Condors Goalie Matt Keetley Heading Up to Syracuse

CONDORSTOWN, Calif. – The Bakersfield Condors announced today that G Matt Keetley has been loaned to the Syracuse Crunch of the American Hockey League (AHL).

“Keets has been a warrior for us,” said Head Coach Matt O’Dette. “He’s done everything we’ve asked of him and we’re happy he’s getting the opportunity. We want to be a place that players know they can be called up from and we hope he inspires the rest of the team to work hard and get their chance.”

The Medicine Hat, AB native has appeared in 22 games this season for the Condors with a 6-13-1-1 record which included a 42-save shutout performance on Nov. 2nd in Alaska. His 2.76 goals-against average is 12th in the ECHL and his .916 save percentage is tied for sixth around the league.

A 5th round draft pick (#158) of the Calgary Flames in 2005, Keetley is no stranger to the AHL, having spent the better part of the last four seasons in the league split between the top Flames affiliates in Quad City and Abbotsford. In 91 games played in the AHL, Keetley is 28-40-9 with a 2.70 GAA and a .900 save percentage. He was also named AHL Player of the Week in October of 2008.


The 25-year old had a stellar junior career with the Medicine Hat Tigers (WHL). He appeared in 152 games, compiling a 105-30-10 record with a 2.05 GAA and a .918 save percentage. He led the Tigers to a WHL championship in 2007 and an appearance in the Memorial Cup Final.
