Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane scored in the second period against the Winnipeg Jets on Friday to give him 40 goals in a season for the first time in his NHL career.
Kane scored with 2:38 remaining in the period. He had one goal in his past 10 games.
Kane is tied for second with Dallas Stars forward Jamie Benn, who reached 40 goals for the first time in his NHL career on Thursday. Alex Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals began the night with 44 goals to lead the League. Kane leads the NHL with 96 points.
Kane's previous single-season high was 30 goals in 2009-10, his third NHL season. The 27-year-old has 245 goals in 654 regular-season games.
He is the first Blackhawks player to score 40 goals in a season since Tony Amonte had 43 in 1999-2000.
