Jets' Kane tests recovering foot at development camp

  • Print

WINNIPEG — Winnipeg Jets left-winger Evander Kane is on the ice today for the first time since having surgery in mid-June on his foot to relieve pressure on a nerve.

It's the first day of the week-long Jets development camp and Kane is playing the role as guest coach to give his foot a mild trial.

"I think with my specific injury, it being a nerve problem, there’s not too much you can do for that," he said this afternoon. "Rest and not aggravating it, that’s the biggest thing."

Kane said he’s four weeks into the post-surgery rehab of an injury that should take "six to eight weeks" to get over.

"As long as I don’t feel any pain I can keep going but once I do, I’ll have to get off," he said.

The left-winger said he expects to be ready for September's training camp.

"Oh yeah. I don’t think that’s going to be a problem unless, as I said, there’s a setback," he said. "These are things you’re going to have to be patient with."
