Patrick Kane Makes History

On Sunday night, in his hometown of Buffalo, Patrick Kane made NHL history.

Kane’s goal at 6:36 into the third period was his 20th of the 2016-17 season. In reaching that mark, Kane became the first American-born skater to score at least 20 goals in each of his first ten NHL seasons.

Appropriate that, on Hockey Day in America, Kane sets another record for American-born players.

Kane also tied Hall of Famer Denis Savard with the fourth-most 20-goal seasons in Blackhawks history.

On Feb. 10, Kane passed Tony Amonte to become the Blackhawks’ all-time leading American-born scorer.

  1. Bread Man signs for 8 yrs, Kaner will have a few yrs where hes in the prime of his prime yrs and Bread Man will be starting the prime of his prime yrs at the same time. Double Frog Soup.

  2. This is Kaner’s 10th season! WOW! It has gone by fast. Hopefully many more seasons and records to come. Way to go Kaner.

  3. How could one not love Kane going to the glass shouting showtime after having enough time for a cup of coffee and then undressing poor Lehner. Kane is an incredible developing talent and given his age, there should be plenty of “did he just do that?” highlight moments to come for this very special player fortunately in a Hawks uniform.

    Lets Go Hawks!

  4. re: Amonte – do you really consider him to be a comparable legacy to Hull, Mikita, Espo & Savard?

    If the Hawks are going to add ambassadors, Larmer & Roenick should come next. if they weren’t associated w/ other clubs, I would also extend an invite to Doug Wilson, Chris Chelios & Bob Murray.
