The Boston Bruins' goaltending outlook for the upcoming 2023-24 season is solid and secure. The dynamic tandem of Jeremy Swayman and Linus Ullmark, Jennings Trophy winners from last season, stands as a robust force in the crease.

In the unlikely event of disruptions to Swayman or Ullmark, the Providence Bruins in the AHL offer potential backup solutions. However, the Bruins' goalie talent pool extends even further.

The organization has been actively nurturing goaltending prospects through various avenues, including drafts, trades, and undrafted free agency. As we wrap up our prospect rankings for forwards and defense, it's time to unveil the top five goaltending prospects shaping the team's future.

Reid Dyck:

Drafted in the sixth round (183rd overall) in the 2022 Entry Draft, Reid Dyck's selection drew attention. Associate Director of Amateur Scouting Ryan Nadeau expressed confidence in Dyck's potential, despite his 3.62 GAA and .887 SV% in the WHL with the Swift Current Broncos last season. Dyck's progression is closely monitored.

Philip Svedebäck:

Philip Svedebäck, a fourth-round pick in the 2021 Draft, showcased his commanding presence as a freshman at Providence College. His performance propelled the Friars to the Hockey East semifinals, highlighting his ability to excel in goal. Svedebäck's promising journey is a storyline to watch.

Michael DiPietro:

Acquired from the Vancouver Canucks, Michael DiPietro brings experience and promise. His time with the Maine Mariners in the ECHL showcased his abilities, laying the groundwork for potential contributions to the Bruins.

Kyle Keyser:

Having provided reliable support for Providence, Kyle Keyser exhibited resilience with a promising AHL season. His re-signing in July solidifies his role as a dependable asset within the organization.

Brandon Bussi:

Outstanding AHL performances position Brandon Bussi as a standout among goaltending prospects. His impressive stats secured a spot in the AHL All-Rookie team and the All-Star Game. Bussi's upward trajectory holds the potential for significant impact when called upon.

While the Bruins aim to avoid extensive reliance on their goaltending reserves, the presence of Bussi, Keyser, and DiPietro adds a layer of security. The developmental paths of Svedebäck and Dyck also contribute to the promising future of Bruins goaltending.
