WINNIPEG - Forward Evander Kane could be returning to the Winnipeg Jets lineup soon.
He's been off for two weeks after hurting his knee in a collision with linemate Mark Scheifele, but coach Paul Maurice says he has progressed well and could be practising again soon, but with no contact initially.
The Jets (2-4-0) host the Tampa Bay Lightning (4-2-1) Friday night.
Kane was injured in Winnipeg's season opener and first win, 6-2 over the Arizona Coyotes.
They snapped a four-game losing streak with their second Tuesday night, 3-1 against the still winless Carolina Hurricanes.
The Jets are one of three teams in the NHL which have yet to score a power-play goal this season. The others are Minnesota and Buffalo.
