  • The Duncan Keith Committee presented Duncan with this sweater. The sweater now can be seen displayed in the lobby Fort Frances Memorial Sports Centre. Duncan was a fantastic ambassador for the NHL and the Chicago Blackhawks. He spent much of his day giving back to the community by spending time in our hospital and Rainy Crest talking to the patients and residents or anyone wishing to just chat. The committee was headed by Dave Egan assisted by Larry Patrick, Keith and Penny Knapp, Kelly and Pauline Jolicoeur, Jim Fowler, Lynn Kellar, Yvonne Noonan, Bob Miller, Rocky Brown, Vince Gouin and Wayne Strachan. A big thank you to Duncan's family and friends, Fort Frances Mayor Roy Avis, Past Mayor Glen Witherspoon, Jon Paul Patrick, B93 FM Radio, Fort Frances Times, and the many businesses throughout town that welcomed Duncan to Fort Frances on all of the store front signs. And all of the other volunteers for all of the wonderful stories, photographs, letters and all the help during the BBQ. It was a great tribute and a fun day. Good luck Duncan and bring home the Stanley Cup. "The Committee" and the whole Town of Fort Frances".
