Evander Kane could return ‘ahead of schedule’

The Sabres have rattled off five wins in their last seven games, but are the playoffs a legitimate possibility for Buffalo? ProHockeyTalk's Jason Brough and Mike Halford debate.

We learned yesterday that Sabres defenseman Zach Bogosian was “ready to go.” He’s expected to make his season debut tonight at home versus Dallas.

But Bogosian might not be the only key player that Buffalo is about to get back. Winger Evander Kane sounds just about ready to return from his knee injury, despite an original timeline that suggested he could be out until December.

“I feel like I could play today but they’re being cautious and I have to listen to them so hopefully we’ll be back on that trip,” Kane told The Buffalo News this morning.

The Sabres play Thursday in St. Louis and Saturday in Dallas.

“Yeah, he seems to be a bit ahead of schedule,” coach Dan Bylsma said of Kane.
