Number 3 – 2012-13 Patrick Kane (Age 24)
Ok, I didn’t mean to include all three seasons the Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup on this list, but hey Kane was really good. It is more than just winning the Stanley Cup that made Kane great. In the 2012-13 season, the biggest thing that made Kane amazing was his amazing scoring rate.
Kane managed to put up 55 points in a shortened season due to a lockout. I wish we could have seen what Kane could have done in 2013 if he had a full season on his hand, instead, we will just have to settle with his Conn Smythe and Stanley Cup ring, right?
Kane also was very accurate in 2013, he had a shooting percentage of 16.7 in 2013 highest of his career. Not only was he an amazing night in and night out, but he helped get the team on an incredible winning streak.
Patrick Kane is a player any team would be happy to have, and 2013 was just another prime example of that. Funny thing is his best two seasons come when the team couldn’t do anything in the playoffs.
