Senior Meland Has Superb Game in Baker Finale but PU Men's Hockey Drops Heartbreaker to Yale
Bill Alden, Town Topics (2/27/13)
For Eric Meland and his classmates on the Princeton University men's hockey team, there was a short-term goal when they took the ice at Baker Rink for Senior Night.
"We wanted to win," said senior defenseman Meland. "A win would go a long way to securing home ice so it isn’t our last game here."
The night's festivities, which included a ceremony at the first intermission with the six seniors and their families, prompted Meland to reflect on the longer-term significance of his Tiger hockey experience.
"Princeton hockey really helps you grow as a person," said Meland, whose fellow seniors include Rob Kleebaum, Will MacDonald, James Kerr, Michael Sdao, and Mike Condon.
