Evander Kane’s whirlwind day continued on Thursday night when the Winnipeg Jets forward was placed on the injured reserved with an undisclosed injury.
The move comes retroactive to Monday, making Kane unavailable for Winnipeg’s next two games. He would, however, be eligible to return on Tuesday against the Minnesota Wild.
Kane was a healthy scratch for the Jets game on Tuesday against the Vancouver Canucks. It was originally thought to be a coach’s decision but Sportsnet’s Chris Johnston reported earlier Tuesday that the reason was because Kane was late to the rink before the game.
In 37 games this season, the 23-year-old has 10 goals and 12 assists.
In a corresponding move, Winnipeg recalled forward Patrice Cormier from the AHL’s St. John’s IceCaps. It is the fourth time this season that Cormier has been called up by the Jets, but has yet to play in a game.
