Patrick Kane has so many accomplishments racked up in his NHL career, it’s nearly impossible to list them all. He has won the Hart Trophy as the league MVP. He won the Conn Smythe Award in 2013 as the playoff MVP. Sunday night at the United Center, Kane added scoring 1,000 points in his career to his laundry list of accomplishments.

Kane joins Stan Mikita, Bobby Hull, and Denis Savard as the only Blackhawks to eclipse 1,000 points in their career. That’s pretty good company, as all three of those players are in the Hockey Hall of Fame, and each has his number hanging from the United Center rafters.

Patrick Kane has been the driving force to the Blackhawks since he entered the league. He helped power the team to three Stanley Cups behind his 123 career playoff points, which is fourth on the Blackhawks all-time list.

Kane also becomes just the tenth American-born hockey player to eclipse 1,000 points in their career. He joins the likes of Jeremy Roenick, Brett Hull, Mike Modano, and Keith Tkachuk. Kane is the youngest American-born player to accomplish this feat.

When it’s all said and done, Kane will likely go down as both the greatest Blackhawk of all-time and the possibly the greatest American born hockey player of all-time. The 1,000-point mark is yet another milestone along the way to one of the greatest careers in NHL history.
