While he’s the best player on the Blackhawks roster, measuring where he stands in the grand scheme of the NHL is an interesting discussion. Some harp on Kane’s overall game and lower his value because he is a non-factor defensively. If you’re like me, you believe Kane is one of the top players still in the league and one of the ten best forwards in the NHL. He doesn’t make $10.5M to play defense. The one thing that makes him stand out amongst the rest of the forwards in the NHL are his hands and his abilities controlling the puck.
Now in the upcoming release of EA Sports’ NHL22, Kane will have the best set of hands in the game.

Kane is one of four Blackhawks players that received ‘Zone’ abilities in the newest NHL22 feature called ‘X-Factors’ where NHL superstars will have abilities that make them standout from the rest of the league. Kane’s ‘X-Factor’ is called “Put It On A String,” which provides him with elite stick-handling skills.
But I mean, are we surprised?
