The Patrick Kane sweepstakes have finally come to an end, as the three-time Stanley Cup champion signed a one-year deal with the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday, according to The Athletic’s Chris Johnston.
Kane took his time selecting his next team after undergoing offseason hip resurfacing surgery and ultimately felt the upstart Red Wings were the best fit. Detroit has exceeded expectations in 2023-24, sitting third in the Atlantic Division with 25 points.
Kane is coming off a down season by his standards, recording 21 goals and 57 points in 73 games split between the Chicago Blackhawks and New York Rangers.
Kane had alluded in the past to hoping to reunite with the diminutive sniper, notably last February ahead of the NHL Trade Deadline.
