Oilers' Duncan Keith: Sends helper in win

Keith notched an assist and blocked four shots in Thursday's 5-4 overtime win over the Flames in Game 5. Keith helped out on Evan Bouchard's game-tying goal at 16:08 of the second period. The 38-year-old Keith has only gotten on the scoresheet in three of the Oilers' 12 playoff contests, but he's picked up five points. The experienced blueliner has played big minutes in a top-four role, and he's added 24 blocked shots, 14 shots on net and a minus-3 rating.

‘Unfazed’ Duncan Keith worth every penny for Edmonton Oilers

If you were understandably entranced by the jaw-dropping brilliance of Connor McDavid, it might have been easy to miss it in the magnitude of the moment. In between McDavid putting Jacob Markstrom on a poster and his shimmy to shake Nikita Zadorov, Duncan Keith threaded a pass – through the wickets of Selke Trophy finalist Elias Lindholm – that only a few players on the planet could sew.

Oilers' Duncan Keith: Three-point burst Friday

Keith scored a goal on two shots and added a pair of assists in Friday's 5-3 win over the Flames in Game 2. Keith sparked the Oilers' comeback push with a first-period tally. He also set up Connor McDavid and Evan Bouchard (on the power play) in the second period as the visitors pulled even at 3-3. Prior to Friday, Keith had one point in eight playoff games, so this level of production shouldn't be expected regularly. The 38-year-old has added 13 shots on net, 15 blocked shots and a minus-2 rating in a top-four role.

Duncan Keith Has Been Crucial to the Development Of Evan Bouchard

Duncan Keith should get credit for being better than most Oilers fans thought he would be when GM Ken Holland worked a widely-criticized deal with the Chicago Blackhawks and traded for Keith this past offseason. Keith should get credit for producing on the second-pair at the age of 38 years old and not letting the doubters and naysayers derail his first season with the Oilers. He should get credit for regularly playing more than 20 minutes per night and for being a steady replacement when a guy like Darnell Nurse goes down.

Oilers' Duncan Keith: Logs power-play assist

Keith posted a power-play assist, two hits and two blocked shots in Monday's 4-3 loss to the Kings in Game 1. Keith ended the regular season on a four-game point drought, but that ended when he set up Kailer Yamamoto's second-period tally. The 38-year-old Keith is expected to play a top-four role in the postseason while adding a wealth of playoff experience. Prior to this year, the defenseman has amassed 86 points in 135 playoff contests while lifting the Stanley Cup three times as a member of the Blackhawks.

Oilers' Duncan Keith: Hands out helper

Keith produced an assist, two shots on goal and two blocked shots in Friday's 6-3 win over the Avalanche. Keith has picked up assists in each of the last two games. He also had to take on 21:34 of ice time, his highest total since March 9, when Darnell Nurse (lower body) exited the game. Keith is up to 21 points, 78 shots, 100 blocked shots and a plus-12 rating through 60 contests, but he's mainly seen a second-pairing role for much of the season. With Nurse's status unclear for Sunday in Columbus, the 38-year-old Keith could be asked to play a larger role in the near term.

Keith served two assists in a 7-5 win over the Red Wings on Tuesday. Keith had not added a point since returning from the injured reserve (upper body) on March 1 against Philadelphia.
