VANCOUVER -- Winnipeg Jets forward Evander Kane was a surprise late scratch against the Vancouver Canucks at Rogers Arena on Tuesday.

Kane, who is from Vancouver and played his junior hockey locally, talked excitedly about playing in his hometown Tuesday morning. Coach Paul Maurice did not mention Kane in his meeting with the media two hours before opening faceoff.

The 23-year-old left wing has 10 goals and 22 points in 37 games this season, but is minus-7 and hasn't scored a point in his past three games.
