Kane's 223 shots on goal this season have him on pace for the most of his career.
While the 28-year-old's 65 points in 62 games still qualify as elite, he hasn't been able to reprise last year's otherworldly 106-point form. Some of Kane's downtick in production can be attributed to his stifled performance on the power play (18 points compared to 37 last season). However, it's worth noting that the American's current shot rate amounts to an 82-game pace of 295 shots on goal, which would be the most of his 10-year career and demonstrates further evolution of arguably the NHL's most dynamic player.
It was simply another game, and another couple points for the veteran superstar, who has gone off for 28 points in his last 22 contests. That gives Kane 65 in 62 games thus far -- not to mention 223 shots on goal -- and while he won't end up in the same stratosphere as last year's 106-point explosion, it's still been a wild, successful campaign for No. 88.
The was Kane's third career hat trick and his first of the 2016-17 campaign, lighting the lamp in every period. This accomplishment is even more impressive when you consider that he only needed five shots to see the hats flying all over the ice. No, he's not likely to come near the career-high 103 points that he dropped last season, but Kane is still averaging greater than a point per game (63 in 61) and remains an elite fantasy option.
Kane posted a goal and an assist in a 5-1 victory over the Sabres on Sunday.
The 2015-16 MVP didn't register a point Saturday, but he has points in six of his last seven contests. He has recorded five goals and 11 points during that span. It's been a relatively quiet season compared to last season, but Kane is averaging over a point per game and just hit the 20-goal mark. He has at least 20 goals in all 10 of his seasons and is on pace for his third 80-point campaign.
Kane stayed hot Saturday, scoring his 19th goal of the season and adding two helpers in a win over the Oilers.
That's a five-game point streak for Kane, who continues to dominate. He's scored in all but one of those games and is a huge reason the surging Blackhawks have picked up five consecutive victories. The 28-year-old is producing at a point-per-game pace this season and now has 60 career three-point games to his name. You already know what to do.
