Leave it to the Blackhawks to announce the trade of their superstar during a Chicago election night.

What happened: Patrick Kane waived his no-trade clause to help complete the deal that sent him to the New York Rangers.

The intrigue: Kane previously said he wanted to end his career with the Hawks.

Yes, but: The Blackhawks have publicly said they are in rebuilding mode and currently have one of the NHL's worst records.

Zoom out: For Chicago sports fans, the images of Patrick Kane raising the Stanley Cup over his head at three different downtown rallies will be forever etched in our collective memory.

💭 Justin's thought bubble: It was pretty cool watching the Hawks win cup after cup between 2010-2015. There's nothing that brings the city alive like a victory parade. So long, Kaner.
