Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane is expected to be cleared for full contact practice on Monday.

According to Pat Boyle of CSN Chicago, Kane, who has been out of the lineup since Feb. 24 with a fractured left clavicle, has benefited from on-ice workouts while Chicago concluded the regular season on a two-game road trip.

Boyle reports that Kane is probable for Game 1 on Wednesday when the Blackhawks visit the Nashville Predators.

Kane was on pace for a career year with 27 goals and 64 points in 61 games prior to being sidelined.
