Kane is a perennial top producer for his team. Earning 33 goals and 51 assists for 84 points throughout 2019-20, he once again found himself sitting atop the rest of his teammates in point totals this past year.

He’s already begun to reach rare career milestones, with no signs of slowing down, even amidst less than stellar seasons for his Blackhawks. In January 2020, he achieved his 1,000th point in the NHL.

Looking forward to his 14th campaign in the league, Patrick Kane has amassed 389 goals, 633 assists, and 1,022 points in 973 games. That’s 1.05 points per game.

His trophy case currently includes a Calder Memorial Trophy, Conn Smyth Trophy, Hart Memorial Trophy, Art Ross Trophy, and a Ted Lindsay Award. Kane has also been selected to numerous All-Star Teams.

But what stands out amongst all the rest of his accolades is the three Stanley Cups he’s already helped the Chicago Blackhawks franchise to achieve.

And although the organization has seen less success in recent seasons, there still seems to be plenty left in Kane’s tank to help propel them back towards more success as a team.
