Kane to make Red Wings debut Thursday vs. Sharks
It's "Showtime" in Detroit.
Patrick Kane will make his Red Wings debut Thursday at home against the San Jose Sharks, the team announced.
The three-time Stanley Cup champion signed a one-year deal with a $2.75-million cap hit with the Red Wings on Nov. 28 after recovering from an offseason hip procedure. He'll become the third player in NHL history to play after undergoing hip resurfacing surgery, joining Ed Jovanovski and Nicklas Backstrom.
Kane, 35, recorded 57 points in 71 games last season split between the Chicago Blackhawks and New York Rangers. He racked up 92 points the year prior.
He's expected to play right wing on the club's second line, with former Blackhawks running mate Alex DeBrincat at left wing and J.T. Compher at center.
