Posted 34 days ago ago by Kendall Grayson

Kearney, NE. – Tri-City Storm forward Joe Berg has announced a commitment to play college hockey for Princeton University in Princeton, New Jersey. Berg is currently in his 1st season with the Storm, and has skated in all 15 regular season games with the team this season.

 

Joe Berg, 19, of Plano, Texas, was acquired via trade by Tri-City on May 7th, and scored his first goal with the Storm on October 6th in Tri-City’s 5-1 defeat of the Omaha Lancers. Berg recorded assists in back to back games in his regular season debut with Tri-City at the 2018 USHL Fall Classic in the Storm’s wins over the Youngstown Phantoms and the Madison Capitols on September 27th & 28th. Prior to his time with Tri-City, Berg skated in 41 games with the Omaha Lancers during the 2016-2017 & 2017-2018 seasons. Before beginning his USHL career, he skated for both the Dallas Stars’ U16 and U18 programs. With his commitment to Princeton, Berg becomes the 25th player on Tri-City’s current roster to announce a college commitment.

 

“Princeton is a fantastic school, the campus is gorgeous, and the coaching staff there made a really good impression on me on my visit. Playing for an Ivy League school was a goal of mine, and I’m excited to announce my commitment to Princeton. Princeton plays a very fast and skilled game, which is something that I think I can add to. I value that in a hockey team, and I can tell their coaching staff is very personable from the interactions I have had with them. I want to continue to work on adding offense to my game in high paced situations while continuing to focus on playing a complete 200ft game. ” – Forward Joe Berg

 

“One of the reasons players come to play in this league is to have the opportunity to commit to their dream school. It’s a goal of ours to help them achieve that, and couldn’t be more proud of Joe on his commitment to Princeton. He is a tremendous student athlete, committing to an Ivy League school was a dream of his, and it’s something that is well deserved. ”- Head Coach Anthony Noreen

 

The Princeton Tigers men’s hockey team is currently 3-1-1 on the 2018-2019 season, and made its 4th NCAA tournament appearance last season after capturing the ECAC (Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference) Tournament Championship. Although the program has seen several players go on to play in the NHL, the most famous Princeton hockey alumnus is Hobey Baker, who was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in its inaugural class in 1945. Since 1981, the Hobey Baker Award has been awarded to the top player in college hockey.
