The Chicago Blackhawks are not a very good team right now but they have seen a few of their players have massive success. Patrick Kane is one of those players yet again for Chicago. It is unclear what his long-term future in the league is at this point as he only has 2022-23 left on his deal but he has been outstanding in 2021-22.

So far, Kane has 18 goals and 40 assists for 58 points in 53 games played. He is over a point per game yet again and remains one of the best players in the league. His goal totals are down from previous years just a tad but other than that he is on all of his typical paces.

It is notable that he is on fire as of late. Of course, he has been good all season long with a point total like that but things have been extra good for him lately. Kane has six goals in his last six games with five assists tacked on.

The Blackhawks were blown out by the Tampa Bay Lightning on Sunday night but they are one of the best teams in the league. Kane, however, scored or assisted on two of Chicago’s three goals in the 6-3 loss.

He also had numerous chances that were stopped by Tampa Bay goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy. It took the best goalie in the world to keep Kane from having more than two points in the contest. There were some outstanding saves made that kept Tampa in it before they pulled away.

The day before, the Hawks were playing against a significantly worse Flyers team and still managed to lose. Kane, however, was able to have an assist to add to his totals. He is even producing in games that would be considered a disaster for his team overall.

Patrick Kane has been magnificent for the Chicago Blackhawks lately.

With Kane playing just a little bit better over the last six games, which is saying something because he was great before that too, it almost makes you feel bad for him on a professional level. This team is horrible and wasting another outstanding year from their all-time greatest player.

Stan Bowman is gone but he should still be ashamed of himself for allowing this team to fall off a cliff like that. Hopefully, Patrick Kane is able to have some team success as he moves into the latter stages of his career because he has been so good for so long.
