Blackhawks

Patrick Kane reached an absolutely amazing milestone on Sunday night, becoming the youngest American-born player to reach 1,000 points for their career. 

He received lots of praise from around the hockey community on Sunday night, with many of his former teammates chiming in:

The London Knights, who retired Kane's jersey this week, made sure to honor Kane, who became the fourth London Knights Alumni to collect 1,000 NHL points:

And of course, the Blackhawks organization:

The moment was an extremely emotional one for Kane, who said that he will "never forget that moment."

Kane's special moment came amid a 5-2 Blackhawks win over the Winnipeg Jets that gives Chicago their fifth straight win and puts them three points out of the final wildcard spot in the Western Conference with a game in hand.
