Evander Kane accomplished the unthinkable on the game sheet during Monday night’s matchup between the Oilers and Coyotes, and it did not come in the form of goals or assists.

Somehow, the Oilers’ relatively new winger found a way to collect four minor penalties in… 8:47 minutes! For starters, collecting four penalties in a game is impressive in its own right. But to do it in less than half of a period? That’s almost impossible, and needs an explanation.

Here’s what happened: Kane received a roughing penalty at 19:06 of the second period. He came out of the box at 1:06 of the third, stayed on the ice, and took an interference penalty at 1:38. Then, after getting out at 3:38, the 30-year-old took a tripping penalty at 4:32. And finally, to cap it all off, Kane took another tripping penalty at 6:47 after hopping out again at 6:32.

Truly, the unthinkable. To give you some perspective, Kane’s teammate, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, has just 10 penalty minutes in 48 games this season!

There were some solid memes about Kane’s third period, and this one probably summed it up best.


Despite being down for almost eight straight minutes without a man, Edmonton came away with a 6-1 win and did not surrender a goal during Kane’s time in the sin bin. If there’s one thing we learned from this game, it’s to maybe… come to the bench after taking a penalty? At least after the second one? Kane now has 32 PIMs in 28 games this season.
