Patrick Kane celebrates his birthday again in Calgary

kanee.jpgCALGARY, Alberta -- Patrick Kane turned 22 on Friday. Last year, he celebrated his 21st with a goal and an assist in a 7-1 rout of the Calgary Flames.

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."

Yeah, someone hurry up and get him a birthday cake for the fine performance he turned in on birthday night. Horrible performance by him and the entire team...last year they won 7-1, this year they lose 7-2---go figure. Time for Bowman to start thinking of some trades---this bunch is weak, wont fight, wont even hit back and just arent as fast as they once were.

Duncan Keith should be up for the most unimproved award in the entire NHL so far this season....his performance is dreadful. Bench him a long while so he can let it sink in. Turtle Toews needs to be a leader and hit someone back when he's getting pushed around like he was last night. Hossa gets creamed, the Flame smiles about it on the bench and not a Hawk touches the guy? Q, you aint got the tools this year dude. You better be screaming in little Bowmans ear about the mess he's given you, and McDonut better start thinking about putting on his best Cub spin he can cuz Rocky isnt going to want to be seen walking the concourse of the UC with this kind of performance.
