Patrick Kane reached the 20-goal plateau on Wednesday night as part of a three-point performance in Chicago’s 4-2 win over Anaheim. He has hit that mark 14 times in his career, which ties him with Stan Mikita for the most in Blackhawks history.
Kane is currently sitting at 99 career three-point performances. His next three-point effort will make him the fourth player in Chicago franchise history to reach 100, joining Mikita (147), Bobby Hull (121) and Denis Savard (114).
Off the ice, the NHL invalidated Evgenii Dadonov’s trade from Vegas to Anaheim because Dadonov’s contract included a limited no-trade clause that had not been complied with. John Moore, Ryan Kesler’s and a conditional second-round pick in 2023 or 2024 have been reverted back to the Ducks. Dadonov is expected to be in the lineup for the Golden Knights on Thursday in what will probably be a bit of an awkward situation.
