McKeown, on the NHL players he compares himself to:
John Moore, New York Rangers. I think he’s a player I play like, an up and coming defenseman. Good skating, good passing ability. Little things like that that make a difference in the game is where I kind of peg myself.

Anyone care to join me for some sushi?— Jake Marchment (@JMarch11) June 27, 2014
"He’s got to work on his feet. He plays on an Olympic ice suface in Belleville, and it kind of exposes that his feet are not anywhere near an NHL level right now. But his compete level is at the highest level you can possible get. He plays hard. He’s in the right position all the time."
