It’s usually around this time in January that hockey teams get ready to make that final conference and playoff push.
These are unusual times, however, and the Scott Bertolis Princeton Day team will kick off the season on Wednesday with a game in the refurbished McGraw Rink against perennial state power Delbarton.
The puck drops at 4 p.m. and finally high school ice hockey season has begun. The Colonial Valley Conference is expected to start playing next week.
I think we all understand that these are unique and challenging times, so we are grateful for the chance to just be together, Bertoli said. We’re certainly not as far as we would be in a traditional season, but probably no one else either, so we’re just excited to get out there and compete against someone else.
Princeton Day has always played an aggressive schedule and while there is no Mid-Atlantic Hockey League this season with Lawrenceville, Hun, La Salle, Hill, Wyoming Seminary and Portledge, they have a challenging roster of teams with Delbarton, Don Bosco and Seton Hall.
They will play a limited schedule and could meet the Panthers in February.
The Panthers come out of a season where they’ve struggled a bit, but they’re ready to take some lessons learned and look ready to flip some of those one-goal matches and make a statement this season.
We are sending back a talented group of attackers and have added a few more that should provide some extra attack, an area we really struggled with last year, Bertoli said. We are not returning any of the defenders who played significant minutes for us last year, so we are very young and inexperienced on the blueline. While they are a very capable group, there can be some growing pains as they adjust to the speed of the game.
Sure, the young defense will be tested right out of the gate if Delbarton returns several players.
They are always talented, deep, disciplined and physical, Bertoli said of the Green Wave. We enjoy the challenge of playing against the best and they have been at the top of the NJ High School scene for a long time. We’ve had some very competitive matches with them over the years and we hope for something similar Wednesday, it will be a great yardstick for our group.
Delbarton took last year’s encounter 2-1, winning three of the last four against the Panthers.
PDS is led by senior captains Drew McConaughy, Birch Gorman and Gibson Linnehan, with Tim Miller returning to the goal. There are only seven seniors on the IBS roster, so expect some young talent to start making their presence felt.
There hasn’t been the traditional preseason, nor will there be the excitement of regular season rivalries, the Hockey League mid-Atlantic playoffs, and the state tournament. Still, there are a bunch of kids who love the game and are just happy to be on the ice.
