Number 5 – 2009-10 Patrick Kane (Age 21)
It’s hard to imagine that the 2009-10 season is now 10 years ago. Patrick Kane was one of the top young talents at the time, and honestly, Patrick Kane has grown so much as a player.
During the 2009-10 season, Patrick Kane put up 30 goals and 88 points, not bad for a player in his 3rd full season. One of the most impressive things about Kane that season was how well he performed with the puck. Kane was a 58.8% with Corsi, highest of his career thus far. It just goes to show how well Kane was at the time.
Patrick Kane would also go on to perform rather well in the postseason and help lead Chicago to the Stanley Cup Finals. Not only did Kane play well in the regular season, but he is responsible for bringing the Cup back to Chicago with one big goal.
This season would rank higher in the standings if it weren’t for how well he played going forward. If it were all about winning Stanley Cup’s maybe this season would be higher up in the standings, but because of how awesome Patrick Kane has been all time it only comes in at number 5.
