The Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane was the best deking rating in NHL 21.
Everyone says Kane has the best hands in the NHL. So many young hockey players want to be like Patrick Kane. The dude has amazing moves on the ice and he makes it look so effortless.
Kane is coming off of a season where he had 33-goals and 51-assists for 84-points in 70-games. He was close to another 100-points season before the NHL pause happened. It’s likely he wouldn’t have gotten there, but 16-points in 12-games wouldn’t be impossible for Kane.
Kane as a 97-rating is a good place for him. He has Connor McDavid and former teammate Artemi Panarin right behind him with a 96-rating. The player that fans are up and arms about for not being higher is Nikita Kucherov. Kucherov has made a name for himself in the shootout and for having solid hands, just like Kane.
I am curious to see his full rating when it’s either announced or when the game comes out. I would expect Kane to land around 91-92 overall, as he is still one of the best players in the NHL.
