The Chicago Blackhawks are celebrating Duncan Keith on his birthday today.
Today is Duncan Keith‘s birthday! It is surprising that he is already 37 years old. The Chicago Blackhawks drafted him in the second round (54th overall) in the 2002 NHL Draft. It has been a great ride for Keith up to this point as there were many years where he was the best defenseman in the NHL. He is going to walk into the Hall of Fame on the first ballot because of all of his accomplishments.
He started his career off with the Hawks when they weren’t very good. He was one of the key pieces that they built around to become a team that would win the Stanley Cup three times in a span of six seasons. He was a key piece to all three teams as the clear cut number one defenseman.
