Patrick Kane is now a UFA for the first time in his career, but recent news will put a serious damper on his attraction.

Kane Receives Hip Resurfacing Surgery



After a year full of minor injuries, things hit a tipping point for Patrick Kane. Per Elliotte Friedman, he has now undergone a hip resurfacing surgery.

Patrick Kane's representative, Pat Brisson, says Kane had a hip resurfacing today under Dr. Edwin Hsu. As is normal, follow-ups are planned, but roughly 4-6 months recovery is expected. Brisson says Kane «wants to play for a long time,» and doctors are optimistic that will happen




Sidelined 4-6 Months



The recovery time for this surgery could be as long as six months, and Kane will certainly miss the beginning of the season. It is safe to say his allure as a free agent has taken a hit.

It will be interesting to see where Kane ends up, and how much money he'll be putting away in 2023-24.
