Kane's Anticipated NHL Return Sparks Speculation on Future Team

As Patrick Kane edges closer to making his NHL comeback, discussions regarding the potential team he might join are gaining momentum. Insider Neil Smith provides insights into what seems to be the most likely landing spot.

Detroit Red Wings Emerge as Primary Contender



Neil Smith, a respected figure in the NHL with a background as President and GM of the New York Rangers, as well as scouting roles with various teams, singles out the Detroit Red Wings as the top contenders to secure Kane's services, especially now that the New York Rangers are no longer in contention.



"Rumors are circulating around #LGRW or #VegasBorn for Patrick Kane since #NYR is out of the mix. #NHL #blackhawks."

"Among the teams reportedly in the Patrick Kane sweepstakes, #LGRW stands out as the sensible choice; #Sabres seem unlikely, and #VegasBorn faces cap constraints. It looks like 88 #Kane might be headed to #hockeytown #NHL #NYR #Blackhawks."

Detroit's Appeal for Kane



The attraction of Detroit for Kane is evident, with a young and promising team poised for playoff success. The opportunity to reunite with former Chicago teammate Alex DeBrincat further enhances the allure. If Kane decides against playing for his hometown Buffalo Sabres, the Red Wings emerge as the perfect fit.


Kane, still without a contract, is in the process of recovering from the surgery he underwent at the end of last year's playoffs. An official announcement regarding his signing is expected in the coming days.
