American forward Patrick Kane increased his point streak to a franchise record 22 games as the Chicago Blackhawks defeated the Winnipeg Jets 3-1.
Kane, the first overall pick in the 2007 NHL entry draft and three-time Stanley Cup winner, earned an assist on Artemi Panarin’s empty-net goal with 106 seconds to go in the third period to maintain his point streak.
The 27-year-old Kane surpassed the franchise record set by Hall of Fame left winger Bobby Hull, who recorded a point in 21 straight games during the 1971-72 regular season.
Kane has 237 career goals but is a long way from Hull’s franchise record of 610. With 16 goals in just 26 games, Kane is on pace to become the Blackhawks’ first 50-goal scorer since Jeremy Roenick scored 50 in 1992-93.
