Video: Evander Kane Slashes Ekman-Larsson In the Head

Evander Kane has been all over the headlines lately for all the wrong reasons and on Saturday night he was involved in a questionable play that may be getting looked at by the league. Kane and the San Jose Sharks were taking on the Arizona Coyotes, and Kane got tangled up behind the net with 'Yotes defenseman, Oliver Ekman-Larsson. 

Kane's stick was flying all over the place and sure enough he ended up slashing OEL right in the face and neck. Kane needs to have more control over his twig on this play and expect to see the Coyotes keep one in their memory bank.

Coyotes insider Craig Morgan reported after the game:

Coach Rick Tocchet didn't have an update on Ekman-Larsson's status following the contest. OEL was having a big game prior to getting driven into the boards by Kane behind the Coyotes net, tying his career high with three assists, one of which had come on the power play. Arizona's next game comes Monday in Vegas, and it wouldn't be a surprise if Ekman-Larsson isn't able to suit up.
