Oilers’ Evander Kane has cut his wrist in a bloody incident
Evander Kane was rushed off the ice after a skate cut his wrist during the Oilers’ game against the Lightning on Tuesday night in Tampa.
The Oilers forward fell to the ice after colliding with defenseman Tyler Myers in the second period. Tampa Bay forward Pat Maroon appeared to accidentally cut Kane’s wrist with his skate as the play unfolded.
Kane immediately grabbed his wrist and headed for the bench, leaving behind a pool of blood on the ice. Maroon called for help as Kane walked past the Lightning bench.
He was taken to the Amalie Arena locker room, where Sportsnet’s Gene Principe reported he heard someone calling “Help! Help! help!”
Oilers GM Ken Holland said via Principe that Kane was stabilized, taken to the hospital and will undergo surgery on his wrist.
“He’ll be fine. I don’t know how long he’ll be out, though,” an Oilers source he told the Athletic.
Kane had logged 7:53 of ice time on the night. On Tuesday, he had five goals and eight assists in 13 games.
