Athlete Profile: Patrick Kane

Team USA forward and 2 time Stanley Cup champion, Patrick Kane, knows about pressure and even more, performing in those moments.  But these Olympic were different for the Buffalo native as he was held to just 4 points in 6 games, all of which were assists.  But Kane is not pointing any fingers and takes the brunt of the responsability for his lack of production and team USA's lack of success stating "I wasn’t good enough. I wasn’t good enough to help the team win a medal. 
Obviously, I was expected to do a lot more. When you come over 
here and put up zero goals and four assists in six games, that’s not the numbers you want to see. Definitely disappointing.’’ As a leader of the USA hockey team, Kane will likely be back on the team in four years hopes to lead the team to greater success then in the 2014 Sochi games.
