Now, he's one point shy of reaching 250 in his regular-season career and becoming the second youngest player in team history (Denis Savard is No. 1) from reaching that plateau.
"I guess I better go and get it tonight," Kane said after Friday's morning skate. "It's pretty cool, especially when you think of the Blackhawks, an Original 6 team. There have been a lot of great players."
Kane hasn't been victim of any birthday pranks -- at least not yet.
"To be honest with you, I don't know if any of the guys knew it was my birthday coming into today until this morning," Kane said. "I'll keep my head up for later."
Kane said he feels like a veteran despite still being the youngest player on the Hawks.
"He's still a young kid," forward Patrick Sharp said. "He's always drawing pictures and designing things on his white tape. So he's not getting too old or mature. He's still the youngest on the team so I can still mess with him
"He's doesn't wear Abercrombie & Fitch shirts to the rink anymore. He actually wears dress shirts and ties. His style had gotten a little bit better. He's been around the league for so long and played in so many big games that he handles himself like a veteran."
