Evander Kane, a talented forward in the NHL, is known for his confidence and physical presence on the ice. Despite receiving interest from six different teams after being released from the San Jose Sharks, he ultimately chose to sign with the Edmonton Oilers.

In a recent interview, Kane explained that the opportunity to play alongside Connor McDavid, widely regarded as the top player in the league, was a major factor in his decision. He also saw the potential for playoff success and believed that his style of play would be a good fit for the team.

Kane's decision to join the Oilers is a testament to the winning culture fostered by coach Jay Woodcroft and general manager Ken Holland. Their ability to build a strong team has made Edmonton an attractive destination for players, even over other Canadian markets. With Kane's impressive abilities on the ice, his acquisition has proven to be a great move for the Oilers.

Kane's recent short documentary with Sportsnet:

«I had about 5 or 6 teams calling, I chose Edmonton for a reason. «

Reporter: why Edmonton?

«Uhh an opportunity to play with Connor, to experience playoff hockey, I thought with the way I play hockey I can bring exactly what they needed. And I think everybody was right».
