Sharks appear to be moving on without Evander Kane, for however long that continues – The Athletic

The vibe on Wednesday at Sharks Ice was as upbeat and cheery as it has been since training camp began two weeks ago. There was Erik Karlsson playfully chiding Mario Ferraro after the latter got stung by a puck in an awkward place on his ankle, Nick Bonino dramatically holstering his stick after firing a puck past Alexei Melnichuk and then promptly bear-hugging an unsuspecting Logan Couture from behind, and Ferraro loudly jawing with Brent Burns and Marc-Edouard Vlasic as they all attempted to step through the narrow door leading off the ice at the same time.

“I don’t want to get too far ahead of myself, but it’s the best vibe I’ve seen in the last couple years here,” coach Bob Boughner said of training camp as a whole.

No one, at least during practice, appeared to be too concerned with the latest bit of unfortunate news surrounding Evander Kane, and that the forward may have attempted to falsify his COVID-19 vaccination status.
