The Chicago Blackhawks have lots of hype and expectations going into this season thanks to some offseason work by general manager Stan Bowman.
To top it off they’ll also get back captain Jonathan Toews at some point this season who will hopefully be 100% after opting out of last season.
Unfortunately it seems the other Hawks cornerstone piece might not be 100%.
While taking part of the NHL’s media day, Patrick Kane revealed he’s dealing with an injury that goes back to last season.
"It's something that I worked on all summer, so it's been, I don't want to say frustrating, but it's been like nagging me a little bit," Kane said. “We're at the point now where I think it's finally starting to turn the corner and seeing some progress."
"Obviously, I have different conversations with doctors and the training staff, so I'm sure we'll kind of readjust it. But to me, there's no worries going into camp."
Despite dealing with the unidentified issue, Kane played in 56 games last year and registered 66 points.
