Patrick Kane underwent hip resurfacing surgery in June and is projected to make a full recovery within 4-6 months. However, NHL fans are curious as to which team he will play for and when he will return.
NHL rumors suggest that free agent Kane may return in late November or December. Multiple teams, including the Toronto Maple Leafs, are interested in signing him.
Will Patrick Kane sign with the Toronto Maple Leafs?
Dave Poulin was on Toronto’s local radio station TSN 1050 and stated that multiple teams will have interest in Patrick Kane as he is still a highly talented player.
Poulin went on to say in his radio hit that if his hip is all cleared up, the Toronto Maple Leafs should have a high level of interest in signing him.
Many Leaf haters may argue that Toronto lacks the salary cap space to secure a contract with Kane. However, history has shown that teams are capable of finding ways to sign desired players and shed salaries accordingly.
NHL trade rumors have the Leafs signing Kane to a one-year contract and not long-term.
