Buffalo Sabres forward Evander Kane took the next step in his recovery from shoulder surgery by hitting the ice for the first time on Wednesday.

The 23-year-old posted a picture of himself on Instagram last night with a caption, which read, “Good feeling being back on the ice for the first time in 5 months! I’m liking the new practice jersey too!”

Kane, who was dealt from the Jets to the Sabres on Feb. 11, underwent surgery on his shoulder on Feb. 7.

Last month Kane was in Buffalo to have his shoulder looked at and his agent, Craig Oster, told PHT that his client was “ahead of schedule” in his recovery process.

Kane had 10 goals and 22 points in 37 games with the Winnipeg Jets prior to undergoing season-ending surgery.
