Despite concerns for his health, veteran NHL forward Evander Kane shared his plans to use his no-move clause to block any trades that prevent his stay with the Edmonton Oilers.

The Edmonton Oilers have had their hands tied in dealing with veteran forward Evander Kane. After reports of causing issues with teammates at the bench and in the locker room, the former Shark has even had beef with Sportsnet reporter Mark Spector.
"In case you're wondering why Mark Spector is viciously attacking Kane's character recently:

Evander Kane laughed at Mark, didn't feed his narrative and put him in his place a couple of days ago for not even knowing that he was never on the Oilers Powerplay."

However, his biggest struggle this past season came on the ice. Evander Kane had suffered through a sports hernia the entire season, and could not play to his full potential in the 2024 Stanley Cup playoffs, even in the finals against the Florida Panthers.
