Hospital officials in Tampa were listing Edmonton Oilers winger Evander Kane in stable condition after undergoing surgery to repair damage to his left wrist. Kane’s wrist was slashed by the skate blade of Tampa Bay Lightning forward Pat Maroon during Tuesday’s game between the two teams.

In a puck battle along the boards not far from the benches, Maroon wound up accidentally stepping on Kane’s wrist, cutting him open. Bleeding profusely, Kane jumped to his feet and was screaming for help as he was racing toward the Edmonton bench.

Kane Requiring Surgery

Oilers GM Ken Holland was later telling reporters that while Kane was requiring surgery, the prognosis was that he was going to be okay.

It’s unknown at this time how long the injury will be keeping Kane out of the lineup.
