9:06PM EST November 16. 2012 - The Kontinental Hockey League's Dinamo Minsk is reporting on its website that Winnipeg Jets forward Evander Kane has left the Belarus-based team after producing one goal in 12 games.
In announcing Kane's departure, the website quoted team executive Igor Matuskin as saying Kane "could not adapt" to the KHL.
Kane, 21, scored 30 goals for the Jets last season, but could not find his game in the KHL. Early in his tenure with the Dinamo, coach Alexander Andrievsky accused Kane of not being in shape. Kane also was suspended one game by the KHL for delivering a head shot while checking Avangard Omsk defenseman Nikita Pivtaski. Kane posted 47 penalty minutes in his 12 games in Minsk.
