The Winnipeg Jets have placed forward Evander Kane on injured reserve as he recovers from what coach Paul Maurice calls a deep cut on his hand.

The move is retroactive to Jan. 7, when Kane last played in Winnipeg’s 4-2 loss to Tampa Bay at the MTS Centre. While it’s unknown how Kane injured his hand, he did end that game with a fight against Lightning defenceman Eric Brewer.
