The regular season starts Saturday as Clarkson opens with a pair of nonconference games at Niagara.
The Golden Knights, who went 9-20-7 overall last season, will play Niagara at 7 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. Sunday's game will be televised by Time Warner Cable's sports channels and will air locally on channels 324 and 325.
Niagara went 23-10-5 last year, winning the Atlantic Hockey regular-season championship and reaching the NCAA Tournament before falling 2-1 to North Dakota.
The Times season preview will run on Friday and here are some interviews for that story, which will look into Clarkson's attempt to improve its offensive production from last season. Also included will be the interview with Ben Sexton which ran in last week's post.
