      Blackhawks' Duncan Keith: Returning Saturday

      Keith (knee) will make his return to the Blackhawks' blueline for Thursday's matchup with St. Louis, Brian Hedger of NHL.com reports. Keith has missed the Chicago's last 10 games after undergoing knee surgery on October 20, but has been a full-participant in practice since November 10. Whenever a player misses an extended period of time, a certain level of rust is to be expected. That being said, Keith is an elite defenseman who's transition back into the lineup should be fairly seamless, leaving no reason to be cautious about using him in any fantasy format.

      Blackhawks' Duncan Keith: Could play Saturday

      Keith (knee) was cleared for contact Tuesday, and could return to game action as soon as Saturday against the Blues, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports. Keith returned to the ice for Sunday's morning skate, marking the first time the star defender has skated since undergoing knee surgery on Oct. 20. He was cleared for contact Tuesday, and is expected to be a full participant in Wednesday's practice. The Hawks may opt to hold Keith out of Saturday's tilt against the Blues so that he can make his return in the second of back-to-back games Sunday against the Flames. That way, Keith wouldn't immediately be over-exerted less than four weeks after undergoing knee surgery, and would have a few days to rest before next Wednesday's matchup with the Oilers. Either way, Keith's impending return will be a tremendous boost to Chicago's depleted defensive corps.

      Blackhawks' Duncan Keith: Skates for first time since knee injury

      Keith participated in the Blackhawks' morning skate for the first time since his knee injury, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports. It's an important milestone in Keith's recovery, but he still likely has a week or two before he is able to return. A mid-to-late November comeback is the likely outcome, but further progress will be needed for that to be a guarantee.

      Blackhawks' Duncan Keith: Placed on long-term IR Wednesday

      Keith (knee) was placed on long-term injured reserve Wednesday. This isn't too much of a surprise and doesn't change his timetable. Keith is still expected to miss four-to-six weeks with this injury that hurts the Blackhawks' already thin blue line.

      Blackhawks' Duncan Keith: Will miss next 4-to-6 weeks

      Keith will miss the next four to six weeks after undergoing knee surgery to repair a right meniscus tear Tuesday, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. It's a huge blow to the Blackhawks, who are already extremely thin at defense, and will now be without their best defender for the next four to six weeks. Michael Rozsival has resumed skating with the team, but isn't eligible to return to game action until Nov. 2, which may be an overly optimistic target date for his return. Kyle Cumiskey will likely be recalled by the Hawks from AHL Chicago to occupy Keith's spot on Chicago's 23-man roster after he inevitably lands on injured reserve, but the Blackhawks may explore other options, such as adding another defender via trade or free agency. Given his current recovery timetable, at the very least, Keith will be sidelined until Nov. 21 against the Canucks.

His offensive production hasn't seemed to suffer because of it, as the assist went down as his 11th postseason point.
