When the Moose play the San Antonio Rampage that night, Keane will be honoured with the number retirement and a special tribute. (Note: do you remember who the assistant coach is of the Rampage? Former Dir. Hockey Ops Jeff Truitt)
The team’s former captain played five seasons here in the AHL after a storied NHL career that saw him win the Stanley Cup with three different teams.
The former Montreal Canadiens captain played 1,230 regular-season NHL games and 443 more in the AHL before the Moose decided last summer not to offer him a new contract.
The last pro jersey retired in Winnipeg was Thomas Steen’s No. 25 near the end of the Jets’ tenure.
Congrats to Mike Keane!
