No, the Thrashers didn't have Atlanta's leading hip-hoppists—Outcast, Wocker Flocker Flame, Ti—there to support them, but they did have Lil Jon.)
The noted cheap shot artist gets knocked out with one punch, and Evander Kane never has to buy a drink in Boston ever again.
