Patrick Kane always seems to come through when it matters most in the postseason. That rings true even when he’s not playing games in the NHL.
The Chicago Blackhawks star, and 2013 Conn Smythe Trophy winner, has been competing with Milli Vanilli in the high-level men’s Fattey Hockey League in his hometown of Buffalo, N.Y., this summer. After his valiant performance in the league’s final game, Kane was named the Most Valuable Player of the championship game.

Along with Buffalo Sabres center Zemgus Girgensons and New York Islanders winger Cory Conacher, Kane helped carry Milli Vanilli to a 6-2 victory over the Pet Shop Boys on Tuesday. Kane finished his season with 14 goals — 11th-best in the entire league.
But Kane wasn’t even the top scorer on his team. Vinny Scarsella, an ECHL player, led the league with 25 tallies. Milli Vanilli was a formidable bunch, so it’s no surprise they skated away with some hardware.
