Blackhawks Patrick Kane Comments on Potential Maple Leafs Trade

Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane put on a show on Sunday night as he led his team to victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs. Kane scored a hat-trick against the Leafs, as the two teams matched up for the second time in less than a week. After the game, nobody cared about his three goals and were more focused on the ongoing trade talks.

Kane was asked about a potential approval for a trade to the Leafs, and was rather candid to Sportsnet's Luke Fox:

I don't think there's really, at least that I know of, much discussion of that being an option. There's a lot of different reports out there, and not all of them are true. So, gotta be careful what you listen to. (On if he's leaving Chicago) I don't know. I think if I knew that, I'd probably make the decision already.

As of right now the Dallas Stars and Vegas Golden Knights are favorites with the New York Rangers, Boston Bruins and Edmonton Oilers as long shots. The Blackhawks have six more games before the trade deadline as Kane will need to decide if he's open to joining a new team.
