Duncan Keith is still looking for his first goal of the 2017-18 season.
Keith hasn't found the back of the net in 42 games dating back to last campaign and that includes the playoffs.

"Just keep on going, keep playing the game, and eventually they'll come." Keith has 69 shots and 14 assists in 28 games this year. Dec 8 - 10:32 AM

Duncan Keith would like to keep playing until he's 45-years-old.

Keith is 34-years-old right now, so he's still a far ways off from accomplishing that goal. "Eleven more years," Keith said. "I feel like I’m 22 right now. I do. I’m 34 and I feel great. I feel better than I did at times when I was 27, 28." At the least, he doesn't have to worry about contract issues for quite some time. He signed a 13-year, $72 million contract with Chicago that runs through the 2022-23 campaign. Keith has 10 assists in 20 games this season while averaging 25:09 minutes per game.

Duncan Keith was unavailable for another practice due to an illness.

It was anticipated that Keith would be able to play on Saturday despite the bug, but given that he's now missed back-to-back practices we're going to err on the side of caution and list him as day-to-day. He has no goals and 10 assists in 19 games this season.

After being shut out in Game 1, the Blackhawks know they have to find a way to make life more difficult for Preds goalie Pekka Rinne.

"That's no secret in playoff hockey, that it's always going to be those greasy goals that aren't always pretty plays," defenseman Duncan Keith said. "It comes down to having a little more determination and, like (Quenneville) said, that desperation — pick it up a bit. Maybe that'll be the difference." The Blackhawks will look to even up the best-of-seven series at home on Saturday night.
Apr 15 - 9:36 AM

Duncan Keith will not play Thursday night.

Chicago's resting a number of its key players, so this isn't too significant. Keith's absence is a bit more noteworthy than most though given that he was also held out of Tuesday's game.
Apr 6 - 4:33 PM

Duncan Keith won't play in Tuesday's game against the Colorado Avalanche.

Keith isn't believed to be nursing a serious injury, but with the division wrapped up, the Blackhawks can afford to give him the night off. Niklas Hjalmarsson (personal) will also sit out tonight. Michal Rozsival and Michal Kempeny will play instead. Jordin Tootoo, Dennis Rasmussen and John Hayden will watch the game from the press box.
Apr 4 - 8:39 PM

Duncan Keith continued his march towards the 50-assist mark with an assist during Sunday's 4-2 win over the Wild.

Keith picked up his 41st helper and 46th point of the campaign, leaving him that much shy of his third 50-assist and 50-point plateaus. Simpy remarkable.
Mar 12 - 3:53 PM

Duncan Keith played in his 900th career game on Friday.

Keith has played all those contests with the Chicago Blackhawks. Keith was drafted in 2002 and didn't break into the NHL until 2005, but since he started his NHL career he's been a mainstay with the Blackhawks and hasn't been hampered much by injuries. In fact, ignoring the lockout shortened campaign, he's appeared in at least 67 contests in each season. He's also appeared in at least 75 games in eight of 10 campaigns, excluding the lockout shortened campaign and this one, where he will likely at least reach the 75-game mark again but isn't there yet.
