Evander Kane’s agent denies yet another rumor claiming his client sought a trade, while Oilers defenseman Taylor Fedun hopes to come back from a season-ending leg injury.


Kane’s agent denies trade request rumor.

WINNIPEG SUN: Agent Craig Oster, who represents Jets winger Evander Kane, denied a rumor claiming his client had demanded a trade.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: Jets management had earlier denied the rumor. This isn’t the first time Oster or the Jets have had to deny rumors claiming Kane wanted out of Winnipeg. “Puck Daddy” Greg Wyshynski has a complete rundown dating back to last October. This goes back even further, to last summer, when Toronto radio personality Bob McCown claimed he had it on good authority several Jets players weren’t happy over the move from Atlanta to Winnipeg and wanted out. McCown didn’t name those players, but I recall Kane’s name was among those mentioned in the subsequent guessing-game over which players McCown was referring to. Some will say “where there’s smoke, there’s fire”, but I remind folks  bullshit also smokes when it is set on fire.

EDMONTON SUN: Oilers defenseman Taylor Fedun is hoping to get his career back on track this season after breaking his right femur in an exhibition game last fall, which ended his 2011-12 season.
