Scouting report

Roland McKeown - the 2nd overall pick in the 2012 OHL Priority Selection - headlines a tantalizing group of draft eligible prospects in Kingston. The 6-foot-1, 185-pound defenseman is a highly gifted offensive talent with exceptional skating ability. After encountering an adjustment period with a youthful Frontenacs squad last year, McKeown quickly became one of the team's most trusted defensemen, logging heavy minutes as an OHL rookie. Finishing the year with 7 goals and 29 points, it would be unwise to expect nothing short of a significant bump in both departments this year. McKeown is coming off a solid showing with the Canadian U18 team as an underager and will have a great opportunity to start 2013-14 off with a bang as he should play an important role with the Canadian U18's at the Ivan Hlinka Tournament.
