 The 2014 - 2015 campaign helped solidify Keith as one of best defenseman to ever lace up the skates.  Keith led all Chicago defenseman in points this year, with his most notable point being the game winning goal in game six of the finals.  The tally helped the Blackhawks bring home their third Stanley Cup in six years.  It was the first time Chicago won the Stanley Cup on home ice since 1938.

In addition to bringing home another Stanley Cup, Duncan added a Conn Smythe Trophy to his stockpile of hardware. His collection already includes two Stanley Cups, two James Norris Memorial Trophies (as the leagues top defenseman) and two Olympic Gold Medals.

Few hockey players will ever have a season like Duncan did in 2014 - 2015.  Below are a few highlights from the season, along with training tips to help prepare for the next.
