Duncan Keith strolled into the Blackhawks' dressing room and sat down not far from where his son, Colton, was fielding questions from Patrick Kane and Alex DeBrincat about the 6-year-old's social life.
With a smile, Keith watched as his son bantered with dad's teammates, a scene quite the contrast from early on in the defenseman's career when life was all about hanging out and playing hockey with the guys.
Life has changed in many ways since Keith first entered a Blackhawks dressing room some 17 years ago, but his desire to continue to play at a high level and help his team win games while enjoying the ride has never wavered.
"All of a sudden the years have piled up pretty quick here in Chicago," Keith said. "It goes by fast. You have to enjoy it every time."
