Duncan Keith (knee) was on the ice again on Sunday.

Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman said back on Sept. 15 that Keith's knee injury wasn't anything "to be alarmed about" and so far that seems to be a fair assessment. "The first day, Duncs, he got through the practice no problem. He didn’t have any issues. Talked to him the next day, the festival game day, and he said he was fine. Today was a little tougher day for defensemen, so we were asking a lot of them. There was a lot of 1-on-1, 2-on-1s, 2-on-2s. Duncs said after practice the forwards had it off and the D had the work day today. But he responded well afterwards," Blackhawks assistant coach Mike Kitchen said. "He even asked if he could come out for the other practice, but we said no." The next step is to see if Keith participates in any preseason games.

Duncan Keith (knee) participated in the first day of Blackhawks practice on Friday.

The knee injury forced Keith to back out of the World Cup of Hockey. "Well, today was the first skate," he said. "I've been skating a little here this month, just trying to get going, trying to take it one day at a time." We still don't know if Keith will be ready for the regular season opener on Oct. 12, but expect him to be an impact defenseman as soon as he returns to the lineup.
