On Tuesday morning, Blackhawks superstar Patrick Kane made USA Hockey history. And the 2007 NHL Draft was, appropriately, the combination that made history.
Kane assisted on a goal by James van Riemsdyk – the second overall pick in 2007 – to pass Mark Johnson as USA Hockey’s all-time leading scorer at the Men’s World Championship. Kane now has 34 points in 21 career games at the Worlds; Johnson, a star of the “Miracle on Ice” team, had 33 points in 63 career games at the Worlds.
Patrick Kane has surpassed Mark Johnson as the U.S. career #MensWorlds points leader! ??
