Patrick Kane has been a staple of Chicago Blackhawks hockey since 2007. And despite a rebuild beginning during his age 33 season, he wants to finish out his career in the Windy City.

“In the game of hockey, there’s not many guys that play their whole career with one team. So it would be a privilege and an honor to do that,” Kane said of his future with the Blackhawks.

With only one year remaining on his current contract, there is still plenty of uncertainty regarding Kane’s future. But newly hired general manager Kyle Davidson made it clear that the Blackhawks will keep Kane and Jonathan Toews involved in discussions regarding the future.

“Jonathan and Patrick are extremely important pieces to the organization. They’re definitely going to be brought into the loop. There won’t be any surprises on their end on what we plan on doing with the organization,” Davidson said during his introductory remarks.

It’s going to be a rocky road ahead for the Blackhawks in the immediate future. The roster needs significant upgrades to become competitive again and the prospect pool needs an influx of talent. That’s why Davidson indicated a rebuild — not a retool — is on the way.

Regardless, Kane wants to be along for the ride.

“I love Chicago, I love the city, I love the fans, the organization’s been amazing to me and my family. There’s really not much to [not] like here,” the star winger said.

While there will be rough days — no, years — ahead for the Blackhawks, Patrick Kane’s commitment to the organization is music to Chicagoans’ ears.
