Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane was honored for his record-breaking point streak prior to puck drop between Ottawa and Chicago at the United Center on Sunday night.

Kane’s 26-game point streak, which ran from Oct. 17 to Dec. 13 broke the Blackhawks record of 21 games previously held by Bobby Hull.

He also set a new record for the longest point streak by a U.S. born player beating the 18-game mark held by both Eddie Olczyk and Phil Kessel.

The 27-year-old’s streak was the longest in the NHL since Mats Sundin registered a point in 30 consecutive games during the 1992-93 season while with the Quebec Nordiques.

Kane had 16 goals and 24 assists during his streak.
