Quinnipiac Bobcats rising sophomore goaltender Keith Petruzzelli has been selected to attend the USA Hockey World Junior Summer Showcase that will be held from July 28th to Aug. 4th in Kamloops, British Columbia. The camp will give the players the chance to audition for a spot on the U.S. National Junior Team that will take part in the 2019 International Ice Hockey Federation World Junior Championships, Dec. 26, 2018, through Jan. 5, 2019, in Vancouver and Victoria, British Columbia.

Petruzzelli will compete against Northeastern goaltender Cayden Primeau, Kyle Kesler of the Oshawa Generals (OHL) and 2001 born goaltender Spencer Knight of the United States National Developmental program. Petruzzelli is no stranger to international competition having represented the United States at the 2016 Hlinka Memorial tournament where the team took home the silver medal. 

The Wilbraham, Massachusetts native just completed his first season at Quinnipiac going 5-6-2 with a 2.88 goals against average and an .892 save percentage in 17 games played. The 2017, 3rd round pick by the Detroit Red Wings is expected to battle junior Andrew Shortridge once again for the starting goal-tending job this fall.
