The Winnipeg Jets will have to continue their winning ways without forward Evander Kane for the next few weeks.

Head coach Paul Maurice announced Tuesday that Kane has developed an infection in his hand and will miss the team's remaining games leading up to the Olympic break.

Kane was hurt on Jan. 7 during a fight with Eric Brewer late in a game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The 22-year-old has been on a hot streak of late, tallying four points in the last four games. Through 42 games this season, Kane has 15 goals and 14 assists.

The Jets (25-24-5) have won two straight games, including a 3-1 victory over the Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday. The club is also 6-1 since Maurice took over as head coach.

The Jets have six more games until the Olympic break, which starts on Feb. 9.
