Patrick Kane’s career has seen a remarkable rise and fall.
The Boston Bruins winger has gone from being a highly-regarded prospect to a player that’s seen his career fall off precipitously in the last couple years.
He was traded by the New York Rangers in the 2016 offseason, then the Philadelphia Flyers and then the Minnesota Wild this summer.
Then came the lockout, which led to Kane having to miss the entirety of training camp.
Kane is currently on a five-game road trip and the NHL’s All-Star Game, and while his performance has improved, he hasn’t been as consistent as he could have been.
With that said, here’s a look at how much we know.
Kane had a very strong 2016-17 season Kane started the season with a bang, scoring 28 goals and adding 26 assists for 52 points in 57 games.
He led the NHL in scoring and finished second in goals and assists for the year.
He finished second on the team in goals (23), second in points (42) and first in power-play goals (7).
The 26-year-old scored his 100th NHL goal in a 3-2 win over the Winnipeg Jets on Oct. 22.
After going 5-for-10 on goal in the first period, Kane went 3-for and added a goal and two assists in a 4-1 win against the Anaheim Ducks on Oct.
“He was one of the best players in the league last year, but he was a big part of it.
I just think his attitude and work ethic and dedication and all the things he was doing on and off the ice really put the team over the top.
And now, he’s the guy who’s doing the best work on the ice and making the most of the opportunity.”2.
Kane has played well in the playoffs Kane’s first NHL playoff appearance came in the 2018 Eastern Conference Final against the Ottawa Senators, which he won 4-3.
He made 34 saves in the win.
Kane then scored in the shootout against the Philadelphia Kings in Game 4, helping the Bruins win 5-4.
Kane also had two assists and was plus-one in the Game 5 win against Detroit.
He went on to score a goal in overtime against the New Jersey Devils in Game 7, helping Boston take a 4.5-point series lead over the Devils.3.
Kane’s goals are up from last year’s numbers Kane had just eight goals in 60 games last season, but now he’s tied for second in the NHL with 44 points.
Kane leads all NHL forwards with eight goals, two behind Sidney Crosby, who is tied for fourth with 40 points.
The 31-year‑old was tied for third in goals among forwards with 39 in 2016-19, but has only scored six goals in the past two seasons.
He’s scored seven goals in his past four games, but his goal total has dipped to just four.4.
Injuries have limited Kane’s production Kane has missed six games in the second half of the season, including three games because of a shoulder injury.
His status for the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs remains unclear.5.
He is one of only a handful of players to score 40 or more goals for the Bruins in each of the last four seasons.
Kane, the first-overall pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, has scored 51 goals in 1,817 career games with the Bruins.
He had 48 goals in 3,069 career NHL games with Pittsburgh, Chicago and Washington.
He also had 56 goals in 7,764 career NHL playoff games with Washington and New York.
He has won two Stanley Cups with the Red Wings and was a two-time Cup champion with Boston.
He won his second Stanley Cup in 2012.6.
Kane led the league in goals, assists and points for the second straight season.
He tied for the lead with 49 goals in 82 games, and he finished with 39 points in 62 games.
In fact, Kane led NHL forwards in goals scored for the fifth straight season in 2017-18, which marked the first time he’s done it since 2011-12.
His 31 goals were fourth most in NHL history.
His 52 points were also third-most in NHL playoff history.7.
Kane started his career with the Boston Bruins, but missed his first season due to the lockout His first season in Boston, Kane scored 28 goals in 61 games and had 48 assists in 69 games.
But, as he got older and more consistent, he lost a step.
In his first full season in the Bruins organization, he was traded to the Montreal Canadiens in the offseason, and his scoring was down from his 2016-18 season, when he had 51 goals and 45 assists in 79 games.
Kane played just three games in Montreal during the lockout and was released.
He then played six games for the Pittsburgh Penguins, scoring a goal with two assists.
Kane was then traded to New York, where he was selected first overall by the Boston franchise in the
