Evader Kane Staying In Edmonton


The Oilers have re-signed forward Evander Kane to a four-year contract with an average annual value of $5.125 million, the team announced Wednesday.

After signing a one-year contract with Edmonton on Jan. 27, Kane scored 22 goals and 39 points in 43 regular season games before burying 13 goals and 17 points in 15 playoff appearances.

The 30-year-old from Vancouver, B.C. has scored 286 goals and 545 points in 812 career regular season games, plus 19 goals and 30 points in 44 career playoff games.

“I want to win and I believe after signing this deal we will be able to add the right pieces, along with myself, to accomplish that goal, a championship,” Kane tweeted late Tuesday.
