Evander Kane Signs Pro Deal
The Thrashers have signed Evander Kane to his first pro contract, which shouldn’t surprise anyone given that there has been talk that he might make the team out of training camp. Tavares, Hedman and Duchene (the top three picks) have all signed with their teams, making Kane the fourth of the top four picks to do so.
If you saw Kane at prospect camp, what did you think? Can he play in the NHL this season? If so, what should his role be?
Kane has nine NHL games at most to show that he can handle the NHL game. Otherwise he goes back to Vancouver to play for the WHL’s Giants. The AHL isn’t an option for an 18-year-old (he turns 18 on Aug. 2) junior player.
