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 two goals and five 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.
