Michael Keating is a 1999 born, right shot rookie defenceman for the Rockland Nationals of the CCHL. Born in Taipei, Taiwan Michael's early years weren't typical for an ice hockey player. His father, a Canadian businessman, returned to Canada with his young family in 2001, settling in Oakville, Ontario and with his introduction to the sow and ice Michael and his brother Sean found a new passion ... hockey.  


Keating's commitment to excellence on the ice started at an early age, working in small group and one-on-one sessions with well-known skills instructors Wes Clark, Kevin Gomes Alexander Ivanov, Peggy Ward and Ian Taylor. 

A product of the Oakville Rangers Hockey Club, Michael made the jump to the Mississauga Senators of the Greater Toronto Hockey League in his minor bantam season playing for well-known coach Gary Camellari. Over the next 5 seasons Keating honed his game playing for the GTHL's Senators, Kings and Titans, serving as the captain of the Toronto Titans' Midgets in his final season. With the Titans Keating was coached by Jason Nobili, OJHL and OHL coach and winner of an RBC Cup.


A strong student, Michael has always shown the same dedication to his academic success as he has to his athletic. An honour roll student throughout high school, Keating is currently enrolled as a part-time student at Carleton University while playing for Rockland. Naturally drawn to sciences and with a passion for biology, Keating anticipates studying kinesiology when he begins his post-secondary studies in full.
