Defenseman has been out with groin injury, forward in concussion protocol @NHLdotcom

Duncan Keith and Andrew Shaw were placed on injured reserve by the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday. Keith's placement is retroactive to Nov. 29, Shaw's to Nov. 30. 

Keith, a 36-year-old defenseman who was twice voted as winner of the Norris Trophy (2009-10 and 2013-14) and was voted winner of the Conn Smythe Trophy as Stanley Cup Playoff MVP in 2015, has six points (one goal, five assists) in 25 games this season. The three-time Stanley Cup winner with the Blackhawks has not played since leaving Chicago's game against the Colorado Avalanche on Nov. 29 with a groin injury.

Shaw, a 28-year-old forward who helped Chicago win the Cup in 2013 and 2015, has 10 points (three goals, seven assists) in 26 games this season. He last played Saturday against Colorado. He was placed in concussion protocol on Tuesday. 

A player must spend at least seven days on IR before being activated, meaning that each will be eligible to return to the lineup when Chicago plays the Arizona Coyotes at United Center on Sunday. The Blackhawks play the New Jersey Devils on at Prudential Center on Friday (7 p.m. ET; NHLN, MSG+, NBCSCH+, NHL.TV).
