Duncan Keith, Jonathan Toews, Brent Seabrook will not play for Canada at 2017 World Championship

Duncan Keith, Jonathan Toews, Brent Seabrook will not play for Canada at 2017 World Championship

The Canadian trio turned down the opportunity to represent their country. Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook and captain Jonathan Toews will not play for Canada at the 2017 World Championship. The trio all won gold medals with Canada at the last two Olympic Games. Toews was the only one to play at the World Cup of Hockey last fall, recording three goals and five points in six games as the Canadians won gold. Keith was on Canada’s roster, but withdrew before the tournament to focus on rehabbing his knee. Toews isn't playing Worlds. Wouldn't delve into into...

Even facing elimination, Blackhawks must stand - and face the media

Often after games, Duncan Keith can be found slumped in the back of his stall in the Blackhawks dressing room, shirtless and sweat-covered while the veteran defenseman recovers from a long night at the office. But Keith's — and his teammates' — workday isn't quite done when the final horn sounds....

The Blackhawks have the stars, but the Predators’ 1st line has owned them

The Blackhawks have the stars, but the Predators’ 1st line has owned them

Ryan Johansen, Filip Forsberg, and Viktor Arvidsson have been unstoppable in Round 1. The Chicago Blackhawks were supposed to be the team with the indomitable superstars in this series. Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews, Duncan Keith, Niklas Hjalmarsson ... the names don’t get much bigger than that, especially when the bright lights are on. Well, apparently unless those names are Ryan Johansen, Filip Forsberg, and Viktor Arvidsson. That’s the Predators’ top line, something Blackhawks fans know quite well now after they thrashed their way through three straight dominant efforts against...

Here’s What Worked: Shutting Out The Blackhawks

Here’s What Worked: Shutting Out The Blackhawks

The Preds made a clear statement in the first two games of this series. They will need to make an even bigger one in the next two. For the second straight postseason, the Predators are up 2-0 on an opponent. Let’s ignore what happened last year for a moment and enjoy a 2-0 series lead on Chicago for the first time ever. In fact, the Blackhawks have never trailed 0-2 in a series when they’ve had home ice advantage in the Joel Quenneville era. This is uncharted territory for Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, Duncan Keith and company. For the Predators, tomorrow’s Game 3 is a golden...

Series Preview: Blackhawks’ Special Teams

Breaking down the Chicago Blackhawks, position by position. Today, their special teams. If there is a weakness anywhere on this Blackhawk team, it is their special teams play. Spotting the 19th ranked power play and the 24th ranked penalty kill, the Blackhawks are just plain bad at special teams. Now, that’s not to say that the Blackhawks don’t have the capabilities to capitalize on the power play. With players like Patrick Kane, Artemi Panarin, and Jonathan Toews in the fold, they do have their weapons. You also can’t forget Duncan Keith’s booming slapshot from the point....

Will a deeper Blackhawks defense let Duncan Keith play fewer playoff minutes?

Will a deeper Blackhawks defense let Duncan Keith play fewer playoff minutes?

The past two postseasons, Keith has taken on a monster-sized role. Will the Hawks ask that of him again? Do they even need to? There’s little doubt about which player will play the most minutes for the Blackhawks in the 2017 playoffs. That will be No. 1 defenseman Duncan Keith, who regularly logs the highest minute totals for the team, especially once the postseason rolls around. The past two years, Keith has seen his per-game minutes increase from around 25 in the regular season to over 31 in the playoffs. That’s about as many minutes as one NHL player can conceivably play, and the...

Blackhawks vs. Ducks final score 2017: Chicago gets shut out in 3rd straight loss

Chicago rested five top players as it gears up for the postseason. With the Chicago Blackhawks resting most of their top stars, they fell 4-0 to the Anaheim Ducks on Thursday night at Honda Center. Jonathan Toews, Marian Hossa, Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook all sat out and Niklas Hjalmarsson, who was in Chicago with his wife for the birth of their child, didn’t make the trip. Anaheim goaltender John Gibson made 37 saves for his 12th career shutout. Rickard Rakell and Ryan Kesler each had a goal and assist for Anaheim, while Corey scored a power-play goal and Chris Wagner also...

Blackhawks to rest several key players vs. Ducks

It’s not often that you see Marian Hossa, Brent Seabrook, Jonathan Toews and Duncan Keith huffing and puffing as they enter the dressing room late following a morning skate. But that’s what happened Thursday in Anaheim as the Hawks were getting ready to face the Ducks. That’s because those veterans,...

Blackhawks vs. Avalanche final score 2017: Chicago blows lead in 4-3 overtime loss

After starting the game with a 3-0 lead, the Hawks lose to Colorado in overtime. The Chicago Blackhawks lost in overtime to the Colorado Avalanche 4-3 in the Pepsi Center on Tuesday night. Chicago (50-22-8) CLEARLY missed having Duncan Keith and Niklas Hjalmarsson in the lineup, as they struggled defensively allowing the highest amount of shots seen by an opposing team all season (51). Despite the goal-tending effort of Scott Darling between the pipes, the Hawks surrendered a three goal lead to fall in overtime. Here’s what happened: First Period Scott Darling was put to the test EARLY in...
