Blackhawks' Kane Looking Sharp In Postseason

News: Patrick Kane assisted on the Blackhawks' lone goal in Thursday's Game 5 loss to the Predators.
Analysis: After being sidelined for seven weeks with a broken clavicle, Patrick Kane hasn't missed a beat since returning to action for the Blackhawks' first-round series. He's provided a point in all but one of the five games thus far, netting a goal, four assists, and 18 shot attempts. That per-game production is almost exactly in line with what he provided prior to the injury, when he was considered one of the leading candidates for the Hart Trophy. Daily game players can probably feel confident building their rosters around Kane throughout the postseason.

Hawks' Kane Productive In Return

News: Patrick Kane set up two goals in Wednesday's Game 1 win over Nashville. It was his first game since Feb. 24 after suffering a broken clavicle.
Analysis: And with the healthy return of Patrick Kane, the Blackhawks are now an early front-runner to go all the way in a quest for their third Stanley Cup in six years. Kane recovered from his injury in seven weeks -- five weeks earlier than the initial 12-week prognosis -- so look for him to continue scoring with regularity as this series marches on.

Hawks' Kane On Track To Play Wednesday

News: Coach Joel Quenneville confirmed Tuesday that Patrick Kane (clavicle) will play in Wednesday's playoff opener against the Predators, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports. The Blackhawks are no longer listing him on long-term injured reserve.
Analysis: Patrick Kane, who was cleared for full participation Monday, is thus slated to suit up for the Hawks on Wednesday for the first time since Feb. 24, when he suffered a broken left clavicle. Prior to sustaining the injury, Kane had recorded 64 points in 61 games for the Hawks.

Blackhawks' Kane Cleared By Doctors

News: Patrick Kane (upper body) was cleared for full participation by the Blackhawks' team physician.
Analysis: Patrick Kane appeared to be trending toward a return for Game 1 of the Blackhawks' first-round matchup with the Predators after taking part in full-contact practice Monday, and the positive report from the doctor only adds further optimism about his status. The winger remains listed on the Blackhawks' long-term injured reserve list, but that appears to be only a formality at this point. Given his participation in line rushes and on the top power-play unit at Monday's practice, Kane looks healthy and ready for activation ahead of Wednesday's postseason opener. It's quite the improbable development after the broken clavicle was initially expected to sideline him through late May.

Blackhawks' Kane Could Play Wednesday

News: Coach Joel Quenneville indicated Monday that Patrick Kane (upper body) could play in Game 1 against the Predators if he completes another practice successfully Tuesday, ESPN Chicago reports.
Analysis: Patrick Kane was cleared for contact Monday and skated in his familiar spot on the Blackhawks' second line, which represents another major step forward in his recovery. While his status for Game 1 remains undetermined, it appears quite likely that he'll be able to play if he makes it through Tuesday's practice without any complications. Even if team doctors aren't willing to give him the green light to play in Game 1, Kane looks poised to join the team at some point during the series, giving a huge morale and personnel boost to the Blackhawks early in the postseason.

Patrick Kane

Hawks' Kane Cleared For Contact

News: Patrick Kane (upper body) was cleared for contact Monday, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: While that is a major step forward for Patrick Kane, who practiced Monday without wearing a non-contact jersey, at this stage the forward is unsure of his status for Wednesday's playoff opener against the Preds.

Kane Practices With 'Hawks Monday

News: Patrick Kane (upper body) was on the ice for Monday's practice, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: Of particular note is that Patrick Kane was not sporting a non-contact jersey, so it appears as though he'll absorb contact at Monday's practice, which represents a positive indicator with regard to his status as Wednesday's playoff opener against the Preds approaches.

Patrick Kane

Hawks' Kane Probable for Game 1 Wednesday

News: Patrick Kane (upper body) is expected to be cleared for full contact for Monday practice and is probable for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup playoffs first round on Wednesday, Pat Boyle of CSN Chicago reports.
Analysis: Patrick Kane had been absorbing some contact in practice over the weekend, but this has been the most optimistic of the reports for his return. It seems the original timeline that had Kane returning from a broken clavicle in May (about the Stanley Cup conference finals) might have been on the conservative side. It still would be a surprise to see Kane on the ice for Game 1, but Boyle is pretty tuned into the Blackhawks. Hawks' coach Joel Quenneville had been indicating recently that Kane was ahead of schedule in terms of his recovery period.

Hawks' Kane Progressing

News: Patrick Kane (upper body) was able to absorb some contact over the weekend, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Analysis: While Lazerus suggests that Patrick Kane may be nearing a return, he speculates that a potential "Game 3-ish" return is a more likely scenario for the forward than the Hawks' playoff opener Wednesday against the Preds. Look for some added clarity with regard to Kane's playing status as soon as Monday's practice.

Another Step Forward For Blackhawks' Kane

News: Patrick Kane (upper body) was attempting slap shots during Tuesday's practice, a sign he's taken another step forward in the recovery process, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: Patrick Kane had previously been limited to firing off wrist shots during practices, but the fact that he was taking one-timers during Tuesday's session suggests he's progressed further from the broken clavicle. At this point, the question isn't whether or not Kane will beat the 12-week recovery timetable initially outlined for him Feb. 24; it's how much sooner than the 12 weeks he'll be ready to go. Kane's next barrier to cross will be taking part in full-contact practice, which could come as soon as April 13. A return in the first or second round of the postseason may yet be feasible.

Blackhawks' Kane Could Be Back For First Round

News: Coach Joel Quenneville acknowledged Sunday that Patrick Kane (upper body) could make his return to the lineup during the first round of the playoffs, Paul Skrbina of the Chicago Tribune reports. "Tough to say," Quenneville said, regarding a potential first-round return for Kane. "Medical clearance is the hurdle...that's where it's at."
Analysis: The club line had previously been that Patrick Kane remains on a 12-week recovery timetable, which would prevent the star winger from playing until mid-to-late May, or the third round of the playoffs. However, after Kane was able to resume skating with the team last week and participated in Sunday's morning session, it appears Quenneville has softened his stance on the matter. Kane can't be activated from long-term during the remainder of the regular season due to salary-cap restrictions, but if he continues to show improved condition over the next few days, the 25-year-old will generate more optimism that he might be able to make an early postseason return.

Hawks' Kane Not Eligible To Return Before Playoffs

News: Patrick Kane (upper body) will not be eligible to return from the Blackhawks' injured reserve list until the postseason due to salary-cap restrictions, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: Those hoping Wednesday's reports that Patrick Kane had resumed practicing with the team would signal a forthcoming return for the star winger can table those hopes for now. Kane is still facing a 12-week recovery timetable from the broken clavicle he suffered Feb. 24, putting him on tap for a return in May. There isn't much incentive in stashing Kane in season-long leagues, and his likely absence for at least the first round of the postseason suggests he's a sketchy choice in postseason pools, too.

Blackhawks' Kane Says Timetable Hasn't Changed

News: Though he was able to get in a non-contact practice Wednesday, Patrick Kane said that his 12-week recovery timetable hasn't changed, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: Coach Joel Quenneville also reiterated as much, but Patrick Kane still seems optimistic about beating that timetable after he was able to resume practicing far earlier than most anticipated. Since Kane was placed on long-term injured reserve back in February and has a $10.5 million annual salary, it seems unlikely that the cap-strapped Blackhawks would even have the capacity to activate the winger before the end of the regular season, even if he was deemed fully healthy at that point. Instead, the Blackhawks will simply hope to have Kane back at some point in the playoffs, though it remains up in the air how early his return might come, if at all.

Hawks' Kane Resumes No-Contact Practice

News: Patrick Kane (upper body) made a surprise return to Wednesday's practice, participating in a no-contact capacity, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports.
Analysis: Patrick Kane had been skating on his own for the last couple of weeks for what was believed to be conditioning purposes, but his return to practice suggests he's progressing much more rapidly than the Blackhawks even anticipated. The star winger was expected to be out of the lineup until deep in the postseason after he was given a 12-week recovery timetable upon suffering a broken clavicle Feb. 24; however, it now seems somewhat conceivable that he might not even miss any playoff games at all. As of yet, the Blackhawks haven't upgraded Kane's timetable, but given that the 25-year-old was already firing off wrist shots during Wednesday's practice, optimism certainly seems to be building.

Good News Arriving On Status Of Hawks' Kane?

News: Patrick Kane, who suffered a broken clavicle on Feb. 24, is making good progress, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Analysis: Original estimates suggested that Patrick Kane wouldn't return before mid-May, assuming the Hawks were still in the playoffs at that time, but Monday's report suggests that there's a chance that the forward's timetable on that front could be altered favorably. "There's been some excellent progress," coach Joel Quenneville said Monday of Kane. "It could be good news. We'll see."

Hawks' Kane Still On Target For Return

News: Patrick Kane, who is out with a broken clavicle, is still on track to return by the Western Conference Finals in the Stanley Cup playoffs if the Blackhawks get that far, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Analysis: The original diagnosis was that Patrick Kane would miss 12 weeks that put his return by the Western Conference Finals. Blackhawks' coach Joel Quenneville though sort of left open the door that he could return earlier. Kane has recently been skating on his own so it has spurred some optimism in the Blackhawks' camp that he will return before the conference finals.

Hawks' Kane Skates Solo Friday

News: Patrick Kane (upper body) took to the ice for a solo skate Friday, CSN Chicago's Tracey Myers reports.
Analysis: It doesn't signal that Patrick Kane is closing in on a return to the lineup, nor does it indicate a change in his timetable, as coach Joel Quenneville indicated that the forward's 12-week recovery timetable hasn't changed. Consider it just an attempt for Kane to stay conditioned for what would be a late-postseason return in a best-case scenario.

Hawks' Kane Expected To Miss 12 Weeks

News: Patrick Kane underwent successful surgery to repair a left clavicle fracture Wednesday, and he's expected to miss 12 weeks.
Analysis: With the team's worst nightmare now confirmed, Chicago may look to make a move to add another winger to help compensate for the loss of Patrick Kane. Assuming the 12-week timetable holds up, Kane -- who will miss the remainder of the regular season -- could be ready to return during the third round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, if the Blackhawks make it that far.

Chicago Places Kane On Long-Term IR

News: The Blackhawks have placed Patrick Kane (upper body) on long-term injured reserve, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: In a corresponding move, the team recalled forward Teuvo Teravainen from AHL Rockford. Per the Chicago Sun-Times, there are fears that Patrick Kane suffered a clavicle injury Tuesday, and while the Blackhawks did not provide an official update on the forward's status Wednesday morning, ESPN.com has indicated that he'll be out 6-to-10 weeks. That timeline would likely keep Kane out until deep into the Stanley Cup playoffs, which will likely motivate the Blackhawks to add another winger via trade. By placing Kane on LTIR, the cap-strapped squad will at least be able to free up around $5 million in salary room ahead of the deadline.

Blackhawks' Kane Likely Has Broken Collarbone

News: Patrick Kane's upper-body injury is suspected to be a broken collarbone, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: While the Blackhawks haven't confirmed the nature of the injury nor an expected length of absence, sources from within the organization have informed the media that Patrick Kane is expected to miss more than six weeks and possibly up to 10-plus weeks with the injury. That timeframe would keep him out for the remainder of the regular season and likely extend deep into the playoffs, robbing the Blackhawks of their most productive playmaker. With no one available on the trade market to easily replace Kane's offensive output, the Blackhawks could begin to slide down the Western Conference standings.

Hawks' Kane Could Miss 10-Plus Weeks

News: Patrick Kane (upper body) could miss anywhere from six to more than 10 weeks after being sent into the boards by Florida's Alex Petrovic during Tuesday's game, the Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: Coach Joel Quenneville said after the game that Patrick Kane would "miss some time." This news means Kane could be sidelined for the remainder of the regular season and deep into the Stanley Cup playoffs. Such a lengthy absence would be a crippling blow to the Blackhawks, as they simply can't replace Kane, who was arguably the frontrunner for the Hart Trophy. He was tied for the league lead in scoring entering play Tuesday with 64 points.

Hawks' Kane (Upper Body) To Miss Some Time

News: Patrick Kane (upper body) is expected to miss some time, but the time period will not be known until Wednesday, Hawks' Joel Quenneville told Megan Mawicke of CBS Sports.
Analysis: Patrick Kane sustained the injury on a cross check by the Panthers' Alex Petrovic near the eight-minute mark of the first period. The Blackhawks winger lost his balance after the hit and tumbled into the boards, appearing to hurt his left shoulder or arm. Both the team and fantasy owners alike are surely holding their breath for good news regarding Kane, who is tied for the league lead with 64 points on the season.

News: Patrick Kane left Tuesday's game against the Panthers with an upper-body injury and will not return, ESPN Chicago reports.
Analysis: Patrick Kane sustained the injury on a cross check by the Panthers' Alex Petrovic near the eight-minute mark of the first period. The Blackhawks winger lost his balance after the hit and tumbled into the boards, appearing to hurt his left shoulder or arm. Both the team and fantasy owners alike are surely holding their breath for good news regarding Kane, who is tied for the league lead with 64 points on the season. More information regarding the extent of his injury should become available within the next couple of days.

News: Patrick Kane (upper body) left Tuesday's game against Florida in the first period after being knocked into the boards by Florida's Alex Petrovic and will not return, WGN-AM Radio in Chicago reported.
Analysis: After being knocked into the boards, he was holding his left side and reportedly was either an injury to his left shoulder or left wrist. We will keep you posted for any updates expected to come after the game.

Hawks' Kane Posts Three Points In Loss

News: Patrick Kane racked up a goal and two assists in Wednesday's 5-4 OT loss to the Canucks.
Analysis: Patrick Kane continued his recent dominance with three more points, putting him firmly in the lead in the NHL's scoring race with 62 points in 55 games. Since being matched up with center Brad Richards about a month into the season, Kane has been arguably the best player in the NHL, so fantasy owners should pay careful attention to who the Hawks have lined up to center the winger next season, as Richards is likely just a one year rental.
