The NHL reviewed the case Wednesday and decided to hand down a one-game suspension as punishment for Duncan Keith's actions Tuesday night. Chicago will now be without Keith, who leads the team with nine assists this postseason, for Thursday's Game 4 in Los Angeles, so Johnny Oduya is likely to pair up with Brent Seabrook.

Duncan Keith is a sublime skater and one of the league's top offensive defenders. Will he ever hit 69 points again? Probably not. But he'll certainly deliver more than last season's 40 points. Focus on 50 points and 140 blocked shots. But keeper leaguers should watch his totals closely. If he looks like he's about to finish in the 40-45 point range, he should be put on the fantasy trade block. That could be who he is. And that 2009-10 was just a nice blip on his resume.
