PHILADELPHIA, Penn. - The rumours Jets winger Evander Kane has demanded a trade are false, his agent says.
Twitter and the blogosphere got hot on Wednesday with talk Kane has become disenchanted with Winnipeg and coach Claude Noel.
The player's agent, Craig Oster, refuted such gossip.
"I’ve spoken with Evander and this is completely untrue," Oster said. "Neither he nor us have talked about a trade. Evander is very excited to be in Winnipeg and about his future with Winnipeg."
Kane has one goal and one assist but has recently found a home on a line with Alexander Burmistrov and Nik Antropov.
