Clarkson Golden Knights women's ice hockey seasons
« 2012–13 2014–15 »

The Clarkson Golden Knights women's ice hockey program represented Clarkson University during the 2013–14 NCAA Division I women's ice hockey season.

One of the most unusual features of the regular season occurred on December 14, 2013, when the Golden Knights competed in an outdoor game against the RIT Tigers at Frontier Field in Rochester, New York. The Golden Knights prevailed by a 6–2 tally.

The Golden Knights finished the regular season by winning the ECAC Hockey regular season championship, the team's first title of any kind. Despite losing the conference tournament in the championship game, the Golden Knights still earned an NCAA tournament bid. In the NCAA tournament, the Golden Knights advanced to the national championship game, where they won their first-ever national championship with a 5–4 triumph over the Minnesota Golden Gophers in the championship game. Of note, it was the first national championship in the history of Clarkson athletics. Also, Clarkson was the first top-level NCAA women's hockey champion from a conference other than the Western Collegiate Hockey Association. In addition to the team successes, Golden Knights senior Jamie Lee Rattray also became the first player in program history to win the Patty Kazmaier Award.
