Evander Kane Relinquished by Sharks, New Agent of Kane Responds

The San Jose Sharks booked striker Evander Kane on an exemption on Sunday. Hopefully a team will fulfill his contract and the Sharks can continue without players. If that doesn’t happen, Kane will be assigned to the AHL’s Barracudas.

There were reports early Sunday that Kane could be demoted later that day. He’s close to serving a 21-match suspension for violating the NHL’s Covid Protocol, but the Sharks aren’t interested in letting him rejoin their roster because of all the bad decisions Kane has made out in the past few months and as teammates did. public about being unwelcome, should he go back.

With a $7 million cap hit for two additional seasons after this one, the Sharks are keen to move on and free up space. Unfortunately, it’s unlikely that a trade will be an option, at least not without the Sharks withholding 50% of Kane’s salary. There are few teams, if any, interested in the player at his current price point.

Kane’s rep from the Dan Milstein hockey team tweeted on Sunday:

“Statement: Over the past few weeks, we have discussed Evander’s return to San Jose. We’re not surprised by the Sharks’ decision to put him on an exemption, and if he’s clear, he’ll report it to Barracudas. Evander is looking forward to continuing his NHL career this season. ”

Milstein was recently hired by Kane to reach out to the teams and try to convince him he deserves the chance. If he does remove the waiver, which he likely will, Kane’s first step would be to go to the AHL and report without fuss to make sure the GMs know he’s serious and restore his image. me. Once he has proven that he is no longer a liability more than an asset, there will likely be some call-in, especially since Kane remains an effective goalscorer at the level. NHL.

Among the rumored teams are the Vancouver Canucks.
