Kane scored a first-period hat trick and added an assist in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Hurricanes.

Kane was serving a three-game suspension for physical abuse of an official in the preseason finale. Without the winger in the lineup, San Jose managed just one goal in each of its first three contests. Getting Kane back in the lineup -- likely in a second-line role -- should provide the club's offense a boost. Last year, the 28-year-old matched his career high of 30 goals and should be capable of reaching that threshold again in 2019-20.
Kane has been suspended three games for physical abuse of an official, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.
The incident that led to Kane's suspension occurred during Sunday's preseason finale against the Golden Knights. In the third period of the contest, Kane was taken to the ice by a referee when it appeared as though he may continue to go after Vegas' Deryk Engelland.

Kane will miss Wednesday and Friday's games against the Golden Knights as well as Saturday's matchup with Anaheim before he'll be eligible to return Tuesday against the Predators.
Kane could be hit with a 10-game suspension for abuse of an official, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.

Kane ended a seven-game goal drought and three-game pointless streak with his two points. While the goals have been hard to come by in the postseason, it hasn't been for a lack of trying, as the British Columbia native recorded 29 shots in nine playoff outings. If Kane can't starting finding the back of the net more consistently, the Sharks could find themselves bounced from the Stanley Cup Playoffs sooner rather than later.

Kane (personal) remains out of the lineup ahead of Thursday's clash with Florida, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.

Kane (undisclosed) will sit out again Thursday against the Canadiens, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.
While Kane will sit out the contest, Brent Burns and Joe Pavelski -- who have both been battling the flu -- look good to go, so the Sharks will still have plenty of firepower against a Canadiens club that has won three of its last four games.

More information should become available closer to puck drop Thursday, while Marcus Sorensen would likely be a solid replacement if Kane misses more time.
