Evander Kane is back in Winnipeg and ready to get going.
The 21-year-old left-winger made waves during the lockout with an underwhelming performance in the KHL and a Twitter picture of him holding stacks of money in Las Vegas, but it's all water under the bridge for the Vancouver native. He skated at MTS Centre on Saturday afternoon and then met with the media afterwards, joking around about Andrew Ladd’s Internet skills, his own new haircut and how he can’t wait to spend some of his fat, new contract.
“It feels great to be back,” he said. “It’s about time. It’s been a long time since I’ve been in this room. I’m looking forward to getting back playing.”
