NEXT STOP: Zane Kalemba makes a stop last winter in his final season with the Princeton University men’s hockey team. The unflappable Kalemba ended his Princeton career as the program leader in wins (57), shutouts (nine), and save percentage (.912). After a stint with the Norfolk Admirals of the American Hockey League this March and taking part in the Tampa Bay Lightning prospects camp in July, Kalemba is looking to catch on with a pro organization later this month before NHL training camps start in September.

Over the course of his sterling career with the Princeton University men’s hockey team, star goaltender Zane Kalemba was known for his coolness under fire.

Coming into the summer tournament season, Jim Tesone was confident that the Princeton Babe Ruth 13-year-old all stars were ready to do some damage.

“We had a nice balance; we were trying to be better and compete at a high level but have more kids involved,” said Princeton manager Tesone.

“We kept them together in the winter; we did work at batting cage and we went to the John Witherspoon gym and did some throwing. In some years, the guys have come out on April 1 and they haven’t touched a bat and glove since the summer. Our guys came in a little better prepared.”
