BIOGRAPHY
After coming to the Rangers in a blockbuster deal that sent goaltender Lorne Chabot to Toronto, Keeling quickly won a following in New York and lasted 11 seasons with the Blueshirts. A steady winger, he was part of the 1933 championship team and led the Rangers in goals four years later at the age of 30.

In addition to his Stanley Cup, Keeling won the Canadian junior championship with the Owen Sound Grays in 1924.
