Points product of consistent play for Kane

Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane tries not to pay attention to how many points he has and where he is among the league’s leaders. He’s been around long enough to know his play has a tendency to get off track when his mind is wandering to those areas. What’s best for him and his statistics is concentrating on the task at hand. “I’ve kind of learned from experience, especially in this league, if you get into a situation where you start thinking about points and numbers and where you are as far as stats and points go, you’re only going to get yourself in trouble,” said...

Blackhawks gearing up for 'new season'

LOS ANGELES -- The last time the Chicago Blackhawks exited an All-Star break, they lost their next seven games. It wasn’t a stretch to believe the downturn actually began with them dropping their final two heading into the All-Star weekend. This time around, the Blackhawks took a two-game win streak into the hiatus. Is it possible that momentum might carry over, too?

From physical strength to puck possession to defensive reliability, he’s proven to be a solid top-6 forward at an early age for one of the league’s premier teams. Expectations have been placed higher than that, though. While there were spurts during his first two seasons when he showed he could be a game-changer and produce offensively, the thought has often been Saad is capable of even more considering his age and ability.
