Report: Oilers' Kane won't play Wednesday due to bankruptcy trials
Kane is facing two bankruptcy trials in San Jose and is scheduled to appear in court for seven days over two weeks from Jan. 23 to Feb. 2, Daniel Kaplan of The Athletic reported Friday.
Edmonton plays twice during this period: Wednesday against the Blue Jackets and Saturday versus the Chicago Blackhawks.
Kane filed for bankruptcy with $26.8 million worth of debt in January 2021.
The 31-year-old has five goals and 13 points in 17 contests this season. He recently returned from a 31-game absence due to a laceration sustained Nov. 8 when his wrist was cut by a skate.
