Patrick Kane: Broadway’s ‘Showtime’ Eyes Comeback
Last season, Patrick Kane made a splash on Broadway, albeit briefly. In his 19-game sojourn with the Rangers, Kane racked up 12 points (5 goals and 7 assists). He continued to dazzle in the postseason, despite battling an injury that later needed hip surgery. Originally, Kane was expected to be off-rink until January, but guess what? He’s ahead of schedule.
Kane mused, “Could I come back early? Yeah, probably. But is it wise? Better to fully recover and hit the ice at more than 100% then to rush back.”
So, where does that leave us? Will Kane pen a new deal, perhaps a one-year contract with a contender? NY sports betting sites are buzzing with speculation and odds on his next move. Keep an eye out; the Dallas Stars, Boston Bruins, Colorado Avalanche, and New York Islanders are among the teams showing interest. But the Rangers could be in the mix too, given Kane’s fondness for New York.
