Patrick Kane recently showed up at a local men’s league game in his hometown of Buffalo, NY and, we’ll let you guess how many points he racked up. If you guessed ten, well, good job reading the title. That doesn’t make Kane’s game any less impressive.
TSN reports that a box score released from the men’s league game had Patrick Kane down for 5 goals and 5 assists. His primary benefactor? Vinny of the ECHL’s Utah Grizzlies. Scarsella potted 7 goals and 2 assists in the Piranha’s 13-5 win over the Essex St. Pub men’s team. Scarsella attended Canisius College in Buffalo and played alongside former Buffalo Sabre Cory Conacher.
It’s quite the men’s league that sports professional players from various ranks, but to attract one of the best players in the world is a treat for that rink. It’s hard to imagine your average NHL player backpedaling fast enough to keep up with Kane when he’s at a full sprint, let alone your average Joe.
If Kane wasn’t such a famous name, there would probably be some kind of objection, but the gentlemanly rules of hockey dictate that the best man wins. In the case of this particular game, the best man not only won, he took everyone to school in so doing.
