Evander Kane hasn’t exactly had the greatest start to his KHL sojourn.

Just look at his stats with Dinamo Minsk so far: zero goals, zero assists, 14 penalty minutes and a -3 rating in three games.

Kane’s struggles aren’t lost on the team’s coaching staff, either, as Pavel Lysenkov reports.

It hasn’t been an offseason of great signs for the Winnipeg Jets franchise.

To review: three of the Jets’ most important players are experiencing growing pains (to be generous). If there’s a silver lining to the lockout, it’s that they have some time to work out the kinks.
