Kane off to a Fast Start

Patrick Kane is a special player and this season is nothing short of it.

Patrick-Kane-1Despite being involved in a rape case in his hometown of Buffalo, chargers were later dropped by the supposed victim, Kane did not stay away or let it slow down his game.

 

Kane has been nothing short of greatness to start the NHL regular season.

 

PKane2Not only is Kane riding a 13-game points streak (one away from a career high), he also leads the NHL with 28 points and a plus-14 rating. He’s on pace for 59 goals and 128 points, which would shatter his previous career highs of 30 and 88.

 

Now don’t get too amped up, Kane is only human…..or is he?

 

Patrick Kane has always been this kind of player.  A premier goal scorer and an even better passer to aid his teammates. Even s ice becoming part of the  Blackhawks at the age of 19, Kane has been a leader on this team and has stepped up when needed.

The off the ice issues Kane dealt with over the offseason almost led to a suspension from the NHL. But Kane never got that phone call and he reported to camp and got ready for another season and a chance to win yet another Stanley Cup.

 

Not only is Kane a pro at what he does, there are others that have contributed to his 13 game point streak.

 

Artem Anisimov and Artemi Panarin are two new members of the Chicago Blackhawks. These two guys find themselves playing a lot with Kaner and all their games have gotten better.

So far, these guys have seen eye to eye and have set up one another for success. It should be very interesting going down the road how good these three guys get.

 

I think a huge reason Kane is going so well is experience. Yes he has been in the league since 2007 but even with winning three championships, more is still to be accomplished.

Kane had a start like this to the season last year until he broke his collarbone. Upon return, he got back to being Patrick Kane but the time out hurt his Hart Trophy chances.

 

pkane3Every year you have a chance to improve your game. We have seen since 2007 how much improvement Kane has shown over the years.

 

You don’t win three Stanley Cups with just showing up….

 

This hot start did not surprise me because I know, and many others know, that Kane is a phenomenal player. Talent like his doesn’t come often so when watching a guy like him, you know every game he is going to make an impact on way or another.

Kane looks to tie his career high in games with at least one point at 14 when the Hawks play Edmonton Wednesday night in Edmonton. This is the start of a six game road trip( November 18-28). Kane has found his way with Edmonton throughout his career so the point streak may live on.
