Major Update on Patrick Kane's destination

Published September 8, 2023 at 5:17 PM

A Chicago Blackhawks reunion may be in the works... maybe Detroit?

In recent weeks, there has been a lot of speculation that Patrick Kane will play a big role in the Yzerplan.

Is it realistic that Kane and Alex DeBrincat could reunite in Detroit once he returns midseason?

«I don't know that he's focused on just the one team,» TSN Insider Chris Johnston said. «I think that there's a couple different situations that would probably be appealing.»

«He's got the luxury of, first of all, being Patrick Kane,» Johnston said on a radio show. «I think a lot of teams will always be interested given the resumé and all that he's accomplished during his career. He can take a little bit more of a wait and see in terms of where the offers are, where the teams are at, before making a choice. He's indicated he would sign tomorrow for the right deal. But if that deal doesn't show up, I think that he'll continue to sort of gauge things as he works his way back. And probably the best news of all, of course, is that it does seem as though he's in a much better place after electing to have that hip surgery. He's been able to skate much sooner than they thought.»

It seems Detroit won't be the only suitor for the 3-time Stanley Cup champion according to NHL Insider Chris Johnston.

In the meantime, Kane is still undergoing rehabilitation and working on getting better after his surgery and certainly wants another shot at a cup after losing in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs to the New Jersey Devils with the New York Rangers.
