Patrick Kane makes NHL history, hits 1,000-point milestone with Blackhawks


Patrick Kane made history in Chicago on Sunday by becoming the 90th NHL player ever to reach the 1,000-point mark.

Kane needed one point against the Winnipeg Jets to notch 1,000 for his career and did just that by recording an assist on Brandon Saad's goal in the third period to extend his point streak to 10 games.

By joining the 1,000-point club, Kane is now part of some elite company:

— Kane is the seventh active NHL player to hit the 1,000-point milestone, joining Eric Staal (1,008), Evgeni Malkin (1,051), Patrick Marleau (1,183), Sidney Crosby (1,239), Alex Ovechkin (1,258) and Joe Thornton (1,497),

— Kane is the fourth player in Blackhawks history to accomplish the 1,000-point feat, joining Denis Savard (1,096), Bobby Hull (1,153) and Stan Mikita (1,497). 

— Kane is the 55th player in NHL history to record 1,000 points before his 1,000th game. It took him 953.

— Kane is the 10th American-born player to score 1,000 points, joining Pat Lafontaine (1,013), Brian Leetch (1,028), Doug Weight (1,033), Joe Mullen (1,063), Keith Tkachuk (1,065), Jeremy Roenick (1,216), Phil Housley (1,232), Mike Modano (1,374) and Brett Hull (1,391).

Kane is on pace to crack 100 points for the third time in his NHL career and is showing no signs of slowing down at age 31. It’s fun for Chicago to think about where he’ll finish when his career is all said and done, especially if he continues to perform at an elite level for years to come.
