-Kane:"You try to be the same person you really are. I love to have fun, I love to play hockey and I love to try to make people smile and get the fans out of their seats. I've always prided myself on being myself and trying to stick true to who I am and how I was raised. It has been a motto of mine my whole life — just be yourself."
