The Remarkable Shootout Legacy of Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews

Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews, two of hockey's biggest stars, have both scored 52 goals in NHL shootouts.
This ties them for the most shootout goals ever. The two played for the Chicago Blackhawks and won three Stanley Cups together. Now, their time in Chicago has passed.
Toews is nearly retired, and Kane plays for another team. But their record still stands after the 2023-24 season concluded.
The NHL started using shootouts in 2005. If a game is tied after overtime, players take turns trying to score against the goalie. It's a thrilling way to end a game.
Kane and Toews were great at shootouts. They scored more than any other players, except Frans Nielsen and T.J. Oshie, who have 49 each.
Toews was known for his straightforward style. He often aimed straight for the goal, known as going "five-hole". Kane liked to surprise goalies with tricky moves.
Toews had a better scoring percentage than Kane. He scored his 52 goals in just 110 tries. Kane needed 130 tries for his 52 goals.
Toews' success rate is the highest ever for a player who has tried more than 100 times.
The NHL now uses 3-on-3 overtime instead of 4-on-4, so fewer games reach a shootout. This might help Kane and Toews keep their record for a long time.
Kane always excited the fans. He could slow down to confuse goalies or make quick moves that left them behind. Toews may have been less flashy, but he was incredibly effective.
Kane and Toews have truly left their mark on hockey. They won championships and amazed fans. Their shootout record is just one part of their legacy that will be remembered for a long time.
