Keith (knee) will be ready for the Blackhawks’ season opener.

Keith made his preseason debut on Tuesday and considers himself “ready to roll” for the regular season. Keith has been careful with his surgically repaired knee, sticking to just one practice when the Blackhawks’ are having two per day. The two-time Norris Trophy winner is coming off of 43 points (9G / 34A) in 67 games a season ago.

Keith will miss 4-6 weeks after having surgery to repair a right meniscal tear.

Keith only missed two games last season and has missed a total of only 19 games over the last nine seasons. This is a tough blow for a thin Blackhawks blueline, who already said they were in the market for another veteran defenseman. Keith was averaging 24:21 TOI so there is a lot of ice time to be had now. Veterans Brent Seabrook, Niklas Hjalmarsson and Trevor Daley will be leaned on heavily with Keith out. Keith is expected to be sidelined until mid-to-late November and could even be out until early December.
