Becoming a feared scorer in the National Hockey League takes a rare combination of skill, strength and confidence. And to do so at a young age takes something even more special. Whatever that is Patrick Kane has it in spades. What the Chicago right wing does not have is the imposing size of a Mats Sundin or Mario Lemieux. That makes Kane’s goal production all the more remarkable. When the Blackhawks made him the top pick in the 2007 NHL draft, some joked they were literally building from the bottom up. Little did fans know they would be cheering for Kane as he and one of the youngest teams in the league lead Chicago back to hockey’s promised land just three seasons later.A lot of things drive him, but what comes down to it is that he wants to be the best there is.
Happy 24th birthday, Patrick Kane!
