Coming in at 2nd in all time scoring, is Blackhawks legend Patrick Kane. Through 1107 games, Kaner has 430 goals and 750 assists for 1180 points. During his tenure with the Hawks, he has won three Stanley Cups. Individually, he won the Conn Smythe Trophy in 2013, the Art Ross, Ted Lindsay and Hart Memorial Trophy in 2016, and is a nine time all star. Internationally, Kane represents the USA, and won the Silver medal at the Olympics in 2010.
Kane is a very unique player. He often finds himself in highlight reels for his unbelievable assists and flashy shootout goals, but hasn’t always had a really strong game all around. His defensive skill has been criticized in the past, and although it’s not terrible, it’s evident he’s not always the best in his own zone, or on the backcheck.
This doesn’t take away from the fact that Kane can be named as one of, if not argued as the best player in Blackhawks history. His offensive ability alone is enough for teams to bring in defensive schemes just to shut him down. His ability to create plays out of nothing while making it look simple, while being a leader off the ice makes his value to the team rise even more.
Patrick Kane finds himself at 52nd in all time NHL scoring with plenty of time left in his career to continue climbing the ranks. He sits 4 points behind Rod Brind’Amour, and 1 point ahead of Sergei Fedorov.
Recently as most fans know, Kane’s name has been brought up in trade rumors, so if this is his last full season as a Blackhawk, it’s been an incredible career for the American, and hopefully he continues building up his hall of fame career with whatever team is lucky enough to bring him in.
