After signing a one-year deal with Detroit last year, Kane still performed at a high level. He only appeared in 50 games – the fewest he has played in a non-lockout season – and his average time-on-ice of 18:23 was his lowest since his rookie season in 2007-08.

But the former Calder, Ross and Hart Trophy winner still scored 20 goals in the 2023-24 season with Detroit. That was the 16th time in 17 seasons he has reached that mark. He also tallied 27 assists to finish sixth on the team in points.

We will see if a Kane signing makes any team’s futures odds shift at Michigan sportsbook apps for the 2024-25 season.

Who Might Sign Patrick Kane?

Of the seven teams we list above as potential destinations for Kane, four of them are playing in the conference finals for berths in next month’s Stanley Cup final. The top two just saw their seasons eliminated in the last round. 

The only outlier is the Buffalo Sabres, Kane’s hometown team. The Sabres are the youngest team in the NHL, according to Left Wing Lock. Perhaps Kane’s experience and leadership could help Buffalo get over the hump and end the NHL’s playoff drought (13 seasons). The last time the Sabres made the playoffs came in 2011 when Kane was just in his fourth season with Chicago and well before top NHL betting sites were legal and regulated in Michigan.

If you’re looking for a team that’s off the board, then you might want to look at his old team. Reports last week indicated that the Blackhawks are at least considering making their former legend an offer. Chicago traded Kane during the 2022-23 season as they looked to rebuild, but maybe he could come back and mentor last year’s No. 1 overall pick, Connor Bedard.

Kane likely won’t be one of the first players signed when the window officially opens. Instead, he might be the alternative a team seeks if they lose a significant contributor. Kane wouldn’t be a replacement for Florida Panthers sniper Sam Reinhart, who is coming off a 57-goal regular season. However, he could be in play for Dallas if the Stars can’t get Matt Duchene to agree on a deal.
