Duncan Keith: Retiring from hockey
Keith is going to retire from hockey, reports Pierre LeBrun of TSN.
The 38-year-old Keith has had a likely Hall of Fame career, putting up 106 goals and 646 points in 1,256 games with the Blackhawks and just a single season with the Oilers. He earned the Norris trophy twice and the Conn Smythe once, and Keith hoisted the Stanley Cup three times in Chicago. There's term left on his deal, and due to the cap recapture mechanism, the Blackhawks will be on the hook for a $5.5 million penalty this season and $1.9 million next season.... See More ... See Less

Keith sparked the Oilers' comeback push with a first-period tally. He also set up Connor McDavid and Evan Bouchard (on the power play) in the second period as the visitors pulled even at 3-3. Prior to Friday, Keith had one point in eight playoff games, so this level of production shouldn't be expected regularly. The 38-year-old has added 13 shots on net, 15 blocked shots and a minus-2 rating in a top-four role.... See More ... See Less

For the season, he's at 17 points, 75 blocked shots, 62 shots on net and a plus-8 rating in 47 appearances. He's played primarily on the second pairing in a defensive role.... See More ... See Less

Keith served two assists in a 7-5 win over the Red Wings on Tuesday.

Oilers' Duncan Keith: Might play Tuesday
Keith (upper body) could be an option against the Flyers on Tuesday, Jason Gregor of OilersNation.com reports.
Keith last was in action Feb. 9 versus the Blackhawks due to his upper-body injury that cost him the last nine contests. While the veteran defenseman has managed just one goal in 35 games this year, he has chipped in 13 helpers and could offer decent mid-range fantasy value once given the all-clear.... See More ...

Oilers' Duncan Keith: Placed on injured reserve
Keith (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Thursday.
Keith is in the concussion protocol and dealing with additional upper-body soreness after a hard impact with the boards Wednesday.

Oilers' Duncan Keith: Injured Wednesday
Keith (upper body) was injured in the first period of Wednesday's game versus the Blackhawks, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports.
Keith crashed hard into the boards in the first period, and he needed help getting off the ice. The defenseman appeared to hit his head or shoulder during the incident. That likely leaves the 38-year-old as questionable at best for Friday's game versus the Islanders. The Oilers should update his status prior to that contest.... See More ... See Less
