Kane was more than adequate in his first game at center under Joel Quenneville.
Sounds like Kane might stick at center. He scored 27 goals and 73 points in 73 games for the Blackhawks last season. Expect similar production this season even though he is still recovering from offseason surgery.
“I went to the doctor (Monday) and just another good day, kind of checked up and skated for the first time without the splint today, so things are moving pretty good right now,” said Kane, who still is working his way back from July left wrist surgery. “Don’t know if we’ll rush for Wednesday or not, but we’ll see.”
Interesting to see if the team "rushes" Kane back from his injury or continues to play it safe. Even more interesting is where he will play. Yesterday he practiced between wingers Andrew Brunette and Marian Hossa -- a troika of interest to say the least.
