Blackhawks Introduce Kane

His chance could come as early as next season.

Kane was taken by the Blackhawks with the first pick of last Friday's N-H-L draft. He was introduced to the city today.

He donned a Number 88 Blackhawks jersey and said he welcomes whatever pressure comes with the hype and expectations.

The 18-year-old player came to town with impressive scoring totals in junior hockey and the belief that he can put up similar numbers on the big stage.

The Blackhawks are in desperate need of an offensive force after finishing with the second-fewest goals in the league last season.

Kane led the Ontario Hockey League in scoring with 62 goals and 83 assists in 58 games with the London Knights.
