Blackhawks D Duncan Keith back in lineup after sitting out with illness

CHICAGO - Defenceman Duncan Keith is back in the lineup for the Blackhawks' game against the Winnipeg Jets.

Keith missed Chicago's 2-1 loss at Minnesota on Thursday night due to an illness. It was the first time he had missed a game this season.

Keith entered Sunday night's game against Winnipeg with a team-best 43 assists.

While Keith returned to the lineup, forward Bryan Bickell was scratched. He has struggled since returning from a lower-body injury.
