Weekly Practice Report


The test gets even bigger for the Clarkson University men's hockey team after playing its last four games against three ranked opponents.
Clarkson (11-8-2 overall, 5-3-1 ECAC Hockey) will travel to face top-ranked Yale (15-2, 9-1) on Friday at 7 and then will face Brown (6-7-4, 4-5-1) on Saturday at 4.
It will be the first matchup against a No. 1 team for Clarkson since Colorado College came to Cheel Arena two years ago and settled for 1-1 and 2-2 ties with the Golden Knights. Clarkson's last win over a top-ranked team was a 4-3 defeat of Lake Superior State in an NCAA Quarterfinal series in 1991, which marked the school's last Frozen Four appearance.
Clarkson's defense will face a test against Yale, which averages 4.82 goals-per game. The Bulldogs have also converted on 26.6 percent of its power plays.
Two Golden Knights talked about the test facing the team this weekend:
