Keith failed to exceed the 40-point mark for the first time since the shortened 2012-13 campaign this season, totaling just two goals and 32 points in 82 contests.

EDGE Analysis

It was a disappointing year for the Blackhawks offense as a whole, but Keith's drop off was especially notable, as he just racked up six goals and 53 points in 80 games a season ago. There's reason to believe Keith's numbers will rebound if the Blackhawks are able to improve their power-play output in 2018-19, but the 34-year-old blueliner probably shouldn't be counted on for high-end offensive production at this stage in his career.

Keith tallied two assists in a 5-4 overtime loss to the Blues on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

These helpers give Keith 30 of them on the season, but scoring has been hard to come by for the veteran defenseman recently. In his 20 games previous to this one, he managed only four points. Of course, it's also been noted repeatedly that the 34-year-old has only managed one goal on the year in what has now been 73 games. At this rate, Keith is going to fail to hit the 40-point mark in a full season for the first time since the 2007-08 campaign.

Keith picked up an assist and fired two shots on goal in Thursday's 7-2 loss to the Sharks.

EDGE Analysis

It was nice to see Keith mark the score sheet, but he hasn't been living up to his lofty standards recently, as he's only amassed one goal and one assist in his last 13 games. The veteran blueliner's owners will hope Thursday's contribution is a sign of things to come rather than an anomaly.

Keith dished out a pair of helpers and added four shots on goal in Thursday's 4-2 loss to Vancouver.

EDGE Analysis

Keith continues to distribute the puck at a high level despite an inability to light the lamp, as he's now racked up 25 assists without a goal through 51 games. The career 4.5 percent shooter is bound to break through at some point after failing to light the lamp with any of his first 121 shots this season.

Keith has zero goals in 49 games despite putting 116 shots on net.

EDGE Analysis

You have to assume eventually Keith is going to light the lamp. The fact he's put this many shots on goal and hasn't scored yet is frankly surprising. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, the veteran's assists have started to dry up as well. He only has one point in his last seven contests.

Keith dished out two helpers -- one on the power play -- in Tuesday's 8-2 win over the Senators.

EDGE Analysis

Keith still hasn't scored a goal this season, but he does have 22 assists in 42 games. That production puts the veteran defenseman on pace to hit 40 points for the ninth time in the past 10 campaigns, with the only exception coming during the lockout-shortened 2012-13 season.

Keith garnered an assist in Chicago's 5-1 victory over Winnipeg on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Keith rifled a puck from the blue line that was deflected into the back of the net by Nick Schmaltz. The helper -- his 15th of the year -- ended a five-game pointless streak for the defenseman. While the veteran may not be a prolific goal scorer, fantasy owners were likely hoping he would have notched his first of the year by now.

Keith (illness) will be in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Penguins.

EDGE Analysis

Keith didn't practice Thursday or Friday due to a "minor" illness, but he was never in serious danger of missing Saturday's contest. The veteran blueliner will skate in his usual spot on the Blackhawks' top pairing and first power-play unit against the Penguins.

Keith has been under the weather, though Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said it's "just a bug but not serious," Tracey Myers of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

EDGE Analysis

It doesn't sound like Keith will miss Saturday's road game against the Penguins, but it will be worth checking back to make sure he'll be ready. Keith dropped two assists on the Rangers en route to a home win Wednesday, so hopefully the illness doesn't disrupt his momentum.

Keith had two assists in a 6-3 win over the Rangers on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Keith has 10 points now, but they are all assists. Additionally, he only has three of those helpers over his last 10 games. Keith hasn't put a shot on goal in his last two contests, and that won't help him light the lamp.
