Blackhawks president John McDonough believes that Patrick Kane is “in such a good place right now,” and he doesn’t just mean Chicago.
In a candid interview with the Chicago Tribune, the Blackhawks executive opened up about a 2015-16 season that he believes might have been the most difficult of his career.
As much as falling in the first round to the St. Louis Blues constitutes a “culture shock” for McDonough, the sexual assault allegations Kane faced must have factored into that tough year, even if charges weren’t pursued and the NHL considers the “matter closed.”
” … I want him to succeed and not just on the ice,” McDonough said. “He’s in such a good place right now. He looks great, looks clear and healthy. I think he has good relationships and is on a good path.”
(Apparently he’s also slated to move out of Trump Tower into a single-family home, so do with that what you will.)
