The Chicago Blackhawks have not cleared Patrick Kane (wrist surgery) for contact.
The Blackhawks stated that if they were in the middle of the season Kane would be able to play but with training camp just getting started, there is no reason to rush Kane back. He will participate in the two-a-day sessions but without contact at this time. Kane is still wearing a splint on his wrist but it is more precautionary at this time. "I've been shooting and stick-handling," Kane said. "It's still little stiff but other than that the bone and everything is pretty much healed. I'm pretty much ready (to play) right now. (Doctors) said it if was the middle of the season right now and I wanted to play, I could play." Look for a big season from the right winger as he could approach the 90 point mark if he can stay healthy.
