Another week, another swollen media scrum talking to Evander Kane about something other than his scoring exploits.

Come to think of it, I can't remember the last time the Winnipeg Jets so-called sniper was actually talking about his sniping.

Kane's been colder than last week's potatoes, and just as dry.

But that's not why Jets head coach Paul Maurice handed him a seat in the press box in Toronto, Saturday, immediately transforming Hockey Night in Canada into the latest episode of A Star is Benched.

Inquiring minds immediately wanted to know why, and after initially playing coy, Maurice on Monday basically acknowledged No. 9 broke a team rule, which generally means he was late for something.

Whether it was for a team bus or a team breakfast doesn't really matter.

"The rules are the rules," as Maurice said.
