Winnipeg Jet Evander Kane was helped off the ice after being injured during practice on Wednesday.

Kane, the team’s star forward, was injured during a skating drill at the MTS Iceplex when he and fellow player Anthony Peluso became entangled along the boards. Kane went down and quickly rolled over, grabbing his right leg.

Kane then limped off the ice with help from his teammates.

After the practice head coach Claude Noel said the injury was a “tweak.”

“He’ll get assessed sometime today providing we can get him looked at,” said Noel. “We’ll go from there. Day-to-day right now. We just need further information.”

The team will face off against the St. Louis Blues on Friday night on home ice at the MTS Centre.
