Duncan Keith: The hurt blocker

He is a true warrior.

Missing teeth, broken fingers, even the flu can’t keep Duncan Keith from lacing up his skates.

The 28-year-old Blackhawks defenseman seems invincible.

Who else could withstand a puck to the mouth, knocking out seven teeth? Unfazed by the cringeworthy injury, he showed no pain as he helped his team hoist the Stanley Cup in 2010.

“I’d do it all over again, if I could, to win the Cup,” Keith said matter-of-factly as he peeled off his hockey armor after practice recently. He wasn’t worried about how he looked in that Western Conference finals game.

“Let’s face it, it’s missing teeth. It’s not like a broken bone or anything like that you have to play through. You could still breathe. There’s nothing that hurts when you skate, so it’s just some missing teeth.”

Chicago Blackhawks Are Focused

Duncan Keith and the Chicago Blackhawks are refocused this season. A year removed from the organization’s first championship in 49 years, the Hawks hope to shake off the Stanley Cup hangover, and get back to their winning ways, which have brought them out of obscurity in Chicago and made their games one of the hottest tickets in the sports-saturated Windy City.

General manager Stan Bowman has added an element of toughness to this year’s team, grabbing Sean O’Donnell and Danny Carcillo from the Flyers and Steve Montador from Buffalo. These guys should give skill players like Duncan, Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews the room to do what they do best; produce offense.

The Hawks’ line-up is stacked with talent and stars like Duncan and Marion Hossa will look to bounce back from down seasons and help the Hawks contend in the competitive Western Conference. Forward Patrick Sharp will aim to continue on from his incredible season last year, having tallied 34 goals and 71 points in 74 games during the 2010-2011 regular season.

Duncan has been working hard all summer in anticipation of another grueling NHL season. It’s time to get back to Blackhawks hockey, and Duncan and the rest of the team couldn’t be more excited.
