The Blackhawks placed Keith (groin) on injured reserve Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Keith will be eligible to return whenever he's deemed fit to play, but at this point there's no telling when that might be. Slater Koekkoek will continue to occupy a top-four role until Keith or Olli Maatta (illness) is ready to return.

Keith (groin) will miss Chicago's next two games at a minimum, Eric Lear of the Blackhawks' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Keith will miss Thursday's matchup with Boston and Friday's game against New Jersey, but it sounds like the Blackhawks are still holding out hope that he'll be ready to return Sunday against Arizona. Slater Koekkoek will continue to round out Chicago's depth at defense until Keith is ready to return.

Keith (groin) is ruled out for Monday's matchup against the Blues, Tracey Myers of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The team didn't provide any further details about Keith's timeline for return besides the fact that he'll miss a second straight game. Since the Blackhawks are up against the salary cap, they won't recall another player and will opt to roll out 11 forwards and six defensemen for the divisional clash.

Keith took a maintenance day Thursday ahead of Friday's game against the Avalanche.

Keith recorded two shots on goal and two blocked shots during 24:03 of ice time in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Sabres.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran blueliner is struggling to ink the scoresheet, as he's pointless in the last five games and is on an unimpressive 25-point pace. While Keith continues to log plenty of ice time, he's generated just five shots over the last five games. His fantasy value should come around at some point due to his place on the top power-play unit, but it is concerning that Keith starts just 47.2 percent of his shifts in the offensive zone.

EDGE Analysis

Keith's tally at 18:06 of the third period brought the Blackhawks within a goal before Timo Meier erased the hope of a comeback. The 36-year-old defenseman now has points in three straight games, giving him five points in 14 contests overall. Keith has added 30 blocked shots and 10 PIM this year.

Keith took a maintenance day Wednesday ahead of Friday's game against the Blue Jackets.

EDGE Analysis

Keith has averaged over 24 minutes of ice time per contest thus far this season, so he's just getting an extra day of rest ahead of Friday's contest. The two-time Norris Trophy winner has picked up two assists while posting a plus-3 rating in four games this campaign.

Keith registered an assist, two blocked shots and three shots on goal in Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Kings.

EDGE Analysis

Keith has collected 38 points in 78 games this season, as well as 136 blocks and 128 shots on goal. It's not unreasonable to think Keith could reach 40 points after missing that mark last year. He'd need two points over the final four games of the season to do it.
