His passion for Princeton and Princeton hockey is strong, and he will be a tremendous resource for our team.”

“I am honored to join the coaching staff at Princeton,” added Davis. “This program has been home for me for some time, and I am excited to enter a new chapter with Princeton hockey. I am thankful to Ron Fogarty, Brad Dexter and everyone involved in the hiring process and cannot wait to get started with our team.”
