Five Questions with Evander Kane

By Christopher Heredia | January 9, 2020 | People


The San Jose Sharks’ Evander Kane is a left wing power forward known for his aggressive forechecking style. The 6-foot-2, 210-pound fashionista and Tom Ford aficionado from Vancouver, British Columbia, loves charitable causes too, having distributed eyeglasses at Sunnyvale’s Columbia Middle School, worked a wine auction for the Sharks Foundation and served meals at San Jose’s Loaves & Fishes Family Kitchen.

Three fashion staples every man should own?

A crisp high-collared white dress shirt; a nice-sheen black suit, double-breasted with big lapels is always bold; and an A-category pair of black shoes, something that speaks to your personality.

What would you never be caught dead wearing?

Jean shorts. It is a European look, but it’s just not for me.

If you weren’t playing hockey, what would you be doing?

I’d probably be a lawyer. It’s something I’ve always enjoyed when I was in school, that aspect... history, law and debate.

Who would be on your ideal golf foursome?

No. 1 would be Tiger Woods—that’d be a no-brainer; Michael Jordan so we could always play through; and I’m going to go with the big guy, Barack Obama. That would be a hell of a foursome.

Home, away or stealth: Which is your favorite jersey?

Based strictly on looks, I’m going to go with the Stealth jersey. I love a black jersey and the fact that that’s our third jersey, it pops, makes us looks bigger. It’s more dangerous. It’s intimidating.
