It looked like his season had turned a corner after he missed three games with an injury just before the Hawks went on a roll. That all came to a crashing halt this weekend as Keith was on the ice for a whopping 11 of 14 goals scored against the Hawks in losses to Calgary (5-2) and Edmonton (9-2). “I felt coming in I wanted to respond,” Keith said after Saturday’s loss. “I felt energetic coming into the game and next thing you know it’s in the back of our net.
