Evander Kane is a member of the Winnipeg Jets, for now at least.
He was asked about his future with the Jets in a Tuesday radio interview with Team 1040 in Vancouver and, and the 22-year-old winger didn’t sound fully committed to the Jets.
Hosts Matt Sekeres and Pete Schaad: Evander do you want to play for the Winnipeg Jets anymore?
Kane: Well, I think, uh, I’m a Winnipeg Jet right now and, um, you know there’s been speculation and rumors for the three years since I got there. You know, we’ll see what happens, and we’ll carry on as if I’m a Winnipeg Jet.
Sekeres and Schaad: There’s not a yes in there, and some Jets fans might say, “Why doesn’t he want to play for us?” or “Why isn’t he absolutely fully on board for playing for us?”
Kane: I’m training hard and getting ready for this season, and last summer I didn’t have a full year of training due to some surgery I had, so I found it really important for me to start training early and get in the best shape possible for this season
