Patrick Kane is making history once again.

Kane reached 34 points (12 goals, 22 assists) in 42 fewer games than when Johnson hit 33 points.

At last year’s tournament, Kane was the first American to be named the most valuable player of the tournament with a U.S. single-season record 20 points (eight goals, 12 assists). The 31-year-old Kane has some competition for the record from young stars with Red Wings center Dylan Larkin and Flames winger Johnny Gaudreau. Larkin entered Wednesday’s game with 32 points (eight goals, 24 assists) in 41 games, while Gaudreau has 31 points (10 goals, 21 assists) in only 29 games.

Kane is still searching for the top of the podium at the international level in his senior career. He won silver at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver then took bronze as the team captain at last year’s World Championship in Denmark.
