Jets forward Evander Kane, who suffered an apparent knee injury in his team's season opener, will be out of the lineup for at least two weeks, the Winnipeg Sun quoted coach Paul Maurice as saying Saturday.

Kane was hurt in the first period of Thursday's 6-2 win at Arizona when he collided with teammate Mark Schiefele. Kane left the game and did not return.

Maurice and the team are officially calling it a lower-body injury.

Kane, 23, had 19 goals and 41 points in 63 games last season.

The Jets are in San Jose to play the Sharks on Saturday night.
