This comes at little surprise to most. Duncan Keith helped the Blackhawks capture three Stanley Cups in the decade, was an alternate captain the whole decade, won two Norris Trophies, and won a Conn Smythe Trophy along the way.
As for Patrick Kane, he also won the three Stanley Cups with the Hawks while adding a Conn Smythe, a Hart Memorial Trophy, a Ted Lindsey Award and an Art Ross Trophy. Kane also led the decade in points, just recently had his #88 retired by his junior team, the London Knights, and recorded his 1,000th career NHL point. It’s been quite the month, and decade, for #88.
Despite the awards, Kane was somehow left off the top ten players of the decade list, because that makes a lot of sense. Anyway, that’s a story for another day.
