Keyser stopped 13 of 14 shots in Team USA's 2-1 win over Slovakia at the 2019 IIHF World Junior Championship on Wednesday. Keyser gave his country a chance to win a game in which it took his teammates the better part of the first two periods to find their legs. He was calm and steady throughout the contest with his biggest stop coming on a (horribly called) penalty shot late in the third period. Montreal prospect Cayden Primeau is expected to start for the United States on Friday, but it's clear that Keyser, who is having a remarkable season for OHL Oshawa (2.31 GAA, .931 save percentage in 24 games), is in the running to be the No. 1 man for the Americans.
Keyser is slated to join AHL Providence, the Boston Globe reports. Keyser, who logged a 28-13-0 record to go along with a 3.16 GAA and .904 save percentage in 47 regular-season games with OHL Oshawa this past season, joined the B's as an undrafted free agent this past fall. He'll provide the organization with added goaltending depth and could potentially rise up the ranks down the road with a strong minor-league performance.
