Video: Patrick Kane is the face of USA Hockey

Jun 12, 2013, 10:05 PM EDT

While there are some other great players wearing the red-white-and-blue, many believe that Patrick Kane is the “face” of this generation of American hockey.

(Inevitable joke: as long as he’s not the hair and sideburns …)

Kane came up huge by scoring a hat trick to eliminate the Los Angeles Kings in the third round, which seems like business as usual for the big-game player. Still, the 24-year-old believes that he’s matured since making big plays (and generating big controversy) in earlier in his career.

The video below captures his growing excitement regarding playing for the U.S. Olympic team and his growth in general:
