Keith contributed an assist and was a plus-3 Friday, earning first star honors in a win over Anaheim.

Another solid outing for Keith, who is now riding a four-game point streak, putting him at five goals and 15 points in 23 games on the season. He is an absolute workhorse and one of the most consistent fantasy defensemen around. Keep him rolling.

Keith missed morning's skate, but will be on the ice against the Avalanche on Wednesday night, CSN Chicago reports.

It might just be an off day as the Blackhawks are currently on their West Coast trip. Keith has two goals and 20 assists in 36 games played in his career against Colorado. After having a career high of 55 assists last season, he only has eight in 21 games and has mirrored the Blackhawks' on-and-off offensive struggles this season.

Keith scored his fourth goal of the season and had an assist, while logging a team-high 25:31 of ice time in Sunday's win over Dallas.

Keith now has 11 points in 18 games and appears destined to hit the 50-point mark for the second straight season. What's most impressive is Keith is shooting the puck a ton. He has 49 shots on goal thus far and is on pace to post the highest goal-total of his NHL career. What a stud.

Keith had a productive outing Thursday versus the Senators, finishing with an assist, two penalty minutes, four blocked shots and a plus-3 rating in the shootout win.

Keith certainly isn't struggling this season by any means, but his six points in 10 games haven't put him on par with some of the league's other Norris Trophy contenders from the blue line. He'll probably rank among the top-tier players at his position by the end of the campaign -- just don't expect a repeat of last season's 55 assists, which ranked tops among defensemen.

Keith delivered a goal and a power-play assist Thursday against the Stars.

Keith made a strong early case to defend last season's Norris Trophy nod, as he kicked off the game's scoring with less than a minute remaining in the first period. In addition, he would finish with a game-high 29:40 time on ice, but expect him to settle in closer to the 24-to-25 minute range most nights.

Keith finished the preseason with no goals and four assists in four games played.

Keith continues to be considered one of the league's top defensemen after he won the Norris Trophy last season. Although he only scored six goals he had a whopping 55 assists, leading all defensemen in assists in 2013-14. Look for Keith to remain a premier defender and should be one of the top defensemen taken in drafts this year.

Chicago struggled defensively against Los Angeles in the Western Conference Final.

The Kings ended up winning the series in Game 7 after Chicago conceded the lead three times. Their worst collapse though came in Game 2 when the Blackhawks had a 2-0 lead late in the second period and Los Angeles responded with six unanswered goals. "Obviously we gave up a lot of leads this series, especially," Duncan Keith said. "You go back to Game 2, we had the lead going into the third. I don't know. We played hard, but it just seemed like obviously you've got to give L.A. a lot of credit. They were resilient and never gave up. In Game 7, overtime, anything can happen."

The Chicago Blackhawks are understandably upbeat after closing the 3-1 series deficit against the Los Angeles Kings.

"We're excited but nothing's done yet. We understand that," Duncan Keith said . "We've given ourselves the opportunity to play in that Game 7, to have a chance to move on, and I think that's what we're excited about." Game 7 will be played Sunday night. If Chicago wins, this will be the second straight campaign they will have overcome a 3-1 series deficit. They were in that position against the Detroit Red Wings in the second round of the 2013 playoffs.
