Evander Kane has been released by KHL team Dynamo Minsk after a disappointing stint in the KHL.
Kane had just one goal and no assists in 12 games and was a minus 8 with 47 penalty minutes.
The 21-year-old Winnipeg Jets winger signed a new six-year contract worth $31.5 million on the eve of the CBA’s expiration.
Once the lockout began, Kane elected to sign in the KHL but the experience was a flop. He arrived and was immediately chastised by the club for being, in their view, out of shape.
Next he was suspended for a game and couldn’t get on the scoreboard. Kane’s agent Craig Oster could not be reached for comment and the Winnipeg Jets also had no comment as per the NHL’s lockout rules.
