5. Duncan Keith

Duncan Keith is still with the Chicago Blackhawks as of this writing and what a run it has been thus far!

Keith is making a case as the best Blackhawks blueliner to date (and based on our ranking we are saying that now) as we are talking about the defensive backbone of three Stanley Cup Championship Teams and a two time Norris Trophy winner.  The last Stanley Cup that he won, Keith was as an absolute beast, leading all skaters in Assists and Plus/Minus and winning the coveted Conn Smythe Trophy. 

Keith did not just win two Norris Trophies but he also received votes for that award ten seasons in a row (2007-08 to 2016-17).  With 543 career Points and counting, Keith might just rise from his already impressive ranking on an Original Six franchise.
