TEAM NOTES
MILESTONE MAN: With his second four-point game (1G, 3A) of the season on Tues., night, Patrick Kane eclipsed the 30-point mark (9G, 21A) within
20 or fewer team games for the second time in his career (2015-16) … He is the first player in franchise history to accomplish that feat since Denis
Savard did it four times between 1981-82 and 1988-89 … He is two goals away from becoming the fourth Blackhawks player in franchise history to
record 400 goals with the club … Additionally, he can become the 10th active NHL player, ninth US-born player and the 100th NHLer to hit the 400-goal mark … Kane is also seven games away from the 1,000th of his National Hockey League career … Kane shares fourth in the league with 30 points and shares third with 21 helpers during the 2020-21 campaign.

YOUNG GUNS: Brandon Hagel became the fifth Blackhawks rookie to notch their first career National Hockey League marker this season on Tues.,
night … Pius Suter and Philipp Kurashev are first and second among rookie goal scoring leaders during the 2020-21 campaign … Suter is third with 11
points and Kurashev shares fifth with nine points … Chicago leads the NHL with 16 goals and 32 points from rookies this season.

CAT ATTACK: Alex DeBrincat shares 10th in the league with nine goals during the 2020-21 campaign … He is four goals away from tallying the 100th of his NHL career … He could become the 14th player in team history to debut with the team and need 300 or fewer career games to register 100 goals
… DeBrincat has four goals and six assists in nine career games vs. CBJ.

POWER-PLAY PROWESS: The Blackhawks share the National Hockey League lead with a 33.3 percent power play percentage this season … They
have scored a PPG in 16 of 20 games this year … Chicago has scored two or more PPGs in four games during the 2020-21 campaign … Last season
they accomplished that feat only three times in 70 regular-season games … Kubalik’s 11 power-play points share fourth in the NHL … Kubalik had eight
PPPs (4G, 4A) during his rookie season … The club’s 21 PPGs share the league lead.
