Keyser Ready for Opportunity with Providence

Netminder, entering third full professional season, set for next step with P-Bruins

by Eric Russo @erusso22 / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - Kyle Keyser is just 22 years old.

But the Florida product has already been a part of the Bruins organization for nearly four years. And while Keyser has yet to make his regular-season NHL debut, he'll enter the 2021-22 campaign as the club's longest-tenured goaltender.

With Tuukka Rask recovering from offseason hip surgery and still an unrestricted free agent, as well as the departures of Jaroslav Halak and Daniel Vladar, Keyser has a leg up on newly signed netminders Linus Ullmark and Troy Grosenick, depth backstop Callum Booth, and even rookie Jeremy Swayman, who was drafted in June 2017 but didn't sign his entry-level deal until March 2020.

by Eric Russo @erusso22 / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - There's been no shortage of star power at Warrior Ice Arena this summer.

For weeks, a bevy of NHLers has been training at the Bruins' practice facility in Brighton, led by the likes of Brad Marchand, Charlie McAvoy, Chris Wagner, Matt Grzelcyk, as well as former Black & Gold mainstays Torey Krug and Noel Acciari and Buffalo Sabres star and Massachusetts native Jack Eichel.

But another face among the crowd may not be quite as familiar - at least for now.

Lohrei Has Made Important Strides in His Development

Bruins top pick in 2020 NHL Draft was named to All-USHL First Team last season

by Eric Russo @erusso22 / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - Mason Lohrei had a season to remember for the Green Bay Gamblers.

The Wisconsin native led all USHL defensemen with 19 goals, 40 assists, 59 points, and six game-winning tallies in 48 games during the 2020-21 campaign. Lohrei also set a franchise record for points in a season by a defenseman and finished his tenure with the Gamblers ranking second in club history among defensemen with 27 goals, 69 assists, and 96 points.

It was a striking offensive uptick for the blue liner, who had notched just eight goals and 37 points in the same number of games in 2019-20. But the Bruins top pick in the 2020 NHL Draft (58th overall) believes it was his work in the defensive zone that set him apart and led him to become a force at the opposite end of the rink.
