"It's tough starting without one of the top goalies in the world, but we have faith in our backup (Tyler Carlson)," Keenan said. "We have so much depth in our team, I believe we can get through these suspensions."
Keenan also gets to watch his son Ryan, who was the Rush's first overall pick in the NLL draft, touch the court for his first regular-season game.
"It's exciting," he said. "He's worked hard his whole life for this opportunity, so it will be nice to see him out there."
Saturday's game is a 6:05 p.m. start.
The Swarm and Rush only met one last season with the Rush winning 14-8.
The home opener for the Rush is Jan. 21 against Rochester.
