Paskaris leaves Adrian to reunite with Fogarty on Princeton’s bench

Princeton head coach Ron Fogarty will have another familiar face with him behind the Tigers’ bench with the announcement Wednesday of Stavros Paskaris as an assistant coach.

Paskaris was an assistant coach at Adrian the past five years under Fogarty, also serving as the Bulldogs’ recruiting coordinator.

“Stavros has shown his capabilities as a recruiter while he was with me at Adrian and I know he will have continued success here at Princeton,” Fogarty said in a news release. “His passion to work with the players on the ice is unmatched and he will be a positive influence on the Princeton hockey program.”

“I’m very excited and grateful for the opportunity to represent Princeton University,” Paskaris added. “I have full intentions on carrying out the mission of Princeton athletics and look forward to building relationships with current, former and future Tigers alike.”

Prior to joining the Bulldogs, Paskaris spent one season as an assistant coach with the Ohio University ACHA Division I team.

During his playing days, Paskaris played at Wayne State from 2004 to 2008, graduating in the final class the school had for NCAA D-I hockey, and following graduation, he finished out the season with the ECHL’s Dayton Bombers.
