Duncan Keith (born July 16, 1983) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman for the Edmonton Oilers of the National Hockey League (NHL). Keith is known as a two-way defenceman, capable in both shutdown and offensive roles. He is a three-time Stanley Cup champion with the Blackhawks in 2010, 2013 and 2015. In 2017, Keith was named one of the “100 Greatest NHL Players” in history.

Following his freshman year at Michigan State University, Keith was selected in the second round, 54th overall, by Chicago in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft. After splitting the next year between Michigan State and the Kelowna Rockets of the Western Hockey League (WHL), he spent two seasons with the Norfolk Admirals of the American Hockey League (AHL). In 2005–06, he played his NHL rookie season with the Blackhawks. Four years later, he won the James Norris Memorial Trophy as the NHL’s best defenceman and helped the Blackhawks to the Stanley Cup in 2010. Keith won a second and third Stanley Cup with the Blackhawks in 2013 and 2015, respectively. He also received the Conn Smythe Trophy in 2015 by a unanimous vote.

Keith is an international gold medallist with Team Canada at the 2010 Vancouver and 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics
