"I am a year older and more experienced. My knowledge of the league is better. I find when you move the puck up quickly to the forwards, the offence will come," he said, adding that a few more points on the power play have helped pad his stats.
Knowing when to join the rush is his biggest challenge, admits McKeown. He has had conversations with Coach Gill in practice, trying to get better in that area. Coach Gill said McKeown's desire to improve in this area has paid off.
"Sometimes when you're that talented it's hard to know when to back off. Less is more," Gill said. "Roland, by doing less, is now doing more for the team."
