Last week it was reported that the San Jose Sharks had three options with Evander Kane. Trade him, have him stay at home and pay him or put him on waivers.
With no team wanting to touch his salary cap hit even with the Sharks offering to retain salary on a Kane trade, the Sharks have ultimately put him on waivers to see if any team will pick him up.
If Kane clears waivers, he is expected to report to the San Jose Barracuda of the AHL. It is not known when Kane will be ready to play.
Kane, 30, is three seasons into a $49 million, seven-year contract. The Sharks will likely have him back with the club at some point and hope he plays well enough where a team will trade for him.
