The Chicago Blackhawks’ very own Patrick Kane is about to play in his 1000th NHL game, all with the Chicago Blackhawks. Kane has passed multiple milestones this season, and this is just the latest of his career.
Usually, when a player is playing in game number 1000 they would be towards the end of his career, but for Kane, it seems like he is just getting started. At just 32 years old, the ‘Hawks top winger is not too far away from passing some of the greats in different categories.
The Blackhawks are playing some pretty good hockey this season. After supposedly entering a rough rebuild, the team seems to have beat the odds and could make the playoffs. For the first time, the main leader on this roster has been Kane.
This season has been an interesting year for Blackhawks hockey. Jonathan Toews has missed the beginning of the season with an injury, and Brent Seabrook has decided to retire after doing his best to battle back from some injuries that have been with him for a long time.
So, without Seabrook and Toews, Kane has been the vocal leader within the ‘Hawks locker room. His leadership is not only as a voice but on the ice as well as he leads the team with 38 points in 26 games. Patrick Kane elevates the play of the Blackhawks in so many different ways.
Patrick Kane is showing no signs of slowing down just yet, and he can still have a lot more success with the Chicago Blackhawks.
Just take a look at Kane’s career stats through the first 1000 games of his career.
Kane has already registered 1060 points through the first 999 games, and who knows how many points he could have. Patrick Kane was also voted as one of the top 100 NHL players a few years ago.
Kane’s 1000 NHL game is coming just a week after he registered his 400 NHL goal. The ‘Hawks are definitely lucky to still have Kane around on this team. It is amazing to think how much more success he could have in his career. At 32 years old he still is able to play at the top of his game. Take a look at goal number 400 just a few weeks ago.
The skill level of Patrick Kane is just getting better. His speed, puck capability, and overall hockey IQ is second to none in the league, and it is only a matter of time before he will have the Stanley Cup over his head again.
