NHLTR: Chicago looking to trade Duncan Keith; 3 potential destinations

An era could be coming to an end in Chi-Town, as the Chicago Blackhawks will ask Duncan Keith if he is open to a trade before the deadline.

According to NHL Insider Pierre LeBrun, the Blackhawks will be approaching the veteran defenceman before the February 25th deadline to see if will is open to a change of scenery.

Keith is now 35, and has one goal and 20 assists on the season in 31 games. Keith's a three-time Stanley Cup winner, two-time Norris Trophy winner, and has 4 years remaining on his 13-year contract that carries a $5.53 million dollar cap hit.

The Florida Panthers who employ ex-Hawks coach and GM, Joel Quenneville and Dale Tallon, would love to get their hands on Keith, and a deal could be in the works for defenceman, Anton Stralman going the other way.

Two teams who will also have interest if Keith decides he is ok with a trade, would include the Vancouver Canucks and Edmonton Oilers. With Keith having all the power it makes sense for him to want to play closer to home.

For now, Duncan Keith continues to call Chicago home. Come January 2020, Keith could be the first of the Blackhawks big four to get moved, as the team looks to rebuild something special.
