Evan Barratt Invited To World Junior Summer Showcase

Rising Penn State men’s hockey sophomore Evan Barratt is one of 42 players on the initial U.S. roster for the 2018 World Junior Summer Showcase.

Barratt will head to Kamloops, B.C., July 28-August 4 in hopes of earning a spot on the U.S. National Junior Team, which will compete in the 2019 International Ice Hockey Federation World Junior Championship this winter.

Barratt, who was selected in the third round of the 2017 NHL Entry Draft by the Chicago Blackhawks, finished his freshman season with 11 goals and seven assists. He scored two goals, including the game winner, in Penn State’s Big Ten quarterfinals win over Minnesota.

The Bristol, PA, native will be joined by five other conference standouts at the week-long camp — Wisconsin’s Josh Ess and Sean Dhooghe, Michigan’s Josh Norris and Quinn Hughes, and Michigan State’s Tommy Miller.

Barratt is the only player from Pennsylvania on the roster, with Minnesota, Massachusetts, and Michigan all well represented as expected.

He also participated in last year’s showcase, tallying a goal and two assists in three games. The 5-foot-11 center with a wicked left-handed shot is one of the most exciting returning players for the Nittany Lions.
