Three Stanley Cups, two Olympic gold medals, two Norris trophies, and finally: the Conn Smythe trophy.

Duncan Keith was born in Winnipeg, but grew up in Penticton B.C. 

Keith, 31, capped off his best postseason yet scoring the Stanley Cup winning goal beating Ben Bishop late in the second period of Game 6, and became the first blueliner to win the Conn Smythe Trophy since Scott Niedermayer earned the honour in 2007. Keith was tied for third in playoff scoring with 21 points and first among defenceman. 

Many believed Keith was snubbed for the award in favour of teammate Patrick Kane when the Blackhawks won the Cup in 2013, but he finally got his due in 2015.
