Duncan Keith Named a Finalist For NHL Foundation Player Award

On Friday morning, the NHL announced that Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith was among the three finalists for the 2013-14 NHL Foundation Player Award. Keith is also a finalist for the Norris Trophy.


The NHL Foundation Player Award is presented to “an NHL player who applies the core values of hockey – commitment, perseverance and teamwork – to enrich the lives of people in his community.”

In 2011, Keith and his wife founded Keith Relief, a charity dedicated to helping families dealing with emotional and financial burdens caused by medical crisis.

Boston’s Patrice Bergeron and San Jose’s Brent Burns are the other two finalists. NHL clubs submitted nominations for the NHL Foundation Player Award and the finalists were selected by a judging panel. The NHL Foundation will present $25,000 to the chosen charitable organization of the recipient.

    All three men have done tremendous things to help people in need. Anyone would be a worthy winner. Thanks Duncs!

    This is the true “cost” of a money based system…if you don’t have enough, you go without, regardless of what it is…and this is the thing about ANY monetary system, none have any considerations for the human interest…and yet in the end all that matters is our humanity. Every day on planet Earth a child dies every 4 minutes due to LACK. Over 50% of the world’s population lives on less than a dollar a day. The United States now has the 2nd highest infant mortality rate of any modernized nation on Earth.

    Helping and loving one another is the only true currency!
