The Chicago Blackhawks have been announced as one of the 24-playoff teams and Duncan Keith has taken full advantage of his time off, looking insanely fit in a recent Instagram post.

Duncan Keith has been the heart and soul of the Chicago Blackhawks on defense for years now. As long as he can play up to his strengths as the Blackhawks make a playoff bid, this could be an exciting couple of months coming up.

Keith has always been in good shape throughout his career, but he has taken the next step in his fitness, as he’s had time off to heal up and get in great shape.

At 36, almost 37, Keith is looking unbelievable and could be the key to Chicago’s success in the playoffs.

With the craziness going on in the sports world, the Blackhawks making a bid for the Stanley Cup wouldn’t be the craziest thing that’s happened in 2020. I’m not saying they will win even one series, I am saying that it’s very possible that they could go very far though.

For a while now, I have been promoting this team, believing in them. If Keith is just one of many players getting in great shape on the team, they could do some damage in the playoffs against some teams.

If they’re going to get past the Oilers, playing solid on defense is key. The only way to match up well and beat them is to slow down Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl. The way Duncan Keith looks makes me believe he can log some serious minutes and help the team in a big way.
