Boasting one of the best records in the country and a third-place ranking in the national polls, the Clarkson University Women’s Hockey team returns to Cheel Arena this weekend looking to continue the outstanding play that has lifted the Golden Knights to the best start in the program’s 10-year history.

Guided by fifth-year co-head coaches Matt and Shannon Desrosiers, and assistant Matt Kelly, Clarkson posts an 8-2 overall record and stands at 2-0 in ECAC Hockey. The Knights, led by junior captain Carly Mercer (Exeter, ONT) and senior assistant captain Hailey Wood (Lethbridge, ALB), resume conference action after a non-league series out west. The Green and Gold host Yale at 7:00 p.m. on Friday and then battle Brown on Saturday at 4:00 p.m.
