Morning Bag Skate: The day after Duncan Keith injury news

New, comments

Our daily look at Blackhawks news and the happenings around the hockey world.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Chicago Blackhawks defensemen Duncan Keith is out four to six weeks following surgery to repair a meniscus tear in his right knee, the team announced Tuesday. The six-week timetable means the Hawks will be without the two-time Norris Trophy winner for 18 games until Dec. 1. His absence presents a big void on the blue line for Chicago.

The Hawks host a trio of former players in Brian Campbell, Dave Bolland and Brandon Pirri when the Panthers visit Thursday at the United Center.
