At the Rink: Jets at Sharks

SAN JOSE -- The Winnipeg Jets will begin adjusting to life without injured forward Evander Kane on Saturday night when they face the San Jose Sharks at SAP Center (10 p.m. ET; SN360).

Kane will be sidelined for at least two weeks and probably longer, but coach Paul Maurice said Saturday he considered that "better news" than he expected.

Kane was injured Thursday night early in the first period of a 6-2 victory against the Arizona Coyotes in a knee-on-knee collision with linemate Mark Scheifele. He underwent tests on Friday.

"Evander's got a lower-body injury that's going to keep him out of the lineup for a period of time," Maurice said after the Jets' morning skate at SAP Center. "He's going to get reevaluated in two weeks and after that it will be on a week to week basis. There's a big area on how long it takes to heal these things up. To be quite honest with you, it's actually better news than I was expecting. I really was not hopeful yesterday. … So, better news, but he is going to be out of our lineup for the near future."

Weekes: Maple Leafs' Bernier under most pressure

NHL Network analyst Kevin Weekes joined NHL Live from Toronto to give his take on the goaltending around the League entering the first week of the season.

When asked which goalie faces the most pressure on a nightly basis, Weekes brought up Carey Price of the Montreal Canadiens and Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers, but he believes neither is under more duress than Jonathan Bernier of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

"The pressure [in Toronto] is immense. You can cut it with a knife," Weekes said. "[The Maple Leafs] don't defend very well. That was something that was their Achilles' heel last season, yielding north of 35 shots per game, very difficult for any goalie to be able to be successful, let alone to be a top-10 guy in save percentage (.923) the way Bernier was under that type of nightly duress from a shot standpoint.

Penguins top pick Kapanen returned to Finnish team

Kasperi Kapanen, the Pittsburgh Penguins first-round pick (No. 22) at the 2014 NHL Draft, was returned to his team in Finland on Thursday.

Kapanen, No. 39 on the Top 60 prospect ranking, will play for KalPa in Liiga, Finland's top professional league. He had seven goals and seven assists in 47 games last season with KalPa, and one of his linemates was his father, former NHL forward Sami Kapanen.

The Penguins also announced forward Beau Bennett has been placed on injured reserve. Bennett sustained a lower-body injury during practice Sept. 27 and the Penguins reported at the time he was expected to miss six weeks.

Quote of the Day

I first met him when I was 19 years old and he coached me for 13 consecutive years. I don't know how many athletes who have had that pleasure. Al Arbour was a man that left us not only feeling like champions, but left us with a lot of great memories that we can carry on through life.
