He led the Lumberjacks to the Clark Cup playoffs where he had 52 saves in two starts against Dubuque. In January, he was named the Most Valuable Player of the 2017 USHL/NHL Top Prospects Game after making 21 saves in relief in 27 minutes. In February, Petruzzelli became the only USHL goaltender to score a goal this season when he scored an empty net goal in a 4-1 win over the Madison Capitols.
Petruzzelli is expected to be a drafted within the first few rounds of the 2017 NHL Entry Draft this June. When he enrolls in Hamden this fall, he will have his brother D.J. on the team as well continuing Quinnipiac's tradition of having brothers in the program.
