WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Jets think they've found suitable linemates to play with Evander Kane.

Now the star right-winger is confident he's done the same in his personal life.

Social media heated up late Thursday night with news Kane had popped the question to his longtime girlfriend, Ashley Chamberland, at Hy's Steakhouse. The news was uncovered when the bride-to-be's friend, Kirsten Jantunen, congratulated Chamberland and posted a photo of what is purportedly the engagement ring on her Instagram account.

"My best friend got engaged," Jantunen posted.

A short time later, Jantunen retweeted a tweet of congratulations from Hy's.
