Franchise forward Patrick Kane has revealed that he expects to be able to finish his NHL career the way it started, with the Chicago Blackhawks.
The Blackhawks, 1250/1 win the Stanley Cup in 2021/22, had a goal and assist from 33-year-old Kane on Thursday to help beat the Edmonton Oilers 4-3 in overtime.
Kane has spent his entire 15 season NHL career with the Blackhawks, lifting the Stanley Cup three times with the organisation in 2010, 2013 and 2015.
This season, he leads Chicago with 55 points (17 goals, 38 assists) in 51 games.
In a total of 1,080 regular season games, the dynamic winger has amassed 1,143 points (421 goals, 722 assists) and in the playoffs he has 132 points (52 goals, 80 assists) in 136 appearances.
Over that time, Kane has also won several individual awards, notably the Conn Smythe Trophy as the most valuable player of the Stanley Cup Playoffs in 2013, the Art Ross Trophy as the NHL leading scorer in 2015/16 and that same season, the Hart Trophy as the NHL's most valuable player. He also won the Calder Trophy as NHL rookie of the year in 2007/08.
The American has one season remaining on the eight-year contract which he signed with the Blackhawks in July 2014.
Chicago (20-27-8) are seventh in the Central Division.
Kane said to the media: "There's probably a lot of time to determine what's going to happen in that regard, but let's be honest, I love Chicago, I love the city, I love the fans, the organisation's been amazing to me and my family.
"In the game of hockey, there's not many guys that play their whole career with one team. So, it would be a privilege and an honour to do that."
