POTSDAM — Expectations will be high for the Clarkson University women’s hockey team this season.

The Golden Knights, who start the season on Sept. 28 with a home game against the Rochester Institute of Technology, were picked by the ECAC Hockey coaches as the preseason favorite in the league.

Clarkson earned seven of the 12 first-place votes and finished five points ahead of second-place Cornell, which received five votes. Harvard was picked third, followed by Quinnipiac and St. Lawrence University.

Clarkson also earned high national honors, finishing in third in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine women’s national preseason poll, behind defending national champion Minnesota and Boston College.

The Golden Knights also have three of the six players on the preseason All-ECAC Hockey team. Clarkson’s first-teamers include goalie Erica Howe, defenseman Erin Ambrose and forward Jamie Lee Rattray.
