Rookie Watch: Kane Has Done It All In Brief Career
That' s some high praise coming from a Hall of Famer, but Chicago Blackhawks coach Denis Savard feels there is no argument in the universe that could shoot down his proclamation of Patrick Kane, the Blackhawks' 18-year-old rookie right wing.
"Because he has been," Savard explained." Simple as that."
Well, that didn' t take long now, did it?
"Right off the bat he showed it," Blackhawks General Manager Dale Tallon told NHL.com.
Kane has made all the necessary adjustments to tailor his game for the NHL, where the players are men, not boys, the game is quicker, and the physical play, especially in the corners and in front of the net, isn' t for the weak.
