Absolutely loaded with talent, Larry Keenan can be an effective player in a number of different roles on the ice. Keenan is a natural, gifted with incredible ability on both sides of the puck, as well as possesses superb athleticism. Keenan has tremendous skating skills, able to move at a high speed with stellar footwork and able to make smooth hard cuts when moving around the ice. Keenan is able to use his speed to put himself in position to make effective plays on both ends of the ice, able to prevent scoring chances on one end, and create them on the other. Keenan has a great sense when on the ice. With a high hockey IQ, Keenan seems ready and able to make plays at a high level, able to read plays well while running the offence, as well as forces turnovers on the defensive end by diagnosing a play before the puck can be snapped around by the opposition. Keenan never panics, able to stay composed in high pressure situations and make winning plays out of them. The quarterback of the power play unit, Keenan uses his strong mindset for the game and is able to generate dangerous scoring chances with the man-advantage. Keenan makes his team far more effective on the special units while he is on the ice. Keenan is equally effective at playmaking for his team in equal strength situations, able to make fantastic stretch passes, and keeps control of the puck well in transition with top of the line hands. Keenan is primarily a defenseman but with his strong offensive skill set, he is the perfect hybrid prospect moving onto the next level. Keenan's ability to play up, as well as on the back end creates problematic situations for opposing teams as this makes it difficult for them to game plan against key matchups due to Keenan. Keenan's versatility only bolsters his upside and draft stock as he has proven he can make an impact on every area of the game. Moving forward Keenan will be an intriguing prospect to watch. As he continues to grow physically, Keenan will become continuously more dangerous and could be a top player down the line of his career, If he can continue to stay dedicated and determined moving forward, the sky's the limit for Larry Keenan.
