The Chicago Blackhawks Star Patrick Kane picked up his career point #800 on his second goal of the night against the New York Islanders. 

Patrick Kane has done a lot of great things in his career, and tonight he achieved a pretty cool milestone hitting the 800 point plateau.

Kane scored in the first minute of the game to give the Chicago Blackhawks an early lead, but the Islanders scored 4 unanswered goals.  Kane assisted on Erik Gustafsson‘s first career NHL goal late in the second period, and then midway through the third period Kane scored an unassisted goal for Point #800!

It was pretty fitting that Patrick Sharp was on the ice when Kane hit the 800 point milestone since he was on the ice for his 1st, 100, and 200nd career goals.

Kane’s season has been pretty streaky.  He had a 5 point night against the Ottawa Senators and then went pointless for 3 games before the bye week. Then tonight he broke out for 3 points to hit #800.

More from Blackhawks News

Only 4 other Chicago Blackhawks have ever achieved 800 career points while wearing the Chicago Blackhawks sweater.  Stan Mikita, Bobby Hull, Denis Savard, and Steve Larmer.  Three out of the four have their numbers hanging from the rafters and Larmer’s #28 should be up there as well. One thing is certain, Kane is the first and only player that will ever wear #88 in Chicago Blackhawks history.

Who knows where Kane will end up in his Blackhawks career, but he keeps climbing up the ladder and tonight was another step hitting #800!
