Edmonton Oilers working hard to resign star forward

The Edmonton Oilers are on the cusp of clinching the 2nd round of the NHL playoffs, currently sitting 3-1 in the best of 7 series against provincial rival Calgary Flames.

Evander Kane has been a big part of the Oilers success, contributing 39 points in 43 games in the regular season, and 15 points in 11 games in the playoffs so far this year.

Traded to the Oilers from San Jose, Kane is an unrestricted free-agent at the end of this season. While never having played a full-season, he is a solid contributor in points and energy on the ice, which has raised speculation Edmonton will try to sign him in the off-season.




NHL insider Darren Dreger has even reported Kane may receive a 3-year deal from Oilers GM Ken Holland. At 30 years old and given his injury history this is the sort of deal that could break the franchise, or set them up for consistency for the next few years.
