Oilers defenceman Duncan Keith leaves game after scary collision into boards

Duncan Keith had to be helped off the ice after getting tangled up with Sam Lafferty and falling heavily into the boards.

Edmonton Oilers defenceman Duncan Keith was forced to leave Wednesday's game against the Chicago Blackhawks after falling hard into the boards.

The play occurred late in the first period as Keith was defending against Blackhawks forward Sam Lafferty and appeared to get his feet tied up as he tripped and went into the boards. Keith laid on the ice before getting helped off and went straight to the dressing room.

In 34 games with the Oilers this season, the 38-year-old has a goal and 14 points.
