Jets place Kane on IR, call up Klingberg

The Winnipeg Jets on Thursday placed forward Evander Kane on injured reserve retroactive to Jan. 7.

Kane has missed the past two games with a hand injury sustained Jan. 7 against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

His 14 goals are third on the team and he has 25 points in 38 games.

To take his place, the Jets recalled forward Carl Klingberg from the St. John's IceCaps of the American Hockey League.

Klingberg, 22, has 11 goals and seven assists in 33 AHL games. A 2009 second-round pick (No. 34) of the Atlanta Thrashers, Klingberg last played in the NHL in 2011-12 when he had seven shots on goal and four penalty minutes in six games.

Quote of the Day

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
