Most hardcore fans would probably agree that Evander Kane is a talented player, but is he a star? He might just answer that question in 2013-14.

The 22-year-old WInnipeg Jets winger was everywhere against the Los Angeles Kings in his 5-3 win on Friday. Just look at that stat line:

One goal, two assists for three points, nine penalty minutes, +3 rating, seven shots and five hits in less than 15 minutes of ice time.

That’s double-take material. Here’s video of the three goals he was involved in on Friday:

First period goal by Kane:

Devin Setoguchi deflected his shot, giving Kane a primary assist:

Again, Kane did much of the work here, creating havoc to help Setoguchi score on the wraparound:

Are we seeing the young stud make a big leap? Maybe so.

    No mention of the ever-so-popular unofficial stat?

    Kane scored a “Gordie Howe Hat Trick”

    For you newbies to hockey:
    Gordie Howe Hat Trick = Goal, Assist, and a Fight

    Surprised he wasn’t invited for the team Canada try outs.

      He’s trying to play his way onto the team

    1 goal, 2 assists is a “monster” game?

      and 9 PIMS, +3, 7 shots and 5 hits. Can you read?

    Points aren’t everything. Kane & Ladd bring everything they have, every game

    AHEM …

    With the exception of Drewzducks and Stiller43, it’s safe to assume that the rest of the posters above are ‘proud’ owners of the latest CD ‘boxed’ set of Liberace’s famous ’73 Vegas comeback tour ! PFFT say we to the ‘money flaunting’ leech known as Kane ! Yesterday was an ‘anomaly’ which won’t repeat. Besides, it’s a long season friends and there will be many bumps like this along the way, no two ways about it. But just wait and see what happens to these freaks when they show up in LA next time ! Oh man, they’ll be running back to Winnipeg so fast that even the perogies spewing out of their asses won’t have time to land ‘orderly’ on the ground !

    GO KINGS GO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
