Petruzzelli, slotted just outside of Future Considerations’ Winter ranking for the 2017 NHL Draft, scored the first goal of his career in Muskegon’s 4-1 win against the Madison Capitols on Friday.
“When I saw the puck come in I thought I might have time to get a shot off and so I went for it,” Petruzzelli said, according to LocalSportsJournal.com. “It’s crazy. I was trying to celebrate and I didn’t even know what to do.”
