Freshman Star Zajac Makes Immediate Impact; Helping Tiger Men's Hockey To Weekend Sweep
Bill Alden, Town Topics (11/14/12)

For most hockey players, a year or two of junior hockey after high school is a prerequisite to success on the ice at the college level.

Michael Zajac is proving to be the exception to the rule as he has gone straight from Eagan High in Minnesota to a rousing start in his career with the Princeton University men's hockey team.

Last Friday, Zajac made his debut at Baker Rink as Princeton hosted No. 4 Cornell and emerged as a star of the game, scoring his first career goal and adding an assist to help the Tigers beat the Big Red 5-3.

A day later, the 6'3, 210-pound forward chipped in a goal as Princeton blanked Colgate 4-0 to improve to 2-2 overall and 2-0 in ECAC Hockey play.

For Zajac, the first home weekend of his college career was one he won't soon forget.

"It was unbelievable; I am thankful that my parents came all the way from Minnesota to see it," said Zajac.
