Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane pocketed his 100th point Monday night against the Vancouver Canucks. This is the second time in Kane’s career he has achieved reaching the century mark.
Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane hit the century mark in Monday night’s overtime loss to the Vancouver Canucks. Well, he surpassed it, actually. With a second assist to a game-tying goal with just over three minutes remaining in the third period. This goal would send the game to overtime and Patrick Kane at 101 points.
Despite the Blackhawks falling in that overtime period, they keep a point streak alive. The Chicago Blackhawks have received at least a point in their last six games, 11 of 12 possible points to be exact. They will host the Philadelphia Flyers Thursday night at the United Center.
How much more can be said about one of the best players in the NHL? The nickname is perfect. Patrick Kane surpassed the century mark for the second time in his NHL career. The last time he reached 100 points was in the 2015-2016 season ending with 106 total. At this point, it appears that he could exceed that and set a new personal record.
Heading into Thursday night, Kane sits at 1.42 points-per-game. Just under a week ago, Kane was on pace for 118 points total. Now, the estimated total is somewhere around 114. This still greatly exceeds the 106 point total from 2015-2016. In another slow, mildly painful Chicago Blackhawks season, Kane still shines and puts up stellar numbers. There is still a chance that the ‘Hawks could find themselves in the playoffs.
Patrick Kane has exceeded the 100 point total twice now in his career. This has him joining the elite ranks of Chicago Blackhawks greats to also have achieved the feat multiple times. The only other ‘Hawks to meet or exceed 100 points multiple times in their careers are Bobby Hull and Denis Savard. Both reached the mark five times.
In recent years, no Blackhawks player has come close to generating the numbers that Patrick Kane has. Two 100-point seasons, three Stanley Cups, a Calder, a Smythe, Hart, Pearson and Ross award (go ahead and catch your breath); Kane is just getting started. There is plenty of gas left in the tank.
