Winnipeg Jets power forward Evander Kane is listed as questionable with a lower-body injury for Monday’s game against the New York Rangers, the Winnipeg Sun reports.

Kane, 22, worked out off the ice on a stationary bike instead of practicing on Sunday, which isn’t a great sign.

It’s been a frustrating season so far for Kane, especially in November, as he only scored five points during that 12-game stretch. He’s already failed to record a point in 15 contests this season.

While his struggles are a problem, it doesn’t seem like head coach Claude Noel sees an obvious solution in his replacements.

“We’re trying to find personnel, more than anything,” said Noel. “We’ve got our 23 players and I don’t think there’s a lock on who can be on the power play. Whether you’ve got one unit, second unit, third unit, fourth unit, we need execution, we need puck recovery, we need winning battles and we need production. And we’re not getting it.

“It’s almost like an audition. Who wants this thing? I’ll just judge by who is playing well in the game. If guys are going good in the game, maybe they go. You’ve got to be ready to go.”

Well, that doesn’t sound very promising.
