Kane Signs 8-Year Extension With Chicago

News: Patrick Kane has signed an eight-year contract extension with the Blackhawks that runs through the 2022-23 season, NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Along with Patrick Kane, the Hawks inked teammate Jonathan Toews to a deal with the same terms, with TSN.ca reporting that the duo's contracts carry an average annual value of $10.5 million, starting next season. The 25-year-old Kane, who is coming off a season in which he recorded 29 goals and 69 points in 69 regular season games, remains one of the league's most dynamic wingers and Wednesday's signings ensure that the Hawks' organization will continue to roster one of the league's top forward duos for the long haul.

Hawks' Kane, Toews Ask For $12M Per Year

News: Patrick Kane and Blackhawks teammate Jonathan Toews are expected to ask for a contract extension for $12 million a year, which would make them the highest NHL contracts, ESPN Chicago reports.
Analysis: Both Patrick Kane and Toews are heading into the last season of their five-year contracts that paid them $6.3 million annually each. Both are represented by the same agent, Pat Brisson. While the number might shock people, this is just the start of the negotiations and there is a feeling that both players would lower their demands to allow Chicago to bring in a big-name free agent. There also was a suggestion that the Blackhawks are aiming to pay both Kane and Tows $9 million each per year. Chicago officials have said that they would like to sign both players to an extension during this offseason.

Hawks' Kane Expected To Talk Contract Extension

News: Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews are expected to be high priority on the list of Blackhawks general manager Scott Bowman for contract extensions, the Chicago Tribune reported on Tuesday.
Analysis: Both Patrick Kane and Toews are two of the top players in the NHL and both have one season remaining on identical five-year, $31.5 million contracts carrying salary-cap hits of $6.3 million. They can begin negotiations on new deals July 1. There is no doubt that both Kane's and Toews' salaries will increase, but the question is how much of cap hit will the team take with contract extensions. "It's the highest priority for us," Bowman said at the United Center as the Hawks cleared out their lockers two days after the Kings eliminated them in Game 7 of the Western Conference finals.

Chicago's Kane Nabs Two Assists In Series Finale

News: Patrick Kane collected two assists as the Blackhawks lost in Sunday's Game 7 to the Kings.
Analysis: Patrick Kane finishes the postseason with a team-leading 20 points (eight goals, 12 assists), good for third among all skaters. Considering he entered the playoffs with his health somewhat of a question mark after a knee injury cost him the final 12 games of the regular season, Kane was more than productive for the Blackhawks, as well as those who used him in fantasy pools. He was at his best in the final three games of the series when the Blackhawks were facing elimination, compiling two goals and seven assists during that span.

Kane On Fire For Hawks

News: Patrick Kane scored twice and added an assist in Friday's 4-3 Game 6 win over Los Angeles in the Western Conference finals, including the game-winning goal.
Analysis: Patrick Kane has seven points in the last two games as Chicago has bounced back from a 3-1 series deficit to force a Game 7 on Sunday. Kane is establishing himself as a frontrunner for the Conn Smythe Trophy as one of the playoffs' top-scoring forwards. He's utterly skilled and has been showing up when Chicago needs him.

Blackhawks' Kane Racks Up Four Assists

News: Patrick Kane racked up four assists in Wednesday's Game 5 win over the Kings.
Analysis: Patrick Kane's four assists set a new playoff career-high and earned him the game's first star honors. The 25-year-old piloted a line of Brandon Saad and Andrew Shaw that caused fits for the Kings all night, with that trio accounting for two of the goals and several more high-quality scoring opportunities.

Kane's Overtime Goal Sends 'Hawks Onward

News: Patrick Kane scored 9:42 into overtime in against Minnesota on Tuesday, sending the 'Hawks to a series win in six games.
Analysis: It was Patrick Kane's sixth goal of the playoffs, but his first since Game 1 of the series with the Wild. He'd been cold over the last four games, picking up just one assist while going minus-4.

Chicago's Kane Grabs Two Goals In Game 1 Win

News: Patrick Kane collected two goals in Friday's Game 1 win over the Wild.
Analysis: Patrick Kane was the star of the show during a crazy third period that saw the Wild claw back from a 2-0 deficit to tie the game, before the 25-year-old took over. His first goal went down as the game-winner and was particularly masterful, as he dashed with the puck through the Wild zone, briefly hesitating before splitting two defenders and lifting a backhand over goalie Ilya Bryzgalov's shoulder. He's now tallied five goals in seven postseason games.

Kane Propels Blackhawks To Victory In Game 4

News: Patrick Kane scored the game-winning goal in overtime Wednesday against the Blues and supplied another goal and an assist in regulation.
Analysis: Held to just three shot attempts over Game 2 and 3, Patrick Kane provided the Blackhawks with his best performance since returning from the left leg injury that sidelined him for the remaining 12 games of the regular season. Last year's Conn Smythe Trophy winner looks like he could be gearing up for another run at the award in 2014.

Hawks' Kane To Stay With Toews Game 4

News: Patrick Kane was joined with Jonathan Toews on the same line in Game 3 and will again be together on the top line for Wednesday night, Game 4, the Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: There is precedence for the postseason changeup. Hawks' coach Joel Quenneville went to the formula during the Western Conference finals against the Kings last season. "(Patrick Kane and Toews) feed off each other, anticipating offensively, see plays (and) make plays," Quenneville said. "They're a threat off the rush. They're two pretty amazing players."

Hawks' Kane Skates Big Minutes In Game 1

News: Patrick Kane skated 28:31 in Thursday's triple-overtime Game 1 loss to the Blues, scoring a goal on six shots.
Analysis: It's good to see Patrick Kane affected little enough by the knee injury that forced him out at the end of the regular season. The fact that he was able to handle 37 shifts in this marathon is a promising sign for the games to come.

Hawks' Kane Ready For Game 1

News: Patrick Kane (knee) will play in Game 1 against the Blues on Thursday, ESPN Chicago reports.
Analysis: After sitting out the final 12 games of the season, Patrick Kane declared himself ready for the playoffs Monday. He finished the regular season with 29 goals and 40 assists through 69 games, and should slide back into his second-line right wing spot for the first-round matchup with the Blues.

Hawks' Kane Continues To Skate

News: Patrick Kane (lower body) skated at the team's morning skate Wednesday, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports.
Analysis: Patrick Kane has been skating consistently over the last week, and although it's encouraging, he's still not expected to play before the playoffs begin. With a playoff spot already secured, the Hawks will rest Kane, along with captain Jonathan Toews (upper body), for the remainder of the regular season in hopes of making another run at the Stanley Cup.

Blackhawks' Kane Making Progress

News: Patrick Kane (lower body) has skated each of the last two days, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Analysis: As Patrick Kane's activity level would suggest, coach Joel Quenneville said the forward has been doing well in his recovery from the lower-body injury. Assuming he endures no setbacks over the next week or so, he should be ready to play in the first round of the playoffs.

Blackhawks' Kane Skates Without Issue Thursday

News: Patrick Kane (lower body) skated Friday and it went well.
Analysis: Patrick Kane has already been ruled out for the regular season, but he's expected back for the playoffs. Friday's successful skate is a great sign for the 'Hawks but it won't do much for fantasy owners.

Blackhawks' Kane Could Resume Skating Friday

News: Patrick Kane (lower body) could resume skating Friday, ESPN Chicago reports.
Analysis: While Patrick Kane has already been ruled out for the rest of the regular season, a return to the ice for practice in the coming days should at least give him enough time to prepare for the playoffs. The Blackhawks will need him to be at close to his full level of conditioning as soon as he's available, with a difficult first-round matchup looming in the highly competitive Western Conference.

Hawks' Kane To Return For Playoffs

News: Patrick Kane (lower body) will be back with the Blackhawks for the playoffs, according to GM Scott Bowman.
Analysis: Patrick Kane, who was placed on long-term injured reserve on Friday, will have to miss at least 10 games and 24 days before being eligible to return to action. The fact that he'll return for the playoffs is great news for Blackhawks fans, but not much consolation for fantasy owners competing for a championship.

Patrick Kane

Hawks' Kane Placed On Long-Term IR

News: Patrick Kane, who suffered a lower-body injury against the Blues on Wednesday, was placed on long-term injured reserve on Friday, but he is still expected to miss at least three weeks, ESPN Chicago reports.
Analysis: This move is more to open up salary-cap space than it is any indication that he'll miss extra time. Patrick Kane will have to sit out a minimum of 10 games and 24 days after being placed on long-term injured reserve, but he was already expected to miss the rest of the regular season.

Blackhawks' Kane To Miss Two Weeks

News: Coach Joel Quenneville said after Wednesday's game that Patrick Kane would be out for three weeks with the lower-body injury, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: The coach further indicated that he wasn't certain that Patrick Kane would return before the end of the regular season, more than likely putting him out of commission as the fantasy playoffs begin over these next few weeks. A deep Blackhawks roster that has seemingly secured its place in the top half of the Western Conference standings can probably withstand the loss of even a player of Kane's caliber, but his absence leaves a point-per-game-sized hole in the lineups of his fantasy owners.

Patrick Kane

Hawks' Kane (Lower Body) Could Miss Two Weeks

News: Patrick Kane, who suffered a lower-body injury Wednesday vs. the Blues, could be lost for two weeks, NBC Sports reported on Wednesday night.
Analysis: Though the details still remain scarce, it appeared Patrick Kane suffered a leg or ankle injury in the game. The preliminary timetable is two weeks and it came from Kane's agent, so the injury would seem to be slightly more significant than what was initially reported. That time period would put Kane on track to return in early April, but fantasy owners would be wise to wait for the Blackhawks to confirm the prognosis. The Blackhawks appear to be safe in making the playoffs, but they continue to battle the Avalanche for home-ice advantage.

Blackhawks' Kane Leaves Game With Injury

News: Patrick Kane (lower body) did not return to the Wednesday's game after departing in the second period, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: Although Patrick Kane didn't return to the game, a source close to the Blackhawks said his injury isn't considered serious, according to Kuc. While Kane's removal from Wednesday's game could very well be precautionary, his status remains in question for Friday's match vs. the Hurricanes.

Hawks' Kane (Lower Body) Leaves Wednesday's Game

News: Patrick Kane (lower-body injury) left the second period of Wednesday night's game against the Blues in a lot of pain, the Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: It appeared to be a leg or ankle issue, but there were no reports whether or not he would return to the game. It would be a big blow to the Blackhawks' offense if Patrick Kane is out for any period of time.

Hawks' Kane Scores In Loss

News: Patrick Kane potted a goal in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Avalanche.
Analysis: Patrick Kane now has 29 goals and 38 assists in 65 games this season, and his 67 points rank fourth in the NHL at the moment. He's having one of the best seasons of his career, despite not playing alongside a true playmaking center on most nights.

Blackhawks' Kane Gets First Post-Break Goal

News: Patrick Kane potted a goal in Sunday's win over the Sabres.
Analysis: Playing in his hometown of Buffalo, Patrick Kane seemed to be comfortable right away in front of his family and friends, scoring just three minutes into Sunday's game. The early tally snapped a five-game goal drought for Kane, who actually narrowly missed out on a hat trick -- he had a backhander stopped by goalie Jhonas Enroth on a 1-on-1 blitz, and he put the puck into an empty net one second after the final horn in the third period.

Hawks' Kane Botches Two Penalty Shots For U.S.

News: Patrick Kane failed to connect on either of his two penalty shot attempts as the Americans dropped the bronze medal game to Finland on Saturday.
Analysis: After a draining 1-0 loss to Canada a day earlier, Patrick Kane and his American mates didn't rise to the occasion against Finland, with the forward's failure to capitalize on either of his penalty shots amounting to the game's biggest missed opportunities. He'll try to pick himself up when he returns to Chicago for practices next week and will look to make a run at his second career 80-point campaign.
