Kane is being realistic about if he'll remain a Sabre

January 17, 2018

Buffalo, NY (WGR 550) - Evander Kane took five days off from hockey and he comes back knowing that he probably won’t be a Sabre when the season ends.

Kane is an unrestricted free agent and he’s realistic about his future, “It’s happened before and obviously I’m aware of my situation and things are probably going to happen with the position we’re in as a team, so I’m just taking it one day at a time and one game at a time.

Kane isn’t the type of person that sits awake worrying about being traded. He said, “I’m not holding my breath, that’s for sure, but I’m aware of the position I’m in with my contract and it’s part of the business and it’s not something I worry about or concern myself too much with.”

Kane knows there are scouts out there and he knows what they’re looking at, “I think every time you play a game, no matter what your situation, you’re always playing in front of the league, It’s your career, so for me, it doesn’t really change my mindset.”

I have to run catch a plane so check back later for more from today’s Sabres practice.
