Ice Hockey UK announced Monday that Petes forward Liam Kirk has been named to Great Britain’s Under-20 National Team.
The team will compete in the 2019 IIHF World Junior Championship Division II Group A (D2A) tournament to be held in Estonia from January 13 to 19, 2019. Other teams taking part include host team Estonia, Korea, Lithuania, Romania, and Spain.
Kirk, who has 2 goals and 5 assists in 20 games with the Petes this season, suited up for Great Britain in both the 2017 and 2018 D2A tournament. In 2018, in addition to winning a bronze medal, Kirk was named the tournament’s best forward after scoring the most goals (7), assists (7), and points (14) to go along with a tournament-best 71.43% face off percentage.
Kirk has also competed with Great Britain’s National and Under-18 squads.
