Power Rankings: Blackhawks hold top spot as Sharks, Leafs rise from deep – NHL – SI.com

When asked if it could be the mumps, head coach Joel Quenneville said, Not sure about that. I don’t know what’s wrong. He’s sick. (via Chicago Sun-Times ) Keith is well known as one of the more fit players in the league and he has often logged major minutes for the Blackhawks over the years. A lot of players play through various illnesses and ailments, so either the Blackhawks are being extremely cautious, or Keith is feeling pretty terrible. Mumps has officially hit five NHL teams so far including the Wild, Anaheim Ducks , New Jersey Devils , New York Rangers and Pittsburgh Penguins . The St. Louis Blues never had a confirmed case of the mumps, but they had players go down with illness as well earlier in the year. Sidney Crosby was recently felled by the disease while Penguins teammate Beau Bennett has a suspected, but unconfirmed case. Rangers center Derick Brassard was also sent home from his team’s recent road trip with a suspected case of the mumps as well. Paranoia reigns supreme as more and more players fall ill to the uncommon virus. source: http://www.cbssports.com/nhl/eye-on-hockey/24895258/duncan-keith-out-sick-blackhawks-coach-not-sure-if-its-mumps
