Gordie Howe had the longest and most storied career in the NHL,then Dave
Keon must be second. In terms of longevity, Keon was amazing, as his
Hall of Fame career stretched out over 22 years, from 1960-1981, and 18 of
those years were NHL years. He was a member of the great Toronto
Maple Leafs of the early 1960s, and played his entire career there until
his shift to the WHA. After that he joined Howe and Company on the
Hartford Whalers! Keon assisted on Gordie's 1000 career goal.
Dave Keon Inducted 1986.
