Kane (31 years, 61 days) is the youngest United States-born player to reach the milestone, ahead of Jeremy Roenick (32 years, 13 days). Three other players have had 1,000 points with the Blackhawks (Stan Mikita, 1,467; Bobby Hull, 1,153; and Denis Savard, 1,096).
So happy for Patrick Kane who collected his 1,000th @NHL point! He is one of the most talented players to ever play, and deserves this milestone. What a moment for him, the @NHLBlackhawks organization, fans and City of Chicago. What a career so far! Congrats Kaner!— Jeremy Roenick (@Jeremy_Roenick) January 20, 2020
Kane also received plenty of congratulatory messages on social media from teammates, past and present, and from others around the hockey community.
