Another classy move by Evander Kane revealed during his recovery




Evander Kane is putting up an impressive record during his recovery from his severe wrist injury. Last week, details emerged on a holiday shopping spree to 100 high school students hosted by Kane, who was looking to give back to the community during the holiday season.

The Oilers and the forward himself revealed how Kane offered each student one of his Oilers’ t-shirt along with 250$ to spend on something for themselves. When he found out that two students used the money to buy groceries for their household, Kane gave each of them an extra $250 to get a present for themselves and a signed jersey as keepsake.

On Thursday night, Kane shared another feel good moment he offered a special fan. Prior to the Oilers’ game against the visiting St. Louis Blues, Kane met Cecily who is raising money to help kids like her who battle cancer.

“It was a pleasure to meet a truly inspiring young lady in Cecily who is raising money to help kids like her. She hand makes cute little stuffed animals and special patches to help raise funds. We’re all rooting for you.”

It’s great to see Kane, who signed a four-year contract extension in Edmonton this summer, totaling $20.5 million, getting involved in the community.

This is also probably an opportunity for Kane to focus on something else than his intense recovery from a severely cut wrist. Before he was injured and placed on the long-term injured reserve, Kane had put 13 points in 14 games this season.
