Patrick Kane Investigation

This was the hardest story to cover since becoming editor of Blackhawk Up.  Everyone had an opinion on the subject, and everyone were beyond passionate about their stance on the topic.   As a site we just reported the news on the investigation and tried our best to only report the news without any bias which is by far a tough thing to do.

The entire investigation really ruined the summer, because instead of celebrating a Stanley Cup, a little more than a month after winning the Stanley we were focused on events that were happening in and around Buffalo New York.

In the end Kane was never charged with a crime, but no matter what happens this season for the Blackhawks this event will be a black cloud that can swoop in to ruin any moment.

Patrick Kane’s Point Streak

So after what had to be the worst summer of his adult life, Patrick Kane just went out and broke records and kept Chicago Blackhawks excited about watching regular season games in November and December.

First he broke the U.S player record at 18 games, then Kane broke Bobby Hull‘s Chicago Blackhawks record at 21 games, and then he set the record for active players when he hit his final streak number at 26 passing Sidney Crosby.

It really was an exciting streak to watch, and it was a bit sad when the streak ended.
