Keon, now 66, addressed a small gathering of students, teachers and researchers at a hockey history lecture on Monday evening as part of the schools centennial celebrations, which will continue throughout the fall and winter.
Keon would end up with the WHAs New England Whalers, staying with the team throughout its merge into the NHL and finally retiring at the end of the 1981-82 season, the year which saw the emergence of a young rookie named Ron Francis.
Keon left the Leafs to go to the WHA in 1975, came back to the NHL with Hartford in 1979, and was bestowed upon him a great honour on his first trip back to the Gardens with another team.
Keon had many memorable games against the Montreal Canadiens' Jean Beliveau during the 1960s, shutting down the Habs' centerman during the 1967 Stanley Cup finals to lead the Leafs to their last Stanley Cup.
DaveKeon switched to the WHA in the summer of 1975 because the Toronto Maple Leafs (and owner Harold Ballard) owned his rights and blocked him from joining or being traded to another NHL team.
DaveKeon was a member of the New England Whalers at the time during the absorption and his team changed its name to the "Hartford Whalers".
