The Boston Bruins Need To Make a Decision On Goalie Prospect

Ed Fonger

One of the strengths of the Boston Bruins has been their organizational depth at the goaltender position. Recently, the Bruins have been blessed with two Vezina Trophy-caliber netminders, Jeremy Swayman and Linus Ullmark, as well as a pair of American Hockey League goalies, Brandon Bussi and Michael DiPietro, who had solid seasons with the Providence Bruins. Boston also possesses two drafted goalies Philip Svedeback, who is heading into his junior season at Providence College, and sixth-round pick Reid Dyck, an athletic goalie who has progressed every season and is now a top goaltender in the Western Hockey League with the Swift Current Broncos.

But the caveat in all of this is the fact that Boston could lose Ullmark to trade this offseason, and both AHL netminders are restricted free agents looking for new deals. The depth that the Bruins hold in this valuable position could slip away quickly. Another goalie needing a contract is Dyck, who will have to sign his entry-level contract with the club before the June 1 deadline. The 6-foot-4, 200-pound goaltender was the 183rd overall pick in the 2022 NHL Draft. A raw, but athletic netminder, Dyck needed some fundamental development to be considered a real prospect. But that has been Boston’s specialty over the years as they develop goalies well.

As a result, Dyck’s progression has been encouraging as his numbers have improved each of the four seasons he has played with Swift Current. This past season, Dyck posted a 2.70 goals against average and a .911 save percentage. The 20-year-old is now a legitimate prospect and there is a likelihood that Boston will continue with the Winkler, Manitoba native, and sign him to a contract.

Bussi projects to be the backup to Swayman next season in Boston and a decision on DiPietro, who was acquired in a trade that sent Jack Studnicka to Vancouver, will have to be made. Svedeback who just turned 22 years old remains unsigned. Kyle Keyser is a 25-year-old prospect who is a restricted free agent and will probably not be re-signed by Boston. All of these factors make it a probability that the Bruins will sign Dyck before the deadline.
