With 50 games, Patrick Kane is on a streak for 68 assists, 114 points, and 46 goals. All of these will set or tie career-highs.
Kane has assisted or scored on 46% of the Blackhawk’s 155 goals. Only Connor McDavid has been in a higher percentage of his team’s goals this season.
When he retires, there’s a real solid chance he completes his career as the best American-born player in the history of hockey. He is already at number 13 in points when it comes to players born in the US.
Looking at Kane’s Career
When you look back on Kane’s career, several highlights stand out. His list of accomplishments keeps growing.
How can you not remember the late-game goal against the Nashville Predators, changing the direction of the series with just 13 seconds left in the game?
How can you not remember his game-winning goal in overtime of the 2010 Stanley Cup Final, gliding the puck under Michael Leighton and snapping a 49 yea-old Stanley Cup drought in Chicago?
How can you not remember the no-look Savardian Spin-o-rama pass to Marian Hossa against the Ducks? Or the one he did against the Stars?
How can you not remember the move against Jonathan Quick in the ‘13 Western Conference Finals sending hats flying onto the United Center ice and the Blackhawks into the Stanley Cup Final?
How can you not remember the double-overtime dangle that won in St. Louis? Or the overtime win goal to clinch the series against the Wild?
Enjoy watching Patrick Kane while you can. One day, the #88 will hang from the rafters of the United Center in Chicago preserved in the distinguished history of the franchise.
