San Jose Sharks winger Evander Kane has missed the team's past six games because of personal reasons. On Thursday, he revealed why.

In a post on Twitter, Kane announced that the 26-week-old daughter he and his wife were expecting died over the weekend. 

"My family and I are heartbroken," Kane said. "Words cannot express how excited we were to welcome our baby girl into the world and watch her grow. Eva, you have been the absolute biggest blessing of our lives and we are so grateful for all the joy you brought us in such a short amount of time."

Kane, 27, is the Sharks' third-leading goal-scorer this season with 27. He also has 24 assists and leads the NHL with 149 penalty minutes. 

Kane was the fourth overall pick in the 2009 NHL Draft by the Atlanta Thrahsers and moved with the franchise when it relocated to Winnipeg. He also played for the Buffalo Sabres during his nearly 10-year NHL career. He was traded to San Jose in February 2018.
