Kane has not yet confirmed if he will be joining them on their trip to Chicago.

Players are scheduled to be at Wrigle Field on Tuesday to greet Chicago Blackhawks alumni and see the first Blackhawks game in more than 40 years.

On Sunday, Blackhawks star Patrick Kane was spotted walking through the streets of Chicago with Blackhawks Hall of Fame defenseman Ray Bourque.
