Duncan Keith posted an assist with a plus-1 rating, two blocked shots and a hit in Tuesday's 2-1 overtime win against Colorado.
Keith has managed just one goal so far through 67 games, but he has piled up 28 assists to go along with 33 hits and 124 blocked shots. It has been an ugly season for Keith's fantasy owners in leagues penalizing negative rating, too, as he currently sits with an unsavory minus-17. In pools which do not use plus/minus, Keith has been much better. Mar 6 - 11:59 PM

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.

"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.
