Duncan Keith

Duncan Keith, currently the alternate captain and the two-way defenseman for the Chicago Blackhawks, is another Canadian NHL player who is best known for his outstanding capabilities in both offensive and shutdown situations.

After playing defense for three years with the Penticton Panthers, a local Junior A team in the British Columbia Hockey League, Keith was quickly recruited by Michigan State University as a freshman in 2001, and a year later, during the 2002 NHL Entry Draft, he was selected by the Chicago Blackhawks in the second round as a 54th overall pick.

In recognition for his significant positive impact on the team, Keith was named the alternate captain in 2008, and by 2009, he had established himself, along with teammate Brent Seabrook, as one of NHL's top shutdown defensive pairings. Furthermore, in 2010, he was awarded the James Norris Memorial Trophy as the best NHL defenseman during the offseason that year.

Keith has since gone on to help lead the Blackhawks to three Stanley Cup victories in 2010, 2013, and 2015, and has also won two Olympic gold medals as a part of the Canadian men's hockey team in 2010 and 2014.
