  • Oilers' Evander Kane: Not expected to play Wednesday

    Kane (personal) is not expected to be in the lineup Wednesday against Columbus, Jason Gregor of reports.

  • Oilers' Evander Kane: No points but strong play Tuesday

    Kane recorded a team-high seven shots and five hits in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Kraken.

    Kane was expected to miss upwards of three months after a gruesome wrist injury sustained Nov. 8. He got back in the lineup much faster than that, and he was up to his usual type of performance -- sans points -- in his return. The 31-year-old should be a big boost for the Oilers going forward. He's at five goals, eight assists, 57 shots on net, 56 hits, 16 PIM and a plus-3 rating through 15 contests this season.

  • Oilers' Evander Kane: Activated from LTIR

    Kane (wrist) was activated from long-term injured reserve Tuesday.

    Kane, who has been out since Nov. 8, will return to the lineup Tuesday against Seattle. In corresponding moves, the Oilers placed both Kailer Yamamoto (undisclosed) and Ryan Murray (back) on LTIR. Kane has generated five goals and 13 points in 14 games this season. It probably won't be long before he is back in the top-six forward group, but he skated alongside Ryan McLeod and Warren Foegele during Monday's practice.

  • Oilers' Evander Kane: Game-time call

    Kane (wrist) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's matchup with Seattle, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports.

    The Oilers have already placed Kailer Yamamoto (undisclosed) on long-term injured reserve to open up enough cap space for Kane to be activated prior to puck drop versus the Kraken, but Kane's status against Seattle evidently won't be confirmed until Edmonton takes the ice for pregame warmups. The 31-year-old winger racked up five goals and 13 points through 14 games before missing over two months of action with a wrist injury.

  • Oilers' Evander Kane: Closing in on return

    Kane (wrist) will be evaluated Monday and might return to the lineup as soon as Tuesday's contest against Seattle, per Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic.

    Even if Kane, who hasn't played since Nov. 8, doesn't return Tuesday, it's believed that he'll be back in the lineup in the near future. He has five goals and 13 points in 14 contests this season. When he is ready to play, Kane is expected to resume serving in a top-six role.

  • Oilers' Evander Kane: Resumes skating

    Kane (wrist) skated on his own Saturday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

    Kane was stickhandling with only one hand as he underwent surgery three weeks ago when he was cut across his wrist by the skate of Philippe Myers. Kane is still expected to be out of action for another 2-3 months, but this is a good first step for the talented winger, who has five goals, 13 points and 50 shots on goal in 14 games this campaign.

  • Oilers' Evander Kane: Will miss 3-4 months

    Kane (wrist) was put on the long-term injured reserve list Wednesday and is expected to miss 3-4 months.

    Kane left Tuesday's 3-2 win against Tampa Bay after suffering a cut to his wrist. He was stabilized and transported to a hospital to undergo a procedure. Kane is a key part of the Oilers' forward core, contributing five goals and 13 points in 14 games before the injury. Warren Foegele might get a chance to play regularly in the top six while Kane is out.

  • Oilers' Evander Kane: Officially out Thursday

    Kane (wrist) posted on social media that he wouldn't be available against Carolina on Thursday without offering a specific recovery timeline.

    Kane is currently mired in a four-game goal drought that will have to last a little longer while he recovers from his wrist procedure. With the veteran winger unavailable, Warren Foegele could be in line for a spot in the top six, though Kailer Yamamoto also figures to be in contention.

  • Oilers' Evander Kane: Undergoing procedure

    Kane will undergo a procedure on his injured wrist Tuesday.

    After leaving the ice following a cut to his wrist, Kane was stabilized and transported to a Tampa area hospital to prepare for surgery. He is expected to make a full recovery, but a timeline for his return to action will likely be established following evaluation after the surgery.

  • Oilers' Evander Kane: Cut on wrist Tuesday

    Kane sustained a cut to his wrist in the second period of Tuesday's game versus the Lightning, Erik Erlendsson of reports.

    Kane was knocked over by Philippe Myers before Patrick Maroon inadvertently stepped on the Oilers winger's wrist. Kane immediately left the ice bleeding, and it's safe to assume he won't be back in the contest after suffering such a potentially serious injury. If he is forced to miss any additional games, the Oilers will have to either put someone on long-term injured reserve or ride with seven defensemen and 11 forwards while Kane heals.

    Kane notched an assist and three hits in Monday's 5-4 loss to the Capitals.

  • Oilers' Evander Kane: Chips in with helper

    Kane posted an assist, two shots on goal, two hits and two PIM in Saturday's 6-2 loss to the Stars.

    Kane made a solid play to help out on Darnell Nurse's third-period tally. Just seven seconds later, Kane took a penalty that led to the Stars quickly responding. The winger hasn't recorded a power-play point in his last 10 games, though he's remained productive in a top-six role. He's at five goals, seven assists, 48 shots on net, 47 hits, 16 PIM and a plus-4 rating through 12 outings this season.

  • Oilers' Evander Kane: Rings up fifth hat trick

    Kane scored three goals on eight shots, added two hits and went plus-2 in Tuesday's 7-4 win over the Predators.

    Kane scored twice in the first period and added an empty-netter in the third for his fifth regular-season hat trick. The 31-year-old winger has shown more playmaking than finishing early in 2022-23, but he's now at five goals, six assists, 42 shots, 14 PIM and 41 hits through 10 contests. Leon Draisaitl assisted on all of Kane's goals as the two star forwards continue to show chemistry on the second line.

  • Oilers' Evander Kane: Provides pair of assists

For the season, the 31-year-old winger has two goals, six helpers, 33 shots on net, 35 hits, 14 PIM and a plus-3 rating. He's never reliably been a point-per-game threat, but playing in the Oilers' top six could make him one this year.
