WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Jets have placed forward Evander Kane on injured reserve as he recovers from what coach Paul Maurice calls a deep cut on his hand.

The move is retroactive to Jan. 7, when Kane last played in Winnipeg's 4-2 loss to Tampa Bay at the MTS Centre. While it's unknown how Kane injured his hand, he did end that game with a fight against Lightning defenceman Eric Brewer.

Kane has 14 goals and 11 assists in 38 games this season and is one of the Jets' most productive forwards. The team has recalled Carl Klingberg from the American Hockey League's St. John's IceCaps to fill in.

Klingberg has 11 goals and seven assists in 33 games with the IceCaps this season.
