USA Tops Princeton, 4-1
The U.S. Under-18 Team skated into Hobey Baker Rink on Saturday evening, and skated out with a 4-1 victory over Princeton University in an exhibition contest.
Following a scoreless first period, Kieffer Bellows, who is committed to Boston University, scored two goals for Team USA, while Trent Frederic (Wisconsin) and Keenan Suthers (Western Michigan) had the others. Clayton Keller set up both of Bellows' goals, while Jake Oettinger (BU) finished with 21 saves.
Princeton, which sat some of its regulars Saturday after a 6-3 non-conference loss at Penn State on Friday night, got its lone goal from David Hallisey to make it 3-1 at the time. The Tigers also got 13 saves from starter Ben Halford, and five stops in relief duty from Austin Shaw.
The Tigers are now off until hosting ECAC rival Quinnipiac on Dec. 29. Team USA won at NCAA Division III Neumann College, 9-1, on Sunday
