Winnipeg Jets leave it late, agree to new contract with forward Evander Kane

WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Jets agreed to a new contract with star forward Evander Kane on Saturday night.

The club issued a statement, which did not release details of the deal with the restricted free agent, 30 minutes prior to the NHL's collective bargaining agreement expiring at midnight Eastern time.

Kane, 20, played in 74 games with the Jets last season, recording 57 points (30-27) and 53 penalty minutes.

The Vancouver native has played in 213 career NHL games with Atlanta and Winnipeg, collecting 126 points (63-63) and 183 penalty minutes.

Kane was originally drafted by Atlanta in the first round, fourth overall, in the 2009 NHL draft.

Quote of the Day

I watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there. After I watched the tapes, I respect him a lot more because he turned the series around. He was the guy. In that time, he was the best in the world. It’s a big honor for me to tie him.
