NHL: Kane addition will help Oilers says Hyman

Forward Zach Hyman believes the addition of Evander Kane adds quality depth to the Edmonton Oilers which will help them in their pursuit of a Stanley Cup Playoff spot.

The Oilers, 30/1 to win the Stanley Cup in 2021/22, announced the signing of Kane on a one-year contract on Thursday and the 30-year-old made an instant impact scoring the first goal on his debut in a 7-2 win over the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday.

Kane impresses on debut

For Kane, it was his first NHL appearance of the season after his contract was bought out by the San Jose Sharks putting him on unconditional waivers.

29-year-old Hyman also scored twice against the Canadiens taking his season points tally to 24 (13 goals, 11 assists) in 34 games.

Hyman happy with roster depth

The victory over Montreal was Edmonton's fourth in a row, a welcome run which came after they went 0-5-2 between 29th December and 20th January. Their overall season record stands at 22-16-2 which ranks sixth in the Pacific Division.

Hyman said to the media: "I think you were able to see how spread out the lines were today and how we were able to get contributions from all four lines.

"I think that when you're able to roll four lines, it wears on teams and you're able to be fresh. And it's not fun to play against when you have a new set of guys who are just dangerous going out every shift. So [Kane] adds to that for sure."
