As ESPN’s John Buccigross tweeted on Friday morning, Patrick Kane is the Mayor of Dangle City. This was posted by Bauer Hockey on Sept. 12.The post New Patrick Kane Stickhandling Video appeared first on Committed Indians.
Patrick Kane has some of the sickest mitts in the NHL today and he’s showing them off in this new ad for Bauer’s new Vapor APX2 stick. Watch Kane demonstrate his nasty dangles in a display that might as well be NSFW for hockey fans. Holy moly, that was disgusting. Bauer probably shouldn’t have done the whole puck throw hitting the camera thing at the end because it’s clearly...
Patrick Kane dazzles on the ice with his magician-like stickhandling skills and hands that are impossibly fast, but his latest commercial for Bauer is truly something else.
In the video that the Blackhawks winger says took only 20 or 30 minutes to film, Kane showcases his ability of being able to control a puck. The advertisement begins with Kaner moving one puck around four others...
Patrick Kane read the same words from general manager Stan Bowman that Jonathan Toews did about Bowman’s confidence the two will re-sign with the Blackhawks when that time comes.
Color Kane optimistic.
Kane said it would be “ideal” if he re-signed with the Blackhawks – his contract like Toews’ ends after the 2014-15 season – but the right wing sounded like he’d rather...
NHL Training Camps are under way as teams gear up to dethrone the Chicago Blackhawks as Stanley Cup Champions. The 2013-14 NHL season is going to feel very different from seasons past for a number of reasons. Of course we will have to adjust to having a full, 82 game schedule again after last season’s stupid lockout, but that is the least of your worries as we gear up for some...
Marian Hossa was skating around the ice on Thursday looking very Hossa-like.
The right wing ended last season triumphant with another Stanley Cup but in pain from a pinched nerve in his back an injury that kept him out of Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final and hampered him the final three contests.
But on Thursday Hossa said he’s feeling good and hopes that will continue through...
In a new promotional video for Bauer’s new stick, the ApX2, Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane showed off his nasty dangles. As impressive as this is, he’s still not as skilled at stickhandling as Pavel Datsyuk.
from Nicholas L. Cotsonika of Yahoo,
Patrick Sharp is no LeBron James. First, he said it after the Chicago Blackhawks had won two championships, not before. Second, he said it in a quiet conference room at an NHL media event last week in New York, not in an arena at a pep rally like James once did in Miami. But the dream is the same, and the belief is the same, if...
