The next milestone for Kane is point No. 900. He’s behind Blackhawks legends Stan Mikita (1,467 points), Bobby Hull (1,153), Denis Savard (1,096) and Steve Larmer (923).
Kane has also been one of the more consistent players in the NHL since his debut, trailing only Alex Ovechkin (887) and Sidney Crosby (856) in points during that time period.
While it was a historic night for Kane, the Blackhawks dropped the contest 7-3 as their struggles continue.
