Keith dished out two helpers -- one on the power play -- in Tuesday's 8-2 win over the Senators.
Keith still hasn't scored a goal this season, but he does have 22 assists in 42 games. That production puts the veteran defenseman on pace to hit 40 points for the ninth time in the past 10 campaigns, with the only exception coming during the lockout-shortened 2012-13 season.
Keith garnered an assist in Chicago's 5-1 victory over Winnipeg on Thursday.
Keith rifled a puck from the blue line that was deflected into the back of the net by Nick Schmaltz. The helper -- his 15th of the year -- ended a five-game pointless streak for the defenseman. While the veteran may not be a prolific goal scorer, fantasy owners were likely hoping he would have notched his first of the year by now.
Keith (illness) will be in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Penguins.
Keith didn't practice Thursday or Friday due to a "minor" illness, but he was never in serious danger of missing Saturday's contest. The veteran blueliner will skate in his usual spot on the Blackhawks' top pairing and first power-play unit against the Penguins.
It doesn't sound like Keith will miss Saturday's road game against the Penguins, but it will be worth checking back to make sure he'll be good to go in this next one. Keith dropped two assists on the Rangers en route to a home win Wednesday, so hopefully the illness doesn't disrupt his momentum whenever he is ready.
Keith had two assists in a 6-3 win over the Rangers on Wednesday.
Keith has 10 points now, but they are all assists. Additionally, he only has three of those helpers over his last 10 games. Keith hasn't put a shot on goal in his last two contests, and that won't help him light the lamp.
