    Not drafted his first year that he was draft eligible, but he was good last season in the OHL, and has started with 6 points in 5 games. He's an all-around defenseman. Looked good at the WJSS for the USA. Keane a good chance to make that team.

    Beautiful skater and looked good in preseason, I’m excited for him. I had him in the 60s and was pretty happy with the pick

    So I was going in wanting to watch Ryan Suzuki on the Colts, but holy smokes this guy impressed me more than anybody on the pitch. He's so freakin' smooth with the puck, carries a decent amount of IQ, and can rough it up as well. Reminds me a ton of a John-Michael Liles with a mean streak. Really nice find by the Rangers here, I see all the tools you want that will make the NHL someday IMHO.

    E: Also I love this shot for his size - complete bullet -, but needs to work on the accuracy a bit more.

    I wanted him so badly. I would have been happy had the Sens selected him at #48. Liked him more than Durzi (no slight against him, just love Keane's style and toolkit).

    @Mike Farkas has some good videos of Keane on his channel - the top three search results are all worth watching imo.

    Thanks for the scouting report. He showed a lot of talent in his time in preseason and had a hot start in the OHL, but i havent heard anything since. Glad to hear he's kept it up

    Gerard has been very impressive as a rookie. Similar kind of player. Has been one of the best 16 year old defenders that I've seen this year.

    Stuck behind London’s HOF defense that will soon find a way to bring back prime Bobby Orr and acquire his OHL rights. :help:

    Should be a lock for Team USA at the WJC. Excited to see how he does there. Limited viewings, but I got a Brian Rafalski vibe watching him.

    Joey Keane was traded to London today, so the Keane brothers are now teammates. They played in the same lineup today. He had an assist in his first game for London.

    Damn, how many high-end RHD's do they need in London? Crazy deep roster.

    He should’ve made the WJC and I’m still annoyed by that

    Hmph, I really went to bat for this guy over the summer...effusive praise (best OHL eligible d-man, 1st round pick), even made a video for him...where the hell did I do all that if not his thread? Haha

    Oh well, nice to see him doing well. Would have liked to see him at the WJCs as well...

    Will Keane be able to make the jump up to the AHL next year or will he return to London for his final season of junior?

    He'll probably play in the AHL next season.
