TTM Success: Evander Kane
Evander Kane had an eventful 18 months. With the relocation of the Atlanta Thrashers to Winnipeg, Kane went from being a tiny fish in a big ocean, to a large fish in a small pond. From hockey being buried in the sports pages to being on the front page. While Kane set career highs in almost every category that matters, such as goals, 30, and points, 57, he made several headlines for the wrong reasons. First there was the accusation of Kane skipping out on restaurant bills. Then during the lock-out Kane tweeted a picture of him with stacks of cash, which rubbed some fans the wrong way. Kane tried to stay in shape by playing the KHL, but he was cut after earning as many suspensions, one, as points scored in 12 games. Hopefully, now that play has resumed in Winnipeg, Kane can get things focused back to his play on the ice. He has the talent to be the star of the franchise. Kane signed 2 of 2 and kept a copy of the Gordie Howe Hat Trick custom.
