Winnipeg forward Evander Kane underwent successful surgery on his left foot today to remove pressure from a nerve, the club announced today.

Kane’s recovery period is expected to be 4-6 weeks, meaning he should be ready to go for training camp.

It was previously reported Kane would not require offseason surgery for the nerve issue in his foot. He also had a problem with his wrist.

The 21-year-old had 33 points in 48 games in 2013.

    What if he doesn’t do anything for that 4-6 weeks and become Dustin Byfuglien-esque in terms of size
