The video for the suspension is at the bottom. This suspension means that the Winnipeg Jets probably need to recall a forward. Carl Klingberg may be the best choice as he has a high shot rate in the AHL. Another fair option is Eric O'Dell, whom the Winnipeg Jets know can play in a scoring role. The other option, and lets be honest the one the Jets will most likely use, will be to just play TJ Galiardi. Expect to see Chris Thorburn take over Kane's spot on the second line and for the Jets to shuffle their lines once more. This is Kane's first suspension.
