Oilers’ Kane taken to hospital with wrist severed by skate blade
Edmonton forward Evander Kane was taken to hospital Tuesday night after being cut by a skate blade in the left wrist early in the second period of the Oilers’ game against Tampa Bay.
Kane went down the ice when he tangled with Lightning defenseman Philippe Myers, then was cut off by Pat Maroon’s skate when the Tampa Bay forward moved into the area just inside of the Oilers defensive zone.
