Getting To Know the Freshmen Tigers: Jeremy Germain

Jeremy Germain

Jeremy Germain spent the 2015-16 season with Chilliwack of the BCHL. Through 76 games he posted 48 points. Prior to playing for the Chiefs, Germain played for the CT Wolf Pack after concluding his playing career at Choate Rosemary Hall.

Eye On The Tigers caught up with Germain to see what the incoming freshman had to say:


Why did you choose Princeton University?

I chose Princeton because it is exceptional in both academics and athletics. I also fell in love with the school after playing in the Lawrenceville Tournament every year with Choate.

What are you most looking forward to?

I am looking forward to spending a lot of time in probably the most historic rink in the NCAA, and meeting new, exceptional people from all over the world.

When did you get into hockey? What’s your earliest memory?

I got into hockey when I was around three or four, my earliest memory being a learn to skate practice at the Northford Ice Pavilion near my house.

What NHL team did you grow up rooting for and why?

I grew up liking the Blues because of Chris Pronger, but now I don’t really have a favorite team.

What’s the biggest challenge you’ve faced in hockey?

I fractured my leg when I was 13, which took about a year to get back up to game speed and fully recover from.

What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever seen when playing hockey?

There’s a lot but a personal one that comes to mind is when I shot the puck over the net, it hit the glass and came back over the net, hit the goalies back and went in. Also once in mites (about six-eight years old) a kid on the other team skated from his bench and gave our fans the middle finger.

Who’s the most influential person in your hockey career?

I have two big hockey influences in my dad and my grandfather, both of whom were at virtually every practice and game for the first 15 years of my life, and who both played professional hockey, my dad being a defenseman and my grandfather a goalie.

What’s the most exciting experience you’ve ever had?

When my dad and I visited my sister in Bangkok and got to explore both the city and the Thai countryside.

What do you plan on majoring in/what are your academic interests?

I plan on majoring in Economics, but I like History and English as well.

What do you hope your legacy at Princeton University will be?

I hope to leave the hockey program in great shape by the time I graduate and to take advantage of as many of Princeton’s academic opportunities as I can.
