Keith reveals he had surgery last offseason

By Jesse Rogers

Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith had a broken finger and minor surgery on his elbow early last offseason, he revealed on Wednesday.

"It was minor surgery that needed to get done at the end of last year before I could start working out," Keith stated.

He said it didn't affect his play this past season, and because he's healthy he'll play in the World Championships for Team Canada this spring.

"I'm really excited to go there and play," Keith said. "I would have liked to have gone last year."
