Using addKeyListener to bind keys Javascript

I'm making a small game for a class and I am having trouble finding a way to bind keys to functions. One solution I found was using addEventListener, however I cannot find a way to take the key value and bind it to an animation.

document.addEventListener("keydown", function(event){
if(event.which === 65) {
$("#player").animate({left: '5px'});
}
});

Answer
var x = event.which || event.keyCode;  // Use either which or keyCode, depending on browser support
