There’s some big news out of San Jose and Sabres fans will be happy to hear that Evander Kane has reportedly inked a 7-year deal with the Sharks.

In February, the Sabres traded Kane to San Jose, for Daniel O’Regan, a conditional first-round pick in 2019, and a conditional fourth-round pick in 2020. With this signing, it confirms that Buffalo gets that first-round pick in 2019, as opposed to it being in the second round. They now have two first rounders in 2019.

In 61 games with Buffalo last year, Kane scored 20 goals and 20 assists for 40 points. In 17 regular season games with the Sharks, he scored nine goals and five assists for 14 points – that includes a four-goal game in March against the Calgary Flames.

He also added four goals and an assist in nine playoff games.

I founded Buffalo Hockey Central in 2008 and have poured hours and hours into this site. Luckily, we have a great team of writers and designers who have helped keep this up and running despite a ton of out-of-pocket costs. We do this because we enjoy it, and we're desperate to see the Sabres win the Cup someday, but they have to make the playoffs first.
