There are rumblings Chicago is working on a potential Duncan Keith trade to either the Pacific Northwest or Western Canada. Word is Keith and team are working together to get him to a place he wants to go. We will see where this goes.

The 37 year old defenseman is in the final two years of his deal that carries a $5,538,462 cap hit.
Keith has played all 1192 of his NHL games with the Chicago Blackhawks putting together 625 points. He has won three stanley cups with the blackhawks and is a two time Norris winner.
Nearing the end of his career it’s clear he wants another chance at the cup and the Blackhawks want to make use of the $5,000,000 in cap space they would clear up by moving him.
No bad blood here.
