Set permissions only for that user - remove the everyone group

I'm not sure if it works but try to set in printer's properties on security tab, access only for that user and domain admins. Remove Domain Users/everyone group if it's there and set it as default printer i remote session.

And another one option (I think it's better) is to prepare a GPO with this settings (default printer in terminal session) and use group filtering for that GPO, pointing only this user i DACL.

It would be helpful for you with GPO's group filtering
