The Buffalo Sabres lost forward Evander Kane if the very first game of their season

, and now 11 games later he's set to make his return to action.

The Sabres confirmed the new on Wednesday when they announced through their social media that Kane would be in the line up this evening when the Sabres take on the Ottawa Senators.

Kane has been the subject of trade rumors, specifically rumors that have him headed to Minnesota in a trade, and this will be his first chance to showcase his talents since his aforementioned injury.

Kane has fallen out of favor with the Sabres since his legal troubles, and that is likely the reason this wasn't a bigger announcement.
