Isaiah Saville of Anchorage earned plenty of ice time for Team USA at the World Junior Summer Showcase in Plymouth, Michigan.

The 18-year-old started games against Sweden and Finland during the week-long camp in preparation for the 2020 International Ice Hockey Federation World Junior Championship.

Saville, of West High fame, turned aside 19 shots in a 4-2 win over Sweden. He started well against Finland but things didn’t end that way in a 6-5 loss.

The Alaskan is a 2019 fifth-round draft pick of the Vegas Golden Knights.

Saville is entering his freshman year at the University of Nebraska-Omaha. He comes to college with a terrific track record over the last two seasons as the 2018 NAHL Midwest Goaltender of the Year and 2019 USHL Goaltender of the Year.
