Concussion For Evander Kane

from Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun,

Add Evander Kane to the long list of high-profile NHL players currently on the sidelines with a concussion.

The Winnipeg Jets left-winger came to the Jets medical staff on Friday morning saying he had a headache and has since been diagnosed with a concussion, meaning he will miss Saturday’s pivotal game with the Florida Panthers (6:10 p.m., MTS Centre) and is likely going to be out until after the NHL All-star game.

Kane leads the Jets with 18 goals and is second in points with 31.

“He’s feeling better today, but we’re going to play it day-by-day and see how he’s doing,” said Jets head coach Claude Noel. “It’s part of the game and it’s another injury for me. You have to deal with people being in or out. How long it’s going to be, you don’t know.

“It’s a fairly grey area and you just don’t know what you’re dealing with, that’s the problem. Is it going to be a few days, is it going to be a few weeks, you don’t know.”
