Another player request, this time from the Coffee Junkee at the Cardboard Jungle blog. This time it features one of his favorite players, Dave Keon.
1979-80 OPC # 279 Dave Keon:
Scary stat: Dave personifies the word gentleman in the game of hockey. Here is his career penalty minutes totals, going season by season.
117 penalty minutes in 22 seasons. Incredible.
Dave's career was a long one, almost 1500 professional games, 498 goals, 4 Stanley Cups, a Conn Smythe, two Lady Byng awards, two Paul Deneau trophies (WHA version of Lady Byng), and a Calder.
Imagine as well, at the end of their careers, a forward line in Hartford consisting of: LW Bobby Hull, C Dave Keon, RW Gordie Howe.
Before there were lockouts and strikes, there was Dave Keon.
