The Princeton Tiger Pewees were honored to live up to the legacy of the Olympic gold medal team! We interviewed Jack Zimet and Oisin O’Dell, members of the Princeton Tiger Pee-Wees. They seem to be really dedicated to hockey, but it is not just a one person commitment, it is also a family commitment too. They like to play the game and hang out with new friends that are on their hockey team. Oisin and Jack like playing because their team works well together, and they make new friends. Not only are they friends with their teammates, but they have also built trust with their friends. At the end they felt like they did a good job and their hard work paid off.
