from Scott Burnside of ESPN,
After developing a reputation as a party boy—especially after scoring the Stanley Cup-winning goal in Game 6 of the 2010 Stanley Cup finals—Kane appears to have embraced a more pastoral lifestyle.
It’s a small thing, but with his parents and a friend in town for the All-Star proceedings, Kane insisted that team staff working over the weekend join them for dinner.
“He’s not the kid in that way that he used to be,” Bowman said.
For a period of time, photos of Kane out on the town would regularly pop up in various places on the Internet, but those occasions seem to have waned. There are few reports of excessive socializing in Chicago or on the road.
“I don’t know. I think as time goes on you start to grow up a little bit,” Kane said Friday. “I probably learned that ever since I was 18 ‘til 23, now every year, I think I get a little bit more mature and start focusing on the things that really matter in life.
“For me, I think I’m still a kid. I mean everyone likes to have their fun and do some different things away from the rink. I’ve always kind of prided myself on being myself and trying to stick true to who I am and how I was raised.”
