Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith was suspended for five games without pay by the NHL on Friday for elbowing Vancouver star Daniel Sedin in the head.
Keith lunged at Sedin in the neutral zone in the first period of Chicago's 2-1 overtime victory Wednesday night, hitting Sedin in the head. Sedin didn't have the puck at the time.
Keith was given a minor penalty for...
It’s only a day after Duncan Keith delivered a flying elbow to the head of Daniel Sedin as retaliation for a previous hit that Sedin had laid on Keith. Keith’s hit was illegal and he will absolutely be suspended for it; however this is one of those cases where I believe that an illegal action was also a necessary action. Necessary because proper justice was not going to be served...
This is a conversation that needs to happen.That is all.(I suspect they would talk about hoses, little people and Chris Chelios)
According to TSN's Bob McKenzie the NHL has changed its mind and requested an in-person hearing with Duncan Keith which the defenceman waived, meaning the suspension is no longer limited to less than five games. More to come as news of the length of the suspension breaks this afternoon.
Last night there was a lot of outrage about Blackhawks defensemen Duncan Keith's hit on Canucks forward Daniel Sedin.
What I didn't see was a lot of outrage about Daniel Sedins hit on Duncan Keith, and both hits are bad. Being consistent, I think you can see that both players "could be" required to sit a game or two, both hits are bad and unnecessary. I also...

Shane Doan was given a 3 game suspension yesterday for elbowing Jamie Benn in the head, expect Keith to get the same.

With Shane Doan getting suspended for three games for elbowing Jamie Benn in the face, you've got to think that the Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith is going to get a game or two suspension for taking out the Canucks star forward Daniel Sedin with this high elbow to the head.
These types of dirty hits are not acceptable and the NHL needs to be more proactive in removing...

Defying the predictions of all but the most partisan observers, NHL Discipline has handed down a five-game suspension for Duncan Keith.
Head of Discipline Brendan Shanahan termed Keith's hit to Daniel Sedin's head "reckless and dangerous."
I buy levying a suspension for what was clearly a retaliatory and dangerous hit. I can even see...
Keith received two for elbowing.
After missing most of the 1st period rushing home from work, about five minutes into the 2nd period I came to the conclusion that I was ok with a loss tonight. Amid all the fracas in between whistles I was ok with all the penalties takes in the 2nd period, well except for that Henrik hooking one in the neutral zone, because sometimes during the season you just need a night like this...
The main topic of discussion was the Duncan Keith suspension.
With brother Daniel out of action for what could be up to two weeks as a result of a Duncan Keith head shot, the Vancouver Canucks brass have been scouring the classifieds, pounding the pavement and holding interviews with potential replacements for the lad from Sweden.
No longer able to lineup beside his brother, Hank may to see time on the second line, or sandwiched...

It all started with Janik Hansen using Johnny Oduya as a turnstyle and popping the first goal of the game on the...
