PORTLAND, ME – December 29, 2022 – Goaltender Kyle Keyser was reassigned to Maine by the Boston Bruins from the American Hockey League’s Providence Bruins on Thursday. It will be Keyser’s second career stint with the Mariners, after he started one game last season.
Keyser, 23, is a native of Coral Springs, FL. Coming out of the Ontario Hockey League, he signed an entry-level deal with Boston in the spring of 2019, and re-signed this past summer.

He played 33 games for P-Bruins last season, posting a record of 11-14-7, a 2.75 goals against average, and a .908 save percentage. He has played previously in the ECHL with the Atlanta Gladiators and Jacksonville Icemen, in addition to his one appearance with the Mariners on January 21st, 2022 against the Orlando Solar Bears.
This season, Keyser got off to a strong start for Providence before suffering an injury in early November. He posted a 4-0-1 record through his first five starts, with a 1.87 GAA and a .931 SV%.
The Mariners host their final game of 2022 on Friday against the Trois-Rivieres Lions at 7:15 PM with a Concourse Carnival and a winter beanie giveaway to the first 1,000 fans presented by Martin’s Point Health Care.
