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

I've got a lot of experience and there's a lot of young guys. It's even making me excited a little more. It's kind of a new life. At my age, I feel like I know a lot of things what to do, but I just cannot do it anymore. It's a lot easier to tell them what to do because they've still got the legs and hands to do it. I just know things, but I cannot do them anymore.
