Having already earned milestone success this season, achieving his 1,000th point in the NHL, Chicago needs Patrick Kane to keep his spotlight shining bright.

Kane has always been an offensive force and the Blackhawks have been the benefactor of it for 13 years and counting. Quickly making his way up the rankings of USA born players in this league, Kane truly doesn’t show any signs of slowing down.

And that’s great news for this franchise. He led the team with 33 goals, 51 assists, and 84 points through 70 games in the 2019-20 season.

Patrick Kane is the type of offensive threat that no opposing team would willingly want to go up against. His creativity, speed, and prowess, while he’s on the ice, are second to none.

If Kane can simply maintain the type of play he’s continued throughout his career, this team won’t need to worry about goal scoring at the other end of the rink.
