Patrick Kane Joins Another Elite Group

In the first period of Wednesday night’s game in Pittsburgh, Patrick Kane was credited with assists on goals from Artemi Panarin and Marcus Kruger. The two helpers give him 50 on the year, making the 2016-17 season the fourth time in Kane’s career that he has reached 50 assists.

Only three other forwards in Blackhawks history have recorded 50 assists in four seasons while wearing the Indian head: Stan Mikita, Denis Savard and Jeremy Roenick.

  1. Unique, others try to be like him. His ability to slow down the play, push the pace when needed and see the ice is one of a kind-I’d love to see a ‘Top 10’ of his all time great plays. (It would be hard to whittle it down to 10)

  2. A joy to behold, watching Kane create for the Hawks. He has met or surpassed averaging 1 point per game in 7 of his 10 seasons – a stat as good as any other to differentiate elite players from the crowd.

    We are fortunate he wears the Indian head.

  3. Many bloggers still refuse to face the fact that they condemned Kane before the evidence showed a group of people had sex with the accuser and that none of those people was Patrick Kane. One of them even recently changed the name of his blog to escape his lack of credibility.

  4. I remember the rush to judgement very well Doug. Kane is the most gifted offensive player in the NHL today. The Hawks would not have 3 Cups without him.

  5. That no look, back pass, as he crosses behind the net is a thing to behold. It’s pretty much unstoppable.

  6. ALONG WITH 88,WE HAWK FANS ARE LUCKY ENOUGH ALSO TO HAVE 3 OTHER FIRST BALLOT H O F ALL SKATING ON THIS SPECIAL SQUAD. WHAT ARE THE CHANCES OF THAT HAPPENING HERE AGAIN?

  7. After that entire attempted rape fiasco, my belief is that Kaner wanted to show ALOT of fans, Hawk management AND NHL personnel that he was wrongly accused and that he, in fact, is the most offensively talented player in the world. The kid was on a MISSION and he has gone out and performed fantastically for the last two seasons.

    We are lucky to be able to watch a talent like him in a great city like Chicago!!

  8. A Blackhawk fan for 64 years . Patrick Kane an absolute magician on the ice . I have never seen such a gifted player ( skating , puck handling , passing and scoring ) before and may never see the likes of him again . A player like Kane comes along once in a lifetime . Thank you Patrick for all the ” I can’t believe he just did that ” moments !
