As Kane aims for Blackhawks record, Roenick marvels

NEW YORK -- Former Chicago Blackhawks star forward Jeremy Roenick thought he had seen it all from current Blackhawks star forward Patrick Kane, from the speed to the skill, the incredible hands and clutch scoring.

He was wrong.

Roenick, who has long considered Kane among his favorite players to watch, said he is seeing him do things with and without the puck this season that he has never done before. They're a big reason why Kane leads the NHL with 38 points, including at least one in 20 consecutive games. He can tie Bobby Hull's franchise record Thursday against the Ottawa Senators (7:30 p.m. ET; CSN-CH, RDS2, TSN5).

"He threw two body checks [Tuesday] night; he never throws body checks," Roenick said. "He's working harder off the puck to make sure he's putting himself in position to steal pucks and have the puck more.

"He's so focused."

WINNIPEG -- The Toronto Maple Leafs assigned goaltender Jonathan Bernier to Toronto of the American Hockey League on a conditioning assignment Wednesday.

The assignment will last 10 days, according to Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock. Bernier is 0-8-1 with a 3.28 goals-against average and .888 save percentage with the Maple Leafs. He was 21-28-7 in 58 games last season to go with a 2.87 GAA and .912 save percentage.

Babcock anticipates Bernier, 27, who has not played in the AHL since 2010 when he was a Los Angeles Kings prospect, will play four of a possible six games for the Marlies, who visit Rochester on Friday to start three games in three days.

The move offers Bernier a chance to assume a regular workload. He has played twice since Oct. 31, allowing four goals in each of the two starts.

Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane extended his point streak to 20 games with a power-play goal 5:21 into the second period of a 2-1 loss to the Minnesota Wild at United Center on Tuesday.

Kane is the first NHL player with at least one point in 20 straight games since Pittsburgh Penguins forward Sidney Crosby had a 25-game streak from Nov. 5 to Dec. 28, 2010, the Elias Sports Bureau said.
