Of Red Wings goaltending prospect-related note this morning:
- DetroitRedWings.com’s Dana Wakiji looked back at Quinnipiac goaltender Keith Petruzzelli’s 2018-2019 season “By the Numbers,” and Red Wings goalie coach Brian Mahoney-Wilson weighs in on Petruzzelli’s development:
Quotable: “Keith in two years’ time has matured immensely, and that’s both on the ice and off the ice personality-wise, with the coaching staff, both his coaching staff at Quinnipiac and with myself and (Wings goaltending coach) Jeff Salajko, being able to interact and discuss things pertaining to goaltending and life in general. He’s come a long way in the strength department, still has a long way to go. This is a big year for Keith in the sense that it’s his net to run with at Quinnipiac as Andrew Shortridge signed with San Jose. We love his athletic ability, his ability to ad lib in plays. It’s just a matter of cleaning up his structure and skating and that has a little bit to do with strength. Once that strength kicks in and he adds muscle mass, his core strength picks up and the same thing with his leg strength, I think he’ll be a little bit more stable in the technical department and also the skating department.”
