Beloved Blackhawks defenseman, Duncan Keith, took Lord Stanley’s Cup home to his childhood home in Penticton, British Columbia. Pictures of Keith were posted to Twitter in what appears to be his parents' own Keith-themed Hall of Fame.

From his youth hockey leagues, to his time as a Michigan State Spartan and into the NHL, his parents have procured quite the impressive collection of Keith gear. Perhaps their favorite item is a framed drawing authored by a 9-year-old Keith that says, “Duncan Keith will make it to the NHL.”

Keith not only made it to the NHL, the Alternate Captain has led the defensive unit for the Blackhawks to win two Stanley Cups in four years. Keith led the team in ice time during the 2013 campaign, logging over twenty-four minutes per game. His twenty-four assists tied for 5th among defensemen league-wide. Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews were the only Blackhawks to record more assists than Keith last season.

Before his day with the cup ended, Keith brought the well-traveled silver goblet to accompany his speech to a group of local fans.

Keith made a similar trip to Penticton back in 2010.
