Duncan Keith, my Olympic MVP, notches the first goal in the Hawks victory last night over Smashville WOOHOO!
28 minutes of ice time last night, one goal and one assist.

Now a Norris Trophy candidate for leagues best defender.

He led all NHL defensemen in goals (10), assists (38) and points (48) at even-strength. Keith also was proficient on the penalty kill, leading all defensemen with 5 shorthanded points (1 goal, 4 assists).

Keith, 26, was second among all defensemen with 15 multi-point contests, and also excelled defensively with 143 blocked shots and a plus-21 rating. He was second in the NHL with an average of 26:35 of ice time per game. Keith played more than 30 minutes in a game eight times, including a team season-high of 32:40 March 14 against Washington. He averaged 2:58 on the penalty kill and 2:48 on the power play per game.

Fuk YEAH! Doughty and Green are both badassed, but Duncs is the man! He has carried the Hawks D for weeks (due to injuries to Campbell and Johnsson) and he doesn’t take any shit!

Next! Canuuks FAIL!
