The Blackhawks honored Patrick Kane on Tuesday night with a special pregame ceremony for the right winger scoring his 1,000th NHL point.
Kane passed from behind the Winnipeg net to Ryan Carpenter in the bottom of the right face-off circle, and he passed across the goal mouth to Brandon Saad for a tap-in goal in the third period of Chicago’s 5-2 win against the Jets on Sunday.
Kane (31 years, 61 days) is the youngest United States-born player to reach the milestone, ahead of Jeremy Roenick (32 years, 13 days). The right wing has 380 goals and 620 assists in 953 games in 13 seasons, all with the Blackhawks. Three other players have had 1,000 points with the Blackhawks (Stan Mikita, 1,467; Bobby Hull, 1,153; and Denis Savard, 1,096).
