The Princeton Tigers Men's Ice Hockey team hosted our Mercer Bulldogs for an exciting practice and a pizza party at Hobey Baker Arena on December 12. Tigers and Bulldogs worked one-on-one and in groups on skating skills and hockey fundamentals like passing and shooting. Some hockey drills, rarely seen in collegiate and professional hockey, included piggyback rides, seated (chair) hockey, and something that can only be described as 'spin-the-player'! The players, parents and families had a fantastic time!
At the helm of the Princeton Tigers is Head Coach Bob Prier, whose leadership extends well beyond the rink. Coach Prier considers himself fortunate to work with Tigers that are ready and willing to lend a hand or work with kids on or off the ice. He notes, "Division I Athletics are grueling, and coursework is equally demanding, so for these guys to make room in their schedule for extra community events...they amaze me every day."
