Princeton senior captain Mike Moore, a 2008 first-team All-Ivy and All-ECAC selection, signed with the National Hockey League’s San Jose Sharks on Tuesday. Moore will report to the team’s America Hockey League affiliate in Worcester and make his pro debut this season.
Moore, who recently completed his senior season, served as the team captain of Princeton’s first ECAC Championship winning team in 10 years. He also helped lead the Tigers to the Ivy League Championship and an NCAA Tournament appearance. He was the 2008 ECAC Hockey Defensive Defenseman of the Year and led Princeton defensemen in goals (seven), assists (17) and points (24) in 34 games.
The six-foot-one, 200-pound native of Calgary, Alberta, finished his Princeton career with 52 points (14 goals, 38 assists) and 154 penalty minutes in 121 games.
Mike Moore will report to San Jose's AHL affiliate, the Worcester Sharks, and wear Number 8. Worcester plays three times this weekend as they close out the AHL regular season.
