By all accounts, Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews are more than just teammates on the Blackhawks. The two are inextricably linked thanks to parallel careers with the team that include bringing Chicago three Stanley Cup championships and signing identical $84 million contract extensions in 2014.

Now the two are set to cement their bromance off the ice, with Kane buying a $6.5 million condo in JDL Development’s No. 9 Walton, the same luxury condo tower where Toews bought a unit last year, sources told Crain’s.

The 25th-floor condo Kane reportedly bought at 9 West Walton Street in the Gold Coast has four bedrooms and covers 4,700 square feet.

While property records don’t yet identify a buyer, Kane has been rumored to be picking up a unit in the building since 2016, when the condo went under contract, according to Crain’s. And the buyer of the No. 9 Walton unit was represented by Coldwell Banker’s Chezi Rafaeli, who listed Kane’s Trump Tower condo for him until it was pulled from the market last year.

Kane would be the latest high-profile buyer in the building, joining a roster that also includes Chicago Cub Jason Heyward, former Bull Omer Asik, noted business executives, attorneys, real estate brokers and more.

The building has dominated the list of most expensive residential sales since late 2017, when Ken Griffin broke the record for residential purchases with the $59 million pickup of the tower’s top four floors. An unidentified buyer last month spent $11.3 million on a 31st-floor unit.
