Patrick Kane is the captain of the hometown team this weekend at the NHL All-Star game in Nashville, but that doesn’t mean he got a warm welcome from the hometown crowd.
Kane, who is captaining the Central Division team – which includes four Nashville Predators – received a chorus of boos Saturday night as his name was announced at the Skills Competition.
Pacific division captain John Scott – Kane’s former teammate in Chicago – seemed to get a good laugh from the ordeal. Maybe he was just happy they weren’t booing him.
John Scott, not Patrick Kane, is All-Star game MVP favoriteKane will compete in three events during the skills event. The four divisions will face off in a 3-on-3 tournament Sunday.
