Princeton Tigers women's hockey season preview

The thrilling atmosphere of the hockey season is about to be back. Princeton's women's hockey team is about to start their season this week and we couldn't be more excited for it.

What To Expect This Season

Last season, the Tigers had an overall 15-15-1 record. They had eight wins and five losses at home but went 7-9s away from home, something they will have to work on this year. They were able to make it to the ECAC playoffs, but lost all three games to Colgate in the quarterfinals, which took them out of the competition for the title. Other problems that the 2022-23 team faced were the shot percentage which affected their Conversion Percentage, and the Power Play.

In the season that marks the anniversary of 100 years of the Hobey Baker Rink as the Orange and Black team promises to do their best to be able to get the ninth Ivy League championship. The team will be led by Sarah Filler once again for her final year. The forward, who gained the captainship in the 2020 season, is the fourth player in the history of the program to hit over 200 career points. Names such as Kate Monihan, Stefanie Wallace, and Daniella Calabrese are also gonna be there for their senior year at Princeton.

The new additions consist of the defense of Teja Gatfield, Maggie Johnson, Wallis York, and Gabby Kim, forwards Ani Kozak and Callista Chong and goalie Uma Corniea. Forward Sarah Paul is also back in the fold from a season-ending injury last year.

Head coach Cara Morey is back for her seventh year leading the squad, her 13th year overall with the program. On her watch, the Tigers have won its first ECAC tournament title and the Ivy League championship in the 2019-20 season and qualified for two NCAA quarterfinals. To complete the team, Jamie Lundmark is the director of player development and assistant coach alongside Melissa Samoskevich and Daniel Gould.

On September 22nd, they faced the University of Toronto in an exhibition game and won in a shutout. The score was 3-0 and the scorers were Izzy Wunder, Kate Monihan, and Mia Coene. 

The opening night: Robert Morris @ Princeton

The Tigers will take on the Colonials for a two-game series on October 13th at 6 p.m. and October 14th at 1 p.m. The home team will try to keep their unbeatably as the other teams have lost both of their conflicts in the 2011-12 and 2012-13 seasons - the last game lost 6-3. It will be a very interesting game as this is a comeback season for the Robert Morris University team, which had taken a two-year hiatus from competing
