For Division One College Hockey teams, they are looking to add more players like 2001 born Generals’ forward Brent Keefer to their group.


Keefer not only competes hard but also is consistently one of the fastest skaters on the ice and also has an eye for the net. On a few plays this season he has already sped ahead of the opponent and made his own breakaways. So far he has visited at least one Division One school, and has more than a few that are interested in him. His development from the end of last season to where he is now generated interest at the NAHL Showcase, and he is drawing looks from many schools so far. If Keefer contributes to show the speed and eye for the net he has in the first nine games, combined with his hard working personality then he could get even more Division One interest. Like his favorite player, Keefer does not cheat the game, and more schools are realizing that each time they see him play.
