Controversy Emerges Regarding Evander Kane Playing in Tonight's Game

The Edmonton Oilers are 3 games deep in 1st round series against the Los Angeles Kings.

Playoff hockey is notoriously cut-throat on and off the ice, as players, coaches, and officials are operating with intensity during the post-season.

Is Evander Kane a casualty of game 3?




Evander Kane was not on the ice for the morning skate, according to Tony Brar.

During the post-game interview on the 21st it didn't appear that Kane was struggling with an injury, nor was the media notified if he had an issue after the fact.


If it appears that Kane will not be able to slot in, Devin Shore will come in as a depth option in his place.

Update:


It looks like Jay Woodcroft updated us on the status of Evander Kane as he took the morning skate off, as a "Maintenance Morning". For now it appears that Kane will play unless otherwise noted by the team.
