It was just a matter of time today until it finally happened. It was quarter after two when the reports came through that Evander Kane has been traded to the San Jose Sharks

In return, Buffalo received a 2019 conditional 1st round pick, Dan O’Regan, and a 2020 4th round pick.

That pick also remains a 1st rounder if the Sharks win the Stanley Cup this season. The 2019 fourth round pick can be pushed off or a year and it becomes a third round pick in 2020.

“The bottom line is we had one legitimate offer for Evander.” -Jason Botterill

“I’m excited about his opportunity in San Jose and hopefully it allows him to get in they playoffs and go all the way to win a Stanley Cup so we can keep the first-round pick.” – Botterill

O’Regan is a 24-year-old forward who was playing in the AHL for the San Jose Barracuda. He is out of Boston University, where he played with Jack Eichel and Evan Rodrigues. This season, he has 25 points (seven goals, 18 assists) in 31 AHL games. 

In three partial seasons for Buffalo, Kane recorded at least 20 goals in all of them.

Kevin founded the site in 2008 and it has taken off ever since. He graduated from Buffalo State College with a bachelor's degree in journalism.
