Evander Kane: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Kane enters his fourth professional season with all the right kinds of momentum: 2012 saw No. 9 record his highest goals total so far in his young career with 30. He will likely be playing for a new contract and the 21-year old was able to finish the second half of last year injury-free after struggling with concussion symptoms in December and January. Though Kane has yet to fully realize his potential as a fourth-overall draft selection, the Vancouver native is trending in the right direction. Bump him up a few spots in keeper leagues, and his 53 penalty minutes make a nice bonus for those in leagues that reward sin bin points.
Kane posted 19 goals and 24 assists for 43 points for a solid sophomore campaign last season. His minus-12 rating in 2010-11 was similar to that of the majority of Jets players and will probably improve this season. Kane's conditioning and talent mean the sky is the limit for him this year. Expect Kane to top 20 goals and 50 points in 2011-12. He's worth drafting once the proven stars have been chosen.
Posting 14 goals and 12 assists for 26 points in 66 games in his rookie season, Kane began his NHL career with a solid showing despite being just 19 years old. Thrashers coach John Anderson did provide Kane with an opportunity to play on the teamís top two lines and thereís no reason not to expect the same in Year 2. Although Kane is still likely a year or two away from a true breakout performance, his size and talent are capable of delivering and there is no doubt he has star potential. He will continue to improve as the team in Atlanta gets stronger, and if he can get closer to a full 82-game season than the 66 he played as a rookie, we could see Kane reach 20 goals and 30-40 points as a second-year player.
The Thrashers drafted Kane with the first-round, fourth overall pick in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. Kane, who is still 17, registered 96 points in 61 games with the Vancouver Giants of the Western hockey league last season. He ranked second in goals overall with 48. Kane is a very talented young player who will make a definite impact in the NHL. It may not be this season due to his age and needs some seasoning, but with the Thrashers hurting for another offensive threat, he could be brought up mid to late season.
