ST. CLOUD, Minn. - Quinnipiac women's ice hockey associate head coach Harry Rosenholtz has been selected to serve as a goaltending coach at the 2010 USA Hockey Girls Select 16 &17 Player Development Camp.The camp is scheduled to run from June 25 through July 1 at the National Hockey Center in St. Cloud, Minn. This is the third straight year that Rosenholtz has attended the camp.
Players attending the camp have been chosen through regional tryouts, and those selected will comprise the USA U-18 roster that will compete in Canada in August. The team will also play in the World U-18 Championships this year.
Rosenholtz just completed his second year with the Bobcats after joining head coach Rick Seeley's staff after a long career at Yale. Rosenholtz has played a pivotal role in one of the largest season-to-season turnarounds in college hockey history when Quinnipiac improved from 3-26-5 in 2008-09 to 19-10-8 last season. One of the biggest reasons for the Bobcats' success was the play of freshman goalie Victoria Vigilanti (Woodbridge, Ontario). Under Rosenholtz's guidance, Vigilanti had a success first season, leading the nation in goals-against average (1.24) while her .957 save percentage was the second highest all-time in the history of ECAC Hockey. As a result, Vigilanti was named the ECAC Hockey Rookie and Goalie of the Year, while also earning First Team honors. Vigilanti also received All-New England honors.
