Neundorfer and Grant Goeckner-Zoeller, last year's A to Z profile, are Princeton's top two returning scorers.


Key Statistics: Neundorfer finished fourth on the team in scoring with 9 goals and 22 points. Two of the players ahead of him on that list – Dustin Sproat and Luc Paquin – aren’t back this season.

What He Does: Neundorfer is one of the most underappreciated centermen in the ECAC Hockey League. He puts up significant point totals, but also helps the team in other ways. He’s not a player that needs to score points to contribute to Princeton’s success. After playing most of the season on the Tigers’ first line with Dustin Sproat and Grant Goeckner-Zoeller, he was moved between Neil Stevenson-Moore and Darroll Powe and both wingers benefitted.

The Bigger Picture: It’s year two of the Guy Gadowsky regime at Princeton and he’s found a leader in the locker room that he trusts and admires. Neundorfer was the captain of the Tigers as a junior. When Gadowsky made those aforementioned line changes, Neundorfer continued to contribute and helped give the Tigers more scoring depth.

Princeton head coach Guy Gadowsky on Neundorfer's leadership: “He is definitely the captain. His work ethic is right up there on the top rung and he’s gained the respect of his teammates without being a loudmouth. He leads by example.”
