“We are extremely proud of Nikita and his family for making their commitment to Princeton. What a great opportunity for Nikita to advance in the hockey and academic portions of his career,” said Titans’ General Manager and Head Coach Craig Doremus. “Nikita has come to New Jersey and worked extremely hard to improve his game and has quickly become a big part of our team. He is an extremely talented, mature young man who has come to the rink every day to work hard and become an even better hockey player. We are extremely happy for him and his family on earning this tremendous opportunity and we look forward to him continuing to be a big part of our journey as we pursue the Robertson Cup Playoffs.”
