Edmonton Oilers forward Evander Kane resumed skating Saturday, less than a month after his frightening injury.

Kane, 31, sustained a lacerated left wrist in the second period of a Nov. 8 game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

He dropped to the ice after getting tangled up with Lightning defenseman Philippe Myers before Patrick Maroon accidently skated over his wrist.

With a sizable pool of blood on the ice, Kane stood up, grabbed his wrist and headed frantically to the Edmonton dressing room. He had surgery to repair the injury.

An NHL Network correspondent shared video on Twitter Saturday of Kane working on individual drills but there is no official timeline for his return.

Kane has 13 points (five goals, eight assists) in 14 games this season with Oilers. He is in the first season of a four-year, $20.5 million contract.

He has 558 points (291 goals, 267 assists) in 826 games with the Atlanta/Winnipeg franchise, Buffalo Sabres, San Jose Sharks and Oilers. He was selected by the Thrashers with the fourth overall pick of the 2009 NHL Draft.
