FIRST-EVER TRIP TO ROCHESTER AWAITS TIGERS

After last year’s series at Hobey Baker Rink, Princeton makes its first trip to Rochester this weekend for a pair of games at RIT. Last year saw a pair of one-goal wins for RIT, the first a 5-4 victory and the second a 1-0 overtime result. Matt Kellenberger ’22 scored twice for Princeton in the first contest, a performance which made enough of an impact on the RIT staff that Kellenberger is now playing for RIT as a grad transfer. In the Saturday game, Aidan Porter made 20 saves in the 1-0 loss, the only goal for RIT coming on a power play in overtime.

PEARSON NAMED ECAC GOALIE OF THE WEEK AFTER TWO SHUTOUT WINS

Ethan Pearson made 25 saves for his first career shutout — and first career win — in a 3-0 victory at Yale. For good measure, Pearson also picked up his first career point with an assist on Princeton’s first goal of the game. He then followed up with a 21-save shutout at Brown on Saturday. His work earned ECAC Goalie of the Week and Everything College Hockey Goalie of the Week.

AMONG THE NATION’S TOP TENDERS

Ethan Pearson enters the weekend ranked No. 8 in the country in GAA (1.82) and No. 10 in save percentage (.930). His two shutouts are No. 6 in the country.

GATHERING GORMANS

In addition to captain Liam Gorman, the Tigers also will line up his younger brother, Brendan, this season. The brothers join their father, Sean, as Princeton Hockey players. Sean is a 1991 Princeton grad who was drafted by the Boston Bruins out of college. Both Liam and Brendan played high school hockey at St. Sebastian’s before joining the Tigers as true freshmen. Last year with St. Sebs, Brendan tallied 49 points (11g, 38a) in 25 games while earning ISL MVP honors.

LITTLE BRO, BIG GOALS

Brendan Gorman is tied for the team-high with three goals through seven games to open his Princeton career, scoring the Tigers’ first goal of the season at Harvard and connecting in back-to-back games against Colgate and Yale.

GORMAN FAMILY SCORING RACE

1. Sean Gorman — 23 pts (5g, 18a) in 99 games

2. Liam Gorman — 15 pts. (6g, 9a) in 65 games

3. Brendan Gorman — 4 pts. (3g, 1a) in 7 games
