Eight Newcomers To Join Men’s Ice Hockey In Class Of 2026 – Princeton University Athletics – Princeton Athletics


A group of eight newcomers the 100th season of hockey at Hobey Baker Rink will be their first as Princeton men’s ice hockey players as head coach Ron Fogarty has welcomed eight skaters to the Tigers as members of the Class of 2026.

Five forward and three defensemen are part of the incoming class, with six hailing from the United States and two from Canada. Three of the U.S.-born players are from Massachusetts, while one each hails from Connecticut, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The two Canadians call Saskatchewan and British Columbia home.

In terms of their hockey careers before Princeton, four players most recently played in the BCHL, while others come to the Tigers after seasons in the USHL, AJHL, SJHL and US High School systems.

“We are looking forward to these young men beginning their Princeton careers,” said head coach Ron Fogarty. “There is an outstanding balance of skill and grit in this group, but most important was how they all have fit right in with the culture and mindset we are building within our program. Each one of these young men — alongside our returning players — have committed to doing whatever is asked of them to help the team win. We are thrilled to have this group on campus and excited to get to work.”
