WINNIPEG - Evander Kane’s right leg injury is not considered serious and there’s a chance he could play for the Winnipeg Jets Friday night at home against the St. Louis Blues.

The left-winger did not practice Thursday after injuring his leg and being helped off the ice during practice Wednesday, but Jets coach Claude Noel said the injury appears to be minor.

“Evander Kane is day-to-day and we’ll see how that shakes down for (Friday’s) game,” Noel said. “Potentially he is a player for Friday’s game. We’ll have to wait and see. We didn’t know (Wednesday) where it would be and we’ll know more (Friday). It turned out to be a day-to-day injury, not severe, let’s put it that way.”

Jets centres Bryan Little and Jim Slater also missed practice on Thursday, but Noel said they are both expected to play Friday.
