The summer after the Blackhawks won the 2010 Stanley Cup, Duncan Keith took some time to relax before the defenseman began training for another season of hockey.

Just not nearly enough time.

"We won the Cup and I took two weeks off," Keith said. "Looking back, it was probably the stupidest thing I could have done. But I didn't want to be behind in my training; I wanted to get stronger and get going to the gym.

"I remember doing squats and my hip would be bothering me and my shoulder felt like it was coming out. I needed to take maybe another month off and I would have been a lot better for it."
