Blackhawks

Blackhawks

Patrick Kane and Duncan Keith were named to the NHL's All-Decade First Team presented by NBC Sports. NHL commissioner Gary Bettman informed Kane of the news prior to the NHL All-Star Skills Competition on Friday night. Kane joins forwards Alex Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby. Keith joins defenseman Drew Doughty with Marc-Andre Fleury in net. 

Here’s a look at the core members of the Blackhawks and the three-time Stanley Cup champs’ other achievements:

It’s always “Showtime” when Kane touches the puck, not because of what he’s already accomplished, but because of what else he can do. 

Kane, 31, recorded his 1,000th NHL point off an assist in Sunday’s 5-2 win over the Winnipeg Jets. He has a total of 1,001 career points (381 G, 620 A) after scoring a goal against Joel Quenneville’s Florida Panthers in a 4-3 loss on Tuesday.

Kane, the No. 1 pick in the 2007 NHL Draft and a nine-time NHL All-Star, has won a Calder trophy (2008), a Conn Smythe (2013), a Hart (2016), a Ted Lindsay (2016) and an Art Ross (2016). He also won an Olympic silver medal in 2010, losing to Keith’s Team Canada. 

Keith has been one of the best defensemen in the NHL throughout his 15 seasons with the Blackhawks. The blueliner has 597 points (99 goals, 498 assists) and a +/- rating of +153 in 1,119 games with Chicago. 

Keith has won a Conn Smythe (2015), two Norris trophies (2010, 2014) and two Olympic gold medals (2010, 2014). The 36-year-old was grabbed by Chicago at No. 54 overall in the 2002 draft and is a four-time All-Star.
