Patrick Kane is in his sixth season with the Blackhawks, so it seems as if he has been around forever. But the electric forward is only 24. He can do it all, and has done a lot, but Kane says he won’t be satisfied until he does more.
Q – Welcome back, better late than never. Does it feel like nothing has changed?
A- Patrick Kane: You heard and read stuff about how people might be upset after the lockout. Then you saw that crowd we had for our opening night at the United Center. They were loud and really into it. Can’t say any of us were surprised, but we appreciate it. Chicago fans are the real deal. We realize if there are no fans, there’s no National Hockey League. And we’ve got the best fans.
Q – You had to for a brief time before the regular season started. What was Switzerland like?
A – It was a good experience. Interesting. I thought I would only be over there a couple weeks, so I just packed a small suitcase. A lot of rotating clothes, if you know what I mean. There was one washer and dryer where I was staying, but my mom, Donna, was with me for a while, which helped.
Q – Did you stay over there the whole time?
A – No, I came back twice. I played 20 games with Biel, and we were near Davos, the big ski resort. It’s a beautiful country. I stayed in shape by skating, and I was over there for Christmas with my girlfriend. That was nice, but when we got word that everything was settled, we were on the first flight back to Chicago.
My initial reaction
My follow up thought – Makes perfect sense. Chick’s LOVE a guy that is “spoken for”. Oh sorry girls, I have a “girlfriend”. Fishing with dynamite right there.Fucking Kane. Sly as a Fox.
