4th year center Cory Kane(8) is off to a hot start with new squad Kunlun Red Star scoring 3 goals and 3 assists in 6 KHL games with a +1 rating.

He had a fairly decent run with HC Ocelari Trinic last season getting 10 goals and 9 assists in 38 Czech Extraliga contests, then added another 3 goals and an assist in the playoffs.

The soon-to-be 27-year old’s tenacious skating game may be well suited for the top Russian league and he’s certainly figured out how to connect early and often.

Cory Kane (8)


Undrafted 3rd year center Cory Kane(8) picks up his game after two seasons of AHL contracts and heads to Czech Extraliga signing a one-year deal with HC Ocelari Trinec.

The 6’1″ 201 lbs. feisty forward started his pro career playing 4 regular season games then 12 Calder Cup Playoff match-ups on an ato with Providence Bruins after four years and a decently successful senior campaign at Ferris State University.

He would sign an extension just before his rookie season and played a career high 55 games scoring 7 goals and 12 assists with a +11 rating but was also reassigned down to South Carolina Stingrays for 6 ECHL games.

Although he wasn’t retained for a second run in Rhode Island, it didn’t take him long into free agency to secure a contract with Texas Stars.

The soon to be 26-year old should find the challenge of going overseas rewarding as he’ll probably be able to open up enough space to post some pretty good numbers.
