On Tuesday night, during the Edmonton Oilers’ game against the Tampa Bay Lighting, forward Evander Kane sustained a frightening injury.

After colliding with Lightning defenseman Philippe Meyers, Tampa Bay forward Pat Maroon’s skate cut Kane’s wrist. Kane quickly left the rink, leaving a bloody mess in his wake.

After receiving emergency care at the hospital, the 31-year-old was later described as being in “stable condition.”

Kane tweeted a status update on his recuperation on Wednesday.

Kane’s update says, “Thank you for the kind words and prayers over the past few hours.” “Obviously, I had a really scary experience last night, and I’m still a little shocked. I would like to express my gratitude to the entire medical and paramedic team that responded quickly to treat and mend my injury, as well as the training staffs of the Tampa Bay Lightning and Edmonton Oilers.

“I know things would have been much worse without all of you, and for that, I am truly grateful. Although I won’t be back for the next game, I will be back, and I can’t wait to get back on the ice with my teammates and play the game I love in front of our amazing supporters.

Since joining the Oilers last season, Kane has blended in well. This season, he has scored 13 points (5 goals and 8 assists) in 14 games.

According to NHL.com, Oilers forward Ryan Nugent-Hopkins stated, “I’m just happy that he’s OK.” It’s a scary situation, of course. I don’t want to get into too much detail, but it’s a frightening circumstance.

Captain of the Oilers Conor McDavid shared his thoughts on witnessing Kane receive the grizzly injury.

“He was running as fast as I’ve ever seen, and his eyes were the widest I’ve ever seen,” McDavid remarked. We all feel afraid for him because we can clearly sense how frightening it was and how scared he was. You obviously don’t want to witness this circumstance.

After the game, Pat Maroon, whose skate unintentionally cut Kane’s wrist, also gave it his all.
