The Winnipeg Jets have placed Evander Kane on the injured reserve after the star suffered with a deep cut to his hand, reports ESPN.
Kane's last appearance for the Jets came in their 4-2 defeat against Tampa Bay on January 7. It's not yet known as to how the forward injured his hand, however he did end his last game in a fight with Lightning defenceman Eric Brewer.
Kane will be a loss for the Jets after an extremely impressive season so far. The forward has 14 goals and 11 assists in his 38 games for the Jets, but could now be replaced by Carl Klingberg who has been recalled from the St. John's IceCaps.
Klingberg will be a loss to the IceCaps having already notched up 11 goals and seven assists this season.
However his attentions will now turn to the Jets who will be desperate for victory in their next clash. They take on the Edmonton Oilers and will be hoping to secure their third victory in a row.
