We will have to wait another day to find out how long Evander Kane will be out with a foot injury. According to the team, Kane is scheduled to have a CT scan on his left foot on Tuesday.
I would be surprised if the latest test does not reveal a broken foot. He left the arena after last night’s game with a large walking boot (similar to the one Ilya Kovalchuk had earlier this season) and using crutches.
I’m no doctor, but I would imagine the location and the severity of the injury will determine how much time Kane misses.
He was having a decent rookie season with 25 points (14 goals, 11 assists).
This would be the third broken foot on the team this season with Kovalchuk and Mark Popovic all missed time with the injury. You could even add Boris Valabik’s broken ankle.
There is no Thrashers practice today after back-to-back weekend games. They are having video sessions in preparation for Tuesday’s game against Nashville.
