Former Blackhawks player Patrick Sharp is selling Lincoln Park apartment

Former Chicago Blackhawks lefty Patrick Sharp and his wife, Abby, sold a Lincoln Park condominium on April 1 in an off-market deal for $715,000.

Sharp, 42, was a mainstay of the Blackhawks’ three Stanley Cup titles from 2010 to 2015 and was with the Blackhawks for 11 of his 15 seasons in the NHL. He retired in 2018 and after stints as an announcer and coach, he joined the Philadelphia Flyers’ front office last year.

Sharp purchased the apartment from the building’s developer in 2007 for $645,000. The apartment is located in a building with 16 units. Since the device was sold off-market, no details about it could be determined.

According to real estate sources, the Sharps had not lived in or rented the apartment in years. The couple even sold the apartment to their tenant.

The reason the Sharps haven’t lived in the apartment for so long is that in 2012 they paid $2.95 million for a six-bedroom, 7,300-square-foot townhouse in the Southport Corridor area of ​​Lakeview. They sold that mansion in 2021 for $3.14 million.

The Lincoln Park apartment had a property tax bill of $15,438 in the 2022 tax year.

Sharp isn’t the only former Blackhawks great who now skates elsewhere but still owns real estate in the Chicago area. Former Blackhawks right wing Patrick Kane, who now skates for the Detroit Red Wings, owns no fewer than three properties in the Chicago area: a downtown Chicago apartment he bought for $2.06 million in 2008, a four-bedroom, 4,776-square-foot Near North. Side apartment he bought in 2019 for $6.46 million and a Lake Forest mansion he bought in 2022 for $5 million.
