Remember this date Sunday, February 20th, and Patrick Kane has taken sole possession of second in Blackhawks history for most assist in a Hawks jersey. His assist came against the Florida Panthers on United Center ice. This accomplishment is massive and could not have come to a more deserving player. Kane has lived up to his nickname of “Showtime” and has entertained the Windy City since he was drafted first overall in 2007. Kane passed Dennis Savard and has his eyes set on catching The great Stan Mikita.
Patrick Kane can go down as the greatest Blackhawk in history if he stays in Chicago after his contract comes to an end after next season. Until that time comes Hawks, fans should take in the player that Kane is and just how truly great he is. Patrick Kane is the best American player to play the game. Patrick Kane has truly transcended the game. Minnesota Wild fans will recall when Kane made three defenders collapse on him in the playoffs as he used his sweet hands to find the lane to a wide-open Patrick Sharp. Patrick Kane has done it all. He has a Hart Trophy(First American to win), Art Ross Trophy (First American to win), Conn Smyth, Ted Lindsay, Calder Trophy, three Stanley Cups, Nine-time All-Star, and three-time NHL First All-Star Team! To go along with his twenty-six-game point streak, insanity! Kane now has seven hundred and twenty assists, only two hundred and six away from the top spot. Will Kane get there?
