Patrick Kane Breaks His Silence on Possible Return to Chicago Blackhawks

Many people thought the New York Rangers would be unbeatable in the playoffs when General Manager Chris Drury made the acquisitions of Vladimir Tarasenko and Patrick Kane.

Unfortunately for Rangers fans, the New Jersey Devils eliminated the team from the playoffs in the first round. Many people were left wondering whether this was Kane’s last game in the Big Apple and where he would end up as a pending UFA.

Kane made it apparent to the media that it wouldn’t be the Chicago Blackhawks by saying:

“They haven’t even crossed my mind”

Kane didn’t rule out returning to New York, but we do know he won’t be coming back to Chicago. By his comments to the media, Kane actually seems to want to stay.

“I would love to be back. If I can feel better, with this team and this opportunity, I’d love that chance.”

Kane also praised his time with the team and this location, saying:

“I’m really thankful for the opportunity. I had a blast. It’s a special group in here, I think they’ll find a way to win.”

We know Kane didn’t get to give his all with the Rangers playing injured the entire time, and at 34 years old Kane will want to go to a team that could give him another opportunity at the Stanley Cup.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: and let's talk some hockey!
