Every fourth week we'll take a break from following Clarkson's alumni in the pros to tell you about the players who will be wearing Clarkson uniforms in the near future.
This first installment will introduce you to the players expected to join Clarkson either next year or the following season.
As of now six players are expected to join the Golden Knights next season and several of them are having standout seasons so far.
Goalie Gabe Antoni was named the U.S. Hockey League's co-Goaltender of the Week. Antoni, who is playing for Dubuque, is 4-0 so far this season with a 1.05 goals-against average and a .953 save percentage.
