Patrick Kane Bio

Born:November 19, 1988
Where:Buffalo, USA


Patrick Timothy Jr. Kane

”Baby-Face”Patrick Kane is currently the best American hockey player in the NHL. Not only is he an amazing hockey player, but he also has Top-Model looks and personality of a generous and humble kid-at-heart.

Teenager Training

Patrick grew up in Buffalo, and had a very supportive family to help him get better at hockey. His dad even built him an indoor hockey room with a real hockey net and boards so he could practice his shot. Patrick became so good that at the age of 14, he moved to Detroit to play three seasons in the Midwest Elite Hockey League. He lived with Pat Verbeek, then an N.H.L. player.

Perfect Patrick

Patrick is now a slick-skating and high-scoring right wing for the Chicago Blackhawks. He was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2007 NHL draft, one of only three American players taken No. 1 since 1995. He quickly became the savior of the slumping and almost bankrupt Blackhawks, winning the Calder Trophy as the league’s rookie of the year in 2007-8. The Blackhawks were able to finish above .500 for the first time in 6 seasons.

Patrick has now blossomed into one of the biggest stars in the NHL. It is obvious that he has made a huge impact in Chicago as the Blackhawks are now a favorite to win the Stanley Cup every season. The question now is when will Patrick be able to bring the Cup back to Chicago who hasn’t seen a Stanley Cup almost 50 years… the longest Cup drought for any team in the NHL.

Do you have an old tire you could start off practicing with? It helps you align your hands. I find it kind of hard to explain, but there are lots of great resources out there online if you search for them. :) To do a cartwheel stand in a lunge with your favourite leg (by that I don't mean you look at it and say "that's a nice leg" but that you favor that leg when doing things, you feel comfortable with it going first), knees bent slightly, and your arms straight up by your ears. Make sure your elbows are locked. You don't want to drop. Assuming you start with your right, reach forward with your right arm while kicking your left leg up at the same time. Your left hand should follow very quickly and as it touches the ground your right leg should also be off of the ground. You should pass through the handstand briefly and your left leg should reach the ground first with your right following it and you will finish in a lunge just as you started. Hand, hand, foot, foot. 1,2,3,4. There's a rhythm to it. Keep practicing and try to perfect not kicking around as you go.
