The Boston Bruins scouting staff under the close vision of General Manager Don Sweeney have seemingly made out like geniuses when it comes to finding available talent when it comes to development/rookie camp invites. Last summer while looking for a place to display his talents as an undrafted goaltender, Kyle Keyser found himself at the Buffalo Sabres development camp. After the unsigned free-agent was released, the Boston Bruins came calling with an invite to rookie camp where he impressed the Bruins Brass enough for the organization to place him in the depth chart signing him to a three-year entry-level contract in early October of 2017.

Besides the game tonight where he got pulled after four goals in 14 minutes of action against the Sarnia Sting, the 18-year-old goaltender has played quite well in his return to the ice since mid-December after suffering an upper-body injury that had him miss a short stretch of games due to protocol. As mentioned below from Matt and DJ’s @IceDogsThisWeek Twitter account, he’s heavily relied on and missed when not in the lineup.

As mentioned before today’s shelling in the first period, the 6′-2″ 181-pound Coral Springs, Florida native has only one regulation loss in his previous 11 games and in that time strung together a nice six-game winning streak before the loss last week against the Owen Sound Attack. Although Keyser got the no-decision today, he remains on a three-game winning streak and has faced 401 shots in his last 12 games.

Below are video highlights to give folks who don’t watch his games on a regular basis a small sample size of his skills in a recent game this season.

Very mature in his interviews and understand the value of teamwork over individual efforts as seen in this video below after a loss in Early December of 2017.
