Competing in his first Olympic Games at the age of 21, Kane is the youngest player on the U.S. roster.

The Chicago Blackhawks selected Kane with their first overall pick in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft. He became only the sixth American to be chosen with the first overall pick - 2010 teammate Erik Johnson was selected first by the St. Louis Blues in 2006.

At the 2008 World Championship his line, with Zach Parise and Phil Kessel, combined for 28 points (14-14-28) and 44% of the team’s total scoring in seven games. Kane’s seven assists (3-7-10) tied for the team lead with Paul Martin.

Kane was named to the 2007 World Junior Championship All-Star team, tying for the tournament lead with five goals and winning a bronze medal. He was also the leading scorer at the 2006 Under-18 World Championships winning his first international gold medal.

As a member of U. S. National Team Development Program from 2004 to 2006 he competed in 58 games. He broke the program’s single-season record for points (102) and tied the single-season records for goals (52, set by Team USA teammate Phil Kessel) and assists (50, set by Andy Hilbert).
