Former Harvard star Adam Fox was making hockey look easy, again.
In a game against the Dallas Stars’ top NHL prospects in Traverse City, Mich., in early September, the future quarterback of the New York Rangers power play toyed with the Stars, keeping the puck on a string for long touches throughout the contest, snapping off two goals and delivering three tasty helpers to complete his five-point night. ECAC Hockey fans will appreciate the fact that Fox was lighting up goaltender Colton Point, the former Colgate stopper who had been a Crimson nemesis.
“He shut us out a few times in college, so it was nice to finally get a few on him,” said Fox, who shared the moment with fellow Crimson skater Lewis Zerter-Gossage, who also was suiting up for the Rangers. But unlike Fox, Zerter-Gossage was scrambling helter-skelter to make an impression on the scouts, while his longtime Harvard teammate barely broke a sweat.
“Seeing him every day for three years, you get used to it,” said Zerter-Gossage about Fox. “It’s frustrating because I always watch him and think, ‘I wish I could do what he does.’”
