CHICAGO - On the blue line he's is one of the most reliable in the NHL.
Through the Blackhawks' run to a trio of Stanley Cup championships, Duncan Keith has been the ironman for the team in their rise to the top of the NHL.
But even he is susceptible to injury just like everyone else. The team found that out this week.
On Tuesday the Blackhawks announced the Blackhawks announced that Keith had successful knee surgery but will miss the next 4-to-6 weeks to recover. It's by far the longest stretch of time off for the defenseman who has rarely missed time since joining the team ten years ago.
Chris Hine of the Chicago Tribune has been covering this story this week and he came on Sports Feed to talk about how this injury will affect the team moving forward.
