Keith (concussion) will miss the last two games of Chicago's season, Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
Keith posted 15 points over 54 appearances in his 16th season with the Blackhawks, dressing for every game except these last two. He turns 38 in July but has two years left on his contract and has previously expressed his intention to continue playing at least through the end of his current deal.
Keith suffered a concussion in Thursday's game versus the Hurricanes, Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Keith took a knee to the head from a linesman on a fluky collision in the first period of the contest. With the Blackhawks having just two games left on the schedule, this will likely end Keith's season early. Ian Mitchell could enter the lineup in Keith's stead.
Keith (face) will not return to Thursday's game versus the Hurricanes.
Keith had an unfortunate run-in with a linesman on the Hurricanes' goal in the first period. On the play, Keith got kneed in the face, and it's apparently enough to keep him out of the rest of the contest. He should be considered day-to-day for now.
Keith scored a goal on three shots in Tuesday's 7-4 loss to the Lightning.
Keith attempted to spark a comeback late in the second period with his fourth goal of the season. The 37-year-old defenseman has 15 points, 104 shots on net, a minus-7 rating, 84 blocked shots and 26 PIM through 49 contests. With Adam Boqvist (wrist) done for the year after leaving Tuesday's game, Keith could see an increased role on the power play to close out the campaign.
Keith scored a goal on two shots in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Red Wings.
Keith has scored in back-to-back games after he snapped an 11-game point drought. Offense has been hard to find for the 37-year-old blueliner this year. He has 14 points, 91 shots on net, 78 blocked shots and a minus-4 rating through 44 contests.
Keith scored a goal on two shots in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Stars.
Keith finally deposited a goal of his own, and his second-period marker stood as the game-winner. The 37-year-old blueliner has struggled to nine points through 28 games -- that's the worst scoring pace he's produced since he had 21 points in 81 games a rookie in 2005-06. Keith has added 60 shots on net, 47 blocked shots and 18 PIM this year.
Keith notched a power-play assist and two shots on goal in Wednesday's 2-0 win over the Red Wings.
Keith received a pass from goalie Kevin Lankinen and relayed to Philipp Kurashev. After that, it was all Kurashev, as he cut through the Red Wings' defense for the first goal of the contest. Keith snapped an 11-game point drought with the helper, his sixth of the year in 18 appearances. The 37-year-old has taken on a more defensive role with 32 blocked shots, 37 shots on goal and a minus-3 rating so far in 2020-21.
Keith picked up two power-play assists in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Panthers.
The veteran blueliner was in on both of Dominik Kubalik's tallies, and after going scoreless in Chicago's first two games, Keith now has four points (all helpers) in the last two. After seeing his scoring numbers fade last season, the 37-year-old is an unlikely candidate for a rebound to the kind of production he was delivering five years ago, but he can still be a fantasy asset.
Keith recorded two assists in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Panthers.
Keith had the primary helper on goals by Alex DeBrincat (on the power play) and Connor Murphy. Those were Keith's first points of the year -- he's added seven blocked shots and six PIM, but also carries a minus-4 rating through three contests. At 37 years old, Keith is still seeing top-pairing minutes, but that may be due to a lack of better options along the Blackhawks' blue line.
Keith managed an assist in Friday's 3-2 win over the Oilers in Game 4.
Keith set up Matthew Highmore's go-ahead goal in the first period. Outside of a game 2 where he had a minus-3 rating and four PIM, Keith was a productive player in the series with four helpers, eight blocked shots and five shots on net. Expect the 37-year-old blueliner to continue in a top-pairing role.
Keith recorded an assist in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Oilers in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Qualifiers.
Keith had the secondary helper on Jonathan Toews' game-winning goal with 1:16 remaining in the third period. Keith's racked up three helpers, six blocked shots and four PIM in the series so far.

Keith scored a power-play goal, assisted on another, and registered three shots with three blocks in a 6-2 win over San Jose on Wednesday.
The 36-year-old has rediscovered his offensive game since the back half of January, amassing 12 points (two goals, 10 assists) over his last 11 games. That production has also come with a cool plus-8 rating and 28 shots on goal. Keith really struggled offensively through the season's first three months but now sits at 27 points in 61 games.
Keith had a power-play goal and an assist with four shots and two blocks Tuesday in a 6-5 loss to St. Louis.
Keith got Chicago on the board midway through the first period, the 100th tally of his distinguished career. He later set up Patrick Kane's power-play goal and has now collected two points in three of his last four games. Keith is also riding a four-game point streak, with a goal and five assists in that time. Keith's days of being an elite point-producer are in the rear view mirror, although he may be worth adding and riding while he's enjoying his current hot stretch.
Keith notched an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Wild.
Keith has an assist in three of his last five games. The 36-year-old is at just 15 points to go with 72 shots on goal and 91 blocked shots in 44 contests this season.

Keith has five helpers in his last five games. The 36-year-old blueliner is up to 11 points, 55 shots and 67 blocks in 34 contests this season. He's well below last year's 40-point pace -- currently, Keith is tracking to land between 20 and 25 points in 2019-20. He'll continue to see a lot of ice time, but his current offensive surge will likely soon fizzle out.
Keith managed an assist in Thursday's 7-5 loss to the Canucks.
Keith had a helper on Patrick Kane's second tally of the game, but that would be the last goal the Blackhawks scored.

The 36-year-old blueliner now has eight points, 51 shots on goal, 61 blocks and a minus-1 rating through 30 appearances. He'll be expected to handle more responsibility with Calvin de Haan and Brent Seabrook both out for the year after shoulder surgeries.

Keith (groin) will return to the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Avalanche, Chris Kuc of The Athletic reports.
Keith has been sidelined since Nov. 30 with a groin injury, but he was a full participant at Monday's practice, which was the first sign he was likely closing in on a return. The veteran rearguard will skate on the Blackhawks' first pairing and second power-play unit against Colorado.
