Dater’s Daily: Evander Kane Chirps Ryan Reaves



Evander Kane

San Jose Sharks forward Evander Kane couldn’t resist talking some serious trash at Vegas Golden Knights forward Ryan Reaves, over the prospect of him being suspended for a match-penalty “intent to injure” action against Avalanche defenseman Ryan Graves in the third period of Colorado’s smackdown of the Golden Knights in Game 1..


We’ll see if Reaves responds, but I don’t think we’ll be officially hearing from the Golden Knights player in any official capacity for a while, after that gutless stunt tonight.

  • We will definitely see what the NHL DoPS is made of with this decision on Reaves. A lot of people think the league is afraid of Reaves. Let’s see what happens. Reaves has been suspended four times by the league since 2015, but nothing too recently and nothing for more than a couple of games.
  • Reaves and Kane, by the way, have a history with each other.
  • Vegas was still mad about Graves’ hit on Mattias Janmark that put him out of the game. Might have been a half-second too late, which is why Graves got the interference penalty. But Janmark was too busy admiring his pass and not keeping his head up. Totally clean hit otherwise. Shoulder to midsection. Vegas can dish it out, but can’t take it, is what they proved tonight.
