Fantasy Summary

Keyser has great lateral movement and sees the puck very well through traffic. He performs well when given a larger workload, but after a slow development through the OHL it remains to be seen if he can handle a role as a professional goaltender.

April 2021 – Keyser has performed well in his second professional season, posting solid numbers in split action between the AHL and ECHL. The bulk of his playing time has come with the Jacksonville Icemen, but Jeremy Swayman’s recent success in the NHL has allowed Keyser to see some time with Providence. In four AHL games, he has managed three wins and a 0.916 save percentage. The Bruins have several promising young goalies in their development system, and at this time it appears as though Keyser sits third on the prospect depth chart. Chris Mazza

August 2020 – Keyser bounced around between the AHL and ECHL in 2019-2020, seeing limited action for both Providence and the Atlanta Gladiators. For a player who has historically posted better numbers with heavier workloads, his sub-.900 save percentage in both leagues is understandable. Knowing that goalies typically take longer to develop, the most important aspect of his year was getting nearly a full season’s worth of pro hockey experience. Both the Boston and Providence Bruins have solidified their starting and backup goalies for the 2020-2021 campaign, which means that Keyser will likely spend most of the year in the ECHL, where he will work to see increased playing time. Chris Mazza

September 2019 – Keyser had a strong preseason for Boston this year but was ultimately sent to Providence near the end of September. After steadily improving in each of his OHL seasons, Keyser will look to continue his positive development curve against pros in 2019-2020. Dan Vladar will likely see the majority of starts for Providence, which leaves the Bruins with a multiple options for Keyser’s role this year. He could see backup duty in the AHL, or be sent to the Bruins’ ECHL affiliate in Atlanta for an increased workload. Either way, this season should allow him to establish his position as a true contender for Tuukka Rask’s throne. Chris Mazza

January 2019 – Keyser played for Team USA at this year’s WJC, recording a .872 save percentage through two games while taking home a silver medal. Keyser lost his starting job to Cayden Primeau during the tournament, however it was noted that the Bruins prospect was dealing with an illness, which may have contributed to his demotion. While his overall numbers may not suggest it, Keyser looked good in goal for the Americans and made several big saves at crucial moments in the game. He will return to the OHL where he should continue his impressive season for the Oshawa Generals. Chris Mazza

December 2018 – Keyser is having an excellent first half with the Oshawa Generals of the OHL. He’s first in the OHL in save percentage (minimum 10 games) and his 2.34 GAA puts him third in the league. The six-foot-two goalie excels in all aspects of the game, but his calling card is his ability to stop high danger scoring chances from the slot. This season he’s put up a phenomenal 0.859 save percentage on those high danger shots, good for second in the OHL to this point. Keyser has been invited to the USA World Junior Championship camp where despite his excellent season he’ll face stiff competition to make the team let alone be the starter. Regardless of his making the roster, he’s having a stellar season that should excite Bruins fans for his potential going forward. Stuart Hall

November 2018 – Eligible for the 2017 Draft, Keyser was not selected by an NHL team but remained persistent in his pursuit of a professional contract. He attended development camps with both Chicago and Buffalo during the summer of 2017, later signing his entry level contract with the Bruins that October. He has been the starting goalie for the Oshawa Generals over the last two seasons, posting a save percentage above .900 in both years, including an impressive .935 thus far in 2018-2019. He has impressive quickness and lateral movement, and is very effective in tracking and attacking the puck through traffic. It will be a few years before we know whether Keyser’s ceiling is truly that of an NHL starting goaltender, but as he has consistently improved as a prospect he will be one to monitor moving forward. Chris Mazza
