The Chicago Blackhawks‘ very own Patrick Kane had his NHL 22 player rating dropped by EA Sports. Personally, I think Hawks fans are going to like where he ranks among other top wingers.

Patrick Kane put up 66 points last season. While he did not score a lot of goals he definitely showcased he is capable of setting up his teammates for some great goals. Going into the new season hopefully, Kane can show he deserves to be even higher next year.

So here is his rating for the upcoming NHL game:

Kane is tied for first amongst right wins with Nikita Kucherov. Rated 92 overall, Kane definitely is accurately portrayed in the game as he is still among the top of the wingers in the NHL. Now the Hawks do have another winger on this list worth mentioning.

Alex DeBrincat is seventh-best in the NHL with a rating of 88 overall.

DeBrincat was the best Blackhawk to play last season putting up 32 goals and 56 points in 52 games with the Hawks. DeBrincat took a big step forward last year, and I think this year will prove he deserves to be higher on this list amongst wingers.

When DeBrincat and Kane take the ice next season there is no doubt they will be forming the Hawks’ top line, the only question left to answer there is who should center the line. Personally, I would have thought it would be Kirby Dach before the season began, but I do have to say that I think Tyler Johnson could work in that position as well.

NHL 22 comes out on October 15th and will be definitely a game I am buying right away when I can. I cannot wait to play EA’s next NHL game, especially considering the Hawks will be a better team with stars like Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, Seth Jones, and Marc-Andre Fleury leading the charge on the roster.

Hopefully, Kane can prove this season that he deserves to stay at the top of the right wings in the NHL as he has held down that position for many many years!
