The Chicago Blackhawks Patrick Kane is at it again. Or more likely, he’s been at it, but this time he’s been shutterbugged and published.  This is courtesy of Terez Owens. We have some fun pics for you. From the Terez Owens “tipster” comes this:

“I go to the University of Wisconsin-Madison and we had our biggest party of the spring this weekend called ‘Mifflin.’ Patrick Kane was here and was the drunkest person in Madison all day Saturday.

“Here is a pic of him passed out at our best bar, the Kollege Klub.”

Blackhawks finally comment on Patrick Kane party photos

The Chicago Blackhawks finally made a public comment today on the Patrick Kane party photos that caused such an internet stir a couple weeks ago.

Shocking no one, the organization said via GM Stan Bowman, that they are disappointed, and consider these photos to be really bad publicity.

Thus ends the bizarre public silence on the matter. And by the matter I mean Kaner allowing himself to appear in public apparently passed out drunk, rolling around on the ground with college kids and sporting a t-shirt made of a photo of himself that most people would consider embarrassing.

Not #88 though.

Bowman addressed the media on conference call; discussing recent re-signings.

Blackhawks cut off Patrick Kane access; Kaner on his way out?

Is Patrick Kane on his way out of town? Are the Chicago Blackhawks sick of his antics? The team is not answering any media requests at all regarding Kaner’s allegedly getting drunk, passing out at a bar, choking a woman, and hurling anti-Semitic slurs while getting kicked out of a party at the University of Wisconsin.

The Hawks aren’t even bothering to do damage control or enact the spin machine on this one. They won’t even allow “Kaner” to talk to the Chicago Tribune, let alone any other media outlets. Taking it further, they won’t even allow anyone from the team to even discuss Kane.

Does this mean it’s the end of the Kane era in Chicago?

The Trib’s Steve Rosenbloom believes so. He also believes the silence means the Hawks regard the 23-year-old NHL superstar as guilty of what multiple people accuse him of doing.

Could Patrick Kane’s Partying be Hurting his Game, Blackhawks?

Patrick Kane likes to go out and drink. That’s been well-documented, and not news to anyone. There are hundreds of pics of him out on the town debauching himself posted all over the internet. And that’s his choice. He’s an adult and can do whatever he wants.

But not everyone can follow the alleged lead of Mark Grace, who did his partying and supposed “slumpbusting” in Lincoln Park, the near north side etc. and still performed for the Chicago Cubs everyday.

“Kaner” is missing practice and that severely hurts his Chicago Blackhawks teammates, who are hurting themselves right now. They probably won’t make the playoffs and that means finger pointing will soon commence.

It’s that time of year again!!! The air is getting colder, and the sweaters are coming out.  The hockey sweaters that is.  Well maybe not today exactly in Chicago- it’s actually perfect and 75 out today. And it’ll be almost 80 this weekend. But eventually, probably a few games into the regular season, it will get cold, and it will be officially hockey season. Opening Day of the NHL 2010-11 season is here and today, we take a look at the Chicago Blackhawks, and what to expect for the season.

As you can see from the picture above, Patrick Kane and company, the reigning Stanley Cup Champions, are the toast of the town, America’s #1 sports town.
