Patrick Kane said he's still undecided on what he wants to do before the 2023 NHL Trade Deadline at 3 p.m. ET on March 3, but admits he's thought about the possibility of playing with a team other than the Chicago Blackhawks.
When asked which team would be the best choice for him, Kane said Monday, "I don't know. It's tough to decide if we're getting to that point yet, so I think there are definitely opportunities out there that are intriguing and could be exciting. We'll see."
The 34-year-old forward has played his entire 16-season NHL career for the Blackhawks.
"We talked about it in the summer with Pat (Brisson, his agent)," Kane said. "We'll just probably be taking it up to the deadline and making a decision. I mean, he's told me a few that have reached out to him. So yeah, we'll probably talk about that possibly too, if that's an option of getting traded and obviously figure out a team that could be the best fit. But we're not really at that point either."
The Blackhawks (15-29-4) are rebuilding and last in the Central Division with 34 points, also tied with the Columbus Blue Jackets for fewest in the NHL.
