Bob Boffner says he’s out of Sharks’ plans for Evander Kane

SAN JOSE – Will Evander Kane join the Sharks on his upcoming five-road trip, or not? Bob Boffner – as of Friday afternoon – said he had no idea.

Kane’s 21-game suspension officially ends after Sunday’s game in Chicago, and he will be eligible to play again when the Sharks face the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday. General Manager Doug Wilson and the organization, however, have not publicly clarified their plans for Kane and his possible return.

The Sharks will leave for Chicago on Saturday morning. After Tuesday, they play the New York Islanders on Thursday, the New York Rangers on Friday, and the Columbus Blue Jackets on Sunday.

“Management has to make a decision here in the next few days,” Bauner said, adding that the Sharks previously played for the Toronto Maple Leafs at the Sap Center. “We’re just focusing on Chicago tonight and Sunday and let the rest take care of themselves.”

Boffner said earlier this week that it would not be realistic for Kane to jump into NHL games, as he missed all training camp and the first six weeks of Sharks season.

Whether this could mean that Kane begins a conditioning assignment with Barracuda is unclear. The Sharks’ AHL affiliate is scheduled to start practice in San Jose early next week, before they play at Abbotsford on December 4.

According to the collective bargaining agreement of the NHL and the NHLPA, a player must consent if the club wants him to play with their minor league team to improve conditioning. No conditioning loan can last more than 14 days.

Boffner said he was kept away from information about what the Sharks’ plans are for Kane.

“The public wants to know and I’m sure fans want to know, and we understand that,” Boffner said. “But what I appreciated is that I didn’t get too involved in it. They let me do my job and in fact, I have treated the players like that.
