Patrick Kane Was Superman As He Won The NHL Breakaway Challenge

Patrick Kane won the NHL Breakaway Challenge while wearing a Superman cape and Clark Kent’s glasses. I’m not sure that’s 100% true to the Superman mythology, but we’ll let it slide because it was a part of the All-Star festivities. Unlike Superman, Kane wasn’t working alone. From NHL.com:

“Our PR guy, Brandon Faber, I told him about the idea,” said Kane, who won the event by receiving 47 percent of the fan vote via text. “He went out to a costume shop with my mom and dad, and they got the cape and got the glasses. They had some other ideas for sparklers on my skates, but I wasn’t going to try to burn myself on the ice out there. They did a great job of getting everything for me.”

I don’t recall Dwight Howard telling such a heartwarming story about his mother picking up a phone booth the night before the dunk contest.
