BLACKHAWKS PATRICK SHARP & PATRICK KANE COVER MICHIGAN AVE MAGAZINE
Chicago Blackhawks Patrick Sharp and Patrick Kane team up to cover the November issue of Michigan Avenue Magazine. After their second Stanley Cup championship in the last four years, the hockey stars discuss both Cup victories, playing in Chicago, and their friendship. For the full interview, read on here. When talking about their relationship, here’s what the teammates had to say:
How would you describe your relationship?
PK: I’ve always felt like Sharpie has been a big brother to me, especially coming in as such a young kid [like I did]. He’s a guy who’s always messing around and having a good time, and one thing people probably don’t know is how serious he is about the game. When you see someone like that who has as much expertise as he has taking it so seriously, it makes you want get better as a player, too.
PS: Strictly professional. [Laughs] The same thing Kaner says—I treat him as a little brother. It doesn’t matter if we’re on a 10-game winning streak or a losing streak, coming to the rink I’m always having fun with Kaner, joking around, talking about things we’ve seen in the league or around Chicago. He’s a guy who likes to have a good time, but he’s really dedicated to the sport, and he doesn’t get enough credit for that. I consider him one of my better friends, and I’m glad I can play with him.
As part of the feature, Sharp and Kane also dressed up for a fashion shoot. They were sharply styled in a range of designs from Ralph Lauren, Gucci, Ermengildo Zegna, Facconable and Bonobos.
