SAN JOSE, Calif. — Jets’ left-winger Evander Kane will be out at least two weeks, head coach Paul Maurice said this morning.

And it’s likely to be longer than that, by the sounds of it after the team’s morning skate at SAP Center ahead of tonight’s game against the San Jose Sharks (Sportsnet 360, TSN1290, 9 p.m. CT).

“Evander’s got a lower-body injury that’s going to keep him out of the lineup for a period of time,” Maurice announced. “He’s going to get re-evaluated for two weeks and after that it’ll be on a week-to-week basis.

SAN JOSE, Calif. — Jets’ left-winger Evander Kane will be out at least two weeks, head coach Paul Maurice said this morning.

And it’s likely to be longer than that, by the sounds of it after the team’s morning skate at SAP Center ahead of tonight’s game against the San Jose Sharks (Sportsnet 360, TSN1290, 9 p.m. CT).

"Evander’s got a lower-body injury that’s going to keep him out of the lineup for a period of time," Maurice announced. "He’s going to get re-evaluated for two weeks and after that it’ll be on a week-to-week basis.

"There’s a big area on how long it teams to heal these things up. So to be quite honest with you it was better news than I was expecting. I really was not hopeful yesterday and that’s why it’s good you don’t say anything about it. So better news but he is going to be out of our lineup for the near future."

Of course the team had high concern about this injury, given Kane’s introduction to what appeared — or still appears — to be a full-time line with centre Mark Scheifele and right-winger Blake Wheeler.

"You don’t know until it gets looked at," Maurice said. "There’s always concern with any significant injury that you don’t know how long it’s going to be. I think we were all a little bit uptight about that one and took it as good news.

"You wanted more than two minutes of ictime to get a feel for your lineup so that didn’t help. But we have some things that have stayed together. Byfuglien spent time with Scheifele and Wheeler and I think they like playing with each other. They’ve had some success. and regardless who was playing on the (Mathieu) Perreault line, it was going to be a new line."

Kane collided knee-on-knee with Scheifele at the offensive blueline in the third minute of Thursday’s game in Glendale, Ariz. He tried one more shift on the power play shortly after being helped off but couldn’t continue.

The Jets and Sharks both won their openers on the road.

Last season, Winnipeg played three tight games against San Jose, winning twice, including once by shootout.

"They’re a top-end team and that brings the best out in you in terms of preparation," Jets right-winger Chris Thorburn said this morning. "I think we were a team last year where consistency was an issue but it seemed like whenever we met a big opponent we were ready for the challenge. We either matched or exceeded the team we were going against.

"This year’s a little different mindset. Now we know we can compete with those teams. Now hopefully it’s us taking our game to them."
