Edmonton Oilers star Evander Kane will be forced to miss the next three-to-four months, as he recovers from a horrific injury. Kane suffered a cut to his wrist on Tuesday night against the Tampa Bay Lighting.

Kane fell to the ground during a scrum for the puck. His wrist was cut when Lighting player Patrick Maroon skated by.

Kane said that he is on the mend. It is not clear at this time if he had to undergo surgery to fix the injury or have stitches.

“Thank you all for the kind wishes and prayers from over the past several hours,” Kane said. “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 Lighting, 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.”

Before his injury against the Lighting, he had one shot and nine shifts in seven minutes and 53 seconds.
