The Princeton University men’s ice hockey team will make their debut at the NCAA Friendship Four 2019 tournament! The Princeton Tigers will take on The Colgate Raiders on Friday 29th November and take on either The New Hampshire Wildcats or The Northeastern Huskies on Saturday 30th November!
The Princeton University hockey team are members of the Intercollegiate Hockey League (ICHL) in which they compete against fellow Ivy League schools: Brown, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, and Yale.
Ron Fogarty, head coach of the Princeton Tigers has commented on his excitement about his team’s participation in this year’s Friendship Four tournament.
We look forward to participating in the Friendship Four in 2019. It’s a great opportunity for us as a team to not only play internationally for the Belpot Cup but to be able to have a cultural experience in Belfast off the ice. It will be an adventure that the players and staff will remember forever.
Another Team with connections to the Belfast Giants, Princeton University alumni and 2012 Stanley Cup champion Kevin Westgarth began his career with the Princeton Tigers before joining the Giants for the 2014-15 season. Westgarth played a total of 36 games for the Giants and had 20 points!
