Petruzzelli named USA Hockey Goalie of Year

By Scott Bradford 05/23/2017, 5:15pm EDT

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO- USA Hockey announced their end-of-season awards Tuesday, and Lumberjacks netminder Keith Petruzzelli was named Dave Peterson Goalie of the Year.

Petruzzelli, a native of Wilbraham, MA, piled up 22 wins to lead all USHL rookies, earning him a spot on the USHL first-team All-Rookie squad. Petruzzelli’s 2.40 goals against average was the best single-season mark posted by any Lumberjacks goaltender in the franchise’s USHL history.

The Quinnipiac commit and #2 rated North American goaltending prospect for the 2017 NHL draft also made history by scoring a goal against the Madison Capitols on February 24th, 2017. The goal, which is the first scored by a goaltender in the USHL since 2010, is believed to be the first-ever scored by a goalie in 57 years of hockey at LC Walker Arena.

In addition to his 22-10-1 record, 2.40 GAA and .918 save percentage, Petruzzelli also finished the season with three points.

Petro’s goal was voted as the Lumberjacks’ moment of the year, topping a list of seven different events with 50% of the fan vote.

USA Hockey will honor its service award recipients and players of the year on June 7 at its annual Night of Tribute Awards Dinner, while the other top awards will be presented during The President’s Awards Dinner on June 9.

Lumberjacks acquire forward Pettersen from Omaha

By Scott Bradford 05/23/2017, 12:20pm EDT

MUSKEGON, MI- General Manager John Vanbiesbrouck has made another splash, acquiring forward Emilio Pettersen from the Omaha Lancers for three draft picks. The picks are all Phase II selections: a 1st and 7th-round pick in the 2018 draft, and a 2nd-round pick in the 2019 draft.

Pettersen was born April 3rd, 2000, and hails from Manglerud, Norway. He stands 5-foot-10 and weighs in at 170 pounds. The University of Denver commit was tendered by Omaha prior to last season and played in 57 games for the Lancers, tallying 10 goals and 17 assists.

“Emilio is a world-class player,” said Vanbiesbrouck. “He is a versatile player who can make a difference at both center and wing. We are excited to add him to our team.”

Pettersen was the 2nd-most productive 2000-born player in the USHL last season, scoring 27 points. Pettersen trailed only Rookie of the Year Andrei Svechnikov (58 points) among first-year eligible players.

“We’re excited to get a talented, hard-working player who already has a year of experience in the league,” said head coach John LaFontaine. “Pettersen’s biggest strength is his competitive nature, and he combines that with a relentless work ethic. He’ll be a great fit with our mentality here in Muskegon.”

Pettersen is expected to join the Lumberjacks ahead of training camp that takes place this weekend. Jacks fans can get their first look at the high-flying Norwegian this weekend at LC Walker Arena. It is undecided when exactly Pettersen will play, but camp runs from 8:00am until 9:45pm on Friday and Saturday, and 8:00am-1:45pm on Sunday, culminating with the All-Star game Sunday night from 6:00pm-8:00pm.

Admission is free, and concessions will be available.
