25 Chicago Blackhawks In 25 Days: Day 1 Patrick Kane
By Jimmy Lynch
We end our 25 Chicago Blackhawks in 25 Days series with none other than Patrick Kane.
Kane is coming off of a career year with the Chicago Blackhawks. This time, he didn’t come away with any hardware like in 2016. That’s okay though, because he’s still an MVP in our eyes.
It is hard to believe that our 25 Chicago Blackhawks In 25 days series is finally coming to a close.
The good news is that means the Blackhawks’ season will begin in about 24 hours. Before that happens, we have one more player to highlight, the MVP of the Chicago Blackhawks, Patrick Kane.
Player Spotlight: Patrick Kane
Yesterday, we pointed out that Duncan Keith has done it all for Chicago. While that is true, one player has done more.
Patrick Kane has won countless trophies and awards throughout his NHL career, and he still has some playing time left within him. Kane is only 30 years old and should continue to be an elite NHL player for many years.
We have talked about the impact of Patrick Kane a lot here at Blackhawk Up. However, it isn’t just us who recognize the impact Kane has. He was also one of the greatest 100 players in the history of the NHL.
Kane is still playing at that top-level he has shown since Day 1. Tomorrow, he starts another campaign to be the best forward in the NHL.
If it was not for Patrick Kane, the Chicago Blackhawks would not be the team they are today. Kane is responsible for setting up players night in and night out, and he makes it look easy.

Kane has a knack for turning plays that should be nothing into something. The way he makes a no-look backhand pass to Jonathan Toews is incredible. Patrick Kane is one of the most skilled players in NHL history and he has the linemates to win this year.
It looks as though the Blackhawks are going to play Patrick Kane on the same line as Jonathan Toews. While I do not necessarily agree with that decision, it still is a recipe for success. Toews and Kane played great hockey together last season, which resulted in Toews’ best offensive season of his career.
Tomorrow, Patrick Kane and the Chicago Blackhawks will start another run at a Stanley Cup playoff position. If the team is going to make the playoffs, only one player will be responsible for punching their ticket to the postseason. His name is Patrick Kane.
