If he turns into that, with more physicality and less publicity, I would be ecstatic.
I'd say he's on the upper side of skill for the Leafs.

It isn't like he's been playing with the best players on the team.

Maybe he'll get his audition with Kessel and Bozak now, since that line needs someone willing to go into the dirty areas.


He was the Leafs' leading scorer in the 196364, 196667 and 196970 seasons, and the team's top goal scorer in 197071 and 197273. Keon was considered one of the fastest skaters in the NHL, and one of the best defensive forwards of his era.[3] He would usually play against the opposing team's top centre, and developed a reputation for neutralizing some of the league's top scorers. In 197071, he scored eight shorthanded goals, setting an NHL record.
