The three-time Stanley Cup Champion accidentally cut Kane’s wrist in the scrum for the puck. Kane knew immediately that he was in danger.

Kane got up to his feet and frankly skated over to the trainer. He had put his other hand on the cut in an attempt to stop the bleeding.

“He has a deep cut on his wrist,” Oilers GM Ken Holland said after the game. “He was stabilized and has gone to the hospital. Kane will have surgery on his wrist. He will be OK.”

At this time, there is no update on his condition. He had to be transported to a local hospital to get his wrist examined immediately.
