Buglioni, Kirk Invited to Canada’s National Women’s Development Team Camp


COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State rising sophomore Jenna Buglioni and incoming transfer Raygan Kirk were invited to Hockey Canada’s National Women’s Development Team Summer Camp, which will be held from July 29 to August 9 in Calgary.

The 40 players who will attend camp – six goaltenders, 12 defence and 22 forwards – will be split into two teams and participate in practices and intrasquad games from July 29-Aug. 9 at WinSport’s Canada Olympic Park in Calgary. The camp will also feature two scrimmages against Canada’s National Women’s Team from Aug. 7-9.

Buglioni, a Port Moody, British Columbia native, made an instant impact as a freshman for the Buckeyes in 2020-21. She tied for third on the team with 15 points and finished in a three-way tie for tops on the squad with eight goals. A member of the WCHA All-Rookie Team, she was tied for the second in the league for total points among freshmen.

As the WCHA Rookie of the Month in January, Buglioni had six points (3G, 3A) in a pair of wins over Bemidji State Jan. 1-2. She added two goals and an assist in a weekend sweep of Minnesota State Jan. 22-23 and also scored once in a home series vs. No. 2 Minnesota.

No stranger to international competition, Buglioni was named to the tournament all-star team for the 2020 U18 World Championships in Slovakia while competing for Team Canada. She pushed Team Canada to a runner-up finish in the World Championships, scoring four points (1G, 3A) in five games.

Kirk will arrive in Columbus having played in 41 games over the past two seasons with 38 starts at Robert Morris. In 2020-21, while helping the Colonials win the CHA Tournament title and reach the NCAA Tournament, she had a 1.91 goals-against average, .939 save percentage and 433 total stops.

On the international stage, Kirk won gold with Team Canada at the 2019 IIHF U-18 World Championships, starting all four games and earning tournament MVP honors. She was invited to the 2019 Team Canada Summer Showcase camp and had the distinction of being the youngest player to get that honor.
