Keith cleared for contact, could play for ‘Hawks this weekend


Duncan Keith has been cleared for contact and could make his return to the Blackhawks lineup this weekend.

Keith has not played since Oct. 17, soon after which he had knee surgery and was expected to miss 4-6 weeks.

The 32-year-old defenseman will take some contact tomorrow at practice, according to CSN Chicago’s Tracey Myers.

The ‘Hawks are in St. Louis Saturday and host Calgary Sunday.
