ECHL: Toledo Walleye Forward Keenan Returning for Fourth Season

Drake Harlett/InsideTheRink

Toledo Walleye forward Conlan Keenan is returning for his fourth season with the Walleye, joining Sam Craggs and Brandon Hawkins in returning for consecutive seasons.

Keenan had previously spent four years, including the last two as captain, at SUNY-Genesso of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). During his time there, he posted 86 goals and 86 assists for 172 points in 110 games. He then turned pro in the 2018-19 season with the Tulsa Oilers of the ECHL. He would then join the Walleye the next season, contributing 13 goals and 20 assists for 33 points in 72 games.

Over his Walleye career, he has been a solid middle-six player, contributing at both ends of the ice and on special teams. Keenan’s persistence on the ice has led to many goals by Toledo, as he is never far away from the puck. He is not an elite scorer but is consistent in all three zones. His dedication to making plays and creating offense is one thing to watch, as his eyes are always on the puck.

His offensive totals with the Walleye are 56 goals and 47 assists for 103 points in 199 career games. He has given offensive support to the teammates around him and plays a simple game.

Keenan scored a hat-trick as part of a career-high three points in a 9-1 thrashing of the Cincinnati Cyclones on January 28, 2024. He is a good goal-scorer who can fill the net yet set up a teammate for a goal. Keenan is part of the core Toledo wants to bring back due to their past success in the regular season. He will provide secondary scoring as the Walleye take another shot at winning the Kelly Cup in the 2024-25 season.
