On Friday night, the Knights held a special pregame ceremony for the three-time Stanley Cup champion as they sent his No. 88 up to the rafters at Budweiser Gardens.
Kane received a special new twig from the Knights during the pregame ceremony before his jersey went up to the rafters, and he now joins Rob Ramage (5), Dino Ciccarelli (8), Darryl Sittler (9), Brendan Shanahan (19), Brad Marsh (22), Rick Nash (61), Dave Bolland (91), and Corey Perry (94) as the only players in team history to have their jersey number retired.
The Blackhawks star got one more unexpected gift before he headed out for the night as a fan tossed a sombrero onto the ice, which Kane gladly put on one last time as he exited.
Kane has a chance to add to his already special weekend on Saturday night in Toronto as he enters the contest just two points shy of 1,000 career points.
