Tex Hollywood - November 9, 2022

Edmonton Oilers Evander Kane suffered a terrifying injury on the ice thanks to a skate to the wrist.

It reminds me why I hate skating, the whole rocking' blades on your feet is just so dangerous as a concept and even the pros who are in all the right equipment can get destroyed by them.

The injury happened in last night's away game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Kane and Lightning's Philippe Myers got caught, the Oiler fell to the ground and the skate of Lightning's Patrick Maroon accidentally cut across Kane’s exposed wrist.

Oilers said: "After suffering a wrist injury early in the second period, Evander Kane is stable and has been transported to hospital for a procedure later this evening."

GM Ken Holland said: "He has a deep cut on his wrist. He was stabilized and has gone to the hospital. Kane will have surgery on his wrist. He will be OK."

Embedded below is the gory injury, it's bad.

Evander Kane released a statement on twitter that read:

"Thank you all for the kind wishes and prayers from over the past several hours. Obviously last night was an extremely scary moment for me and I'm still in a little bit of shock. I would like to thank the entire training staff of the Edmonton Oilers and Tampa Bay Lightning, along with all the doctors and paramedics who rushed to help treat and repair my injury. Without all of you I know things would've been much worse and I'm sincerely grateful. I won't be back next game, but I will be back and I look forward to being back on the ice playing the game I love alongside my teammates in front of our great fans."

Thankfully, he's ok and hopefully he has a speedy recovery and that the scar doesn't look like an Emo teen girl's after her suicide attempt.
