Patrick Kane, the New York Rangers’ latest signing, expressed his gratitude after making his debut for his new team on Thursday night at Madison Square Garden. Kane was unable to score during 19:36 of ice time in what was a 5-3 defeat for the Rangers to the Ottawa Senators.

“My first game as a Ranger was a pretty cool experience. Obviously, I would’ve liked to play a little bit better and come out with the win. But hopefully, it’ll come. I haven’t played in a little bit. Maybe a little bit rusty,” Kane stated.

Experiencing a warm welcome from the Rangers fans, Kane expressed his enthusiasm to acclimate to his new team. The 34-year-old winger emphasized that he remains eager to adjust to his new team and build strong partnerships with his teammates.

Kane noted the importance of the Rangers’ next game against the Boston Bruins on Saturday, after which the team is set to have four days off before their next game. The Rangers’ new star player stated that he intends to use the time off to settle in and improve his performance for his new team.
