Hockeytown: Princeton, N.J.
Roman Uschak, New York Hockey Journal (12/1/12)
Mention the word Princeton to most people and it conjures up images of staid academia, ivy-colored walls and, perhaps, the American Revolution.
More and more, it also has stood for hockey, ranging back to the turn of the 20th century at a world-class university to the rise of youth groups a half-century later. Those separate entities have worked to mold Princeton, long known for college basketball and lacrosse, into an up-and-coming hockey town.
Former Princeton University men’s hockey coach Guy Gadowsky, who guided the Tigers from 2004 to 2011 following a five-year stint at Alaska-Fairbanks, saw how good things could be in central New Jersey — and played more than a small role in it himself.
