Despite some initial apprehension, it didn’t take long for Peter Blackburn to fit in as he joined the Princeton Day School boys’ hockey team this season after starring the last two winters for crosstown foe Hun.

“It is a similar school obviously but it is hard transitioning to a big rival school,” said Blackburn. “When I came in, everyone was really welcoming.

When we played our preseason games, we were all out here having a good time.”

The high-scoring junior forward has been giving PDS some good production up front as he has quickly developed a comfort level with his new teammates.
