Dynamo Minsk releases Evander Kane

  • Print

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 contact 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. The Winnipeg Jets had no comment as per the NHL’s lockout rules. But the Free Press did reach Kane’s agent Craig Oster on Friday afternoon.

"I’ve spoken to Evander and he just found the hockey to be different. The style to be different, the training to be different. I think the coaching was a challenge at times," said Oster. "This arrangement didn’t have a set time limit. It was a month to month deal. For both sides it felt like it had run its course."
