Patrick Kane's Offseason Begins With A Black Eye, Taking A Girl Home From A Club

Oh Kaner. We take a lot of shit for giving you shit, but you keep giving us shit to give you shit for.

Kane went home to Buffalo after the Blackhawks were eliminated, but returned to Chicago last week because he missed "the life." That would entail getting a black eye under mysterious circumstances, attending a Bulls game, and bringing home a woman who got a little camera-happy.

On May 4th, Kane attended the Bulls' game 2 against Atlanta, where he was photographed with a shiner. It had been more than week since he played his last game, so the question immediately becomes where he got it.

To prove it to her friends (because who would believe Patrick Kane would drink and party, right?), she took a few photos of a sleeping Kane. And to end any doubt, she fished through his bags and found his boarding pass:

We won't use the pejorative "P-B" term, but Patrick Kane is like the Stanley Cup: every girl in Chicago gets a day with him.
