Many of the top young goaltenders in the United States are at the Warren Strelow National Goaltending Camp at USA Hockey Arena in Plymouth, Mich. this week.
Drew Commesso (Norwell, Mass.) and Keith Petruzzelli (Wilbraham, Mass.) are the lone New England natives at the prestigious camp that is going on from August 14-17.
The camp is named after the late Warren Strelow, a former NHL goalie coach who served in that same capacity for the 1980 U.S. Olympic Men's Ice Hockey Team, according to USA Hockey's press release on the matter. Several New England natives are serving as mentors or coaches throughout the four-day camp, including Dartmouth assistant David Lassonde (Durham, N.H.), Michigan State assistant Joe Exter (Cranston, R.I.), and Pittsburgh Penguins goaltending coach Mike Buckley (Haverhill, Mass.).
