Blackhawks' Kane says knee feels normal, skating without brace

Jerry Lai / USA TODAY Sports

After a knee injury kept Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane out of the last 12 games of the regular season, he scored 20 points in 19 games in the playoffs with the help of a brace.

Kane wore his knee brace for each game in the playoffs, and though it didn't seem to hamper his performance, he's looking to get rid of it as soon as he can.

Kane signed an 8-year, $84-million contract extension in July that kicks in next season, matching Jonathan Toews' extension.
