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


Why did you choose Princeton University?

I chose Princeton due to the countless opportunities it provides. I have the opportunity to get the greatest education on earth, play hockey, and create a legacy on and off the ice.

What are you most looking forward to?

I am most looking forward to meeting all the guys and working together towards our athletic and academic goals.

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

I was pretty much born into hockey and started skating around the age of two. My earliest memory is scoring my only goal of the season in the mini-mite house league championship game.

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

I grew up cheering for the Ottawa Senators since Dany Heatley was my favorite player. When he scored 50 in ’07, I permed my hair so I could look like him.

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

My biggest challenge would have to be my height. I try to use it to my advantage though.

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

In juniors I saw a fan get in a fistfight with an opposing team’s mascot. It was tough to pay attention to the game with a 6-feet tall squirrel throwing uppercuts.

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

My parents are easily the most influential people. My dad taught me the game and my mom taught me passion by driving across the country through snow storms for tournaments.

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

Opening up my acceptance letter to Princeton. I was full of euphoria and knew all my hard work had paid off.

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

I am planning on majoring in economics. I have a broad range of academic interest though.

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

I want to be known as the team who created a winning culture at Princeton. I believe we are on the right track to becoming a winning team and everyone is buying in to make that happen.
