The Clarkson Golden Knights men's ice hockey team is a National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I college ice hockey program that represents Clarkson University. The Golden Knights have been a member of ECAC Hockey since 1962, and play their home games at Cheel Arena in Potsdam, New York.[2] Although it is said[by whom?] that the first Clarkson hockey game was played in 1916 against the Hogansburg Indians, they were established as a hockey club in 1921, under the tutelage of head coach Gordon Croskery, and led by captain Bill Johnson. The Knights won their opening encounter against Alexandria Bay, 6–4, and finished the year with a 2–1 record, their first of 71 winning seasons.

History[edit]

Clarkson, which became the fastest Division I college hockey program to compile 1,000 victories and one of only a few to reach that mark, has compiled a 1375–820–146 record for an all-time winning percentage of 0.619, which is among the best in the country.

The Knights have participated in 20 NCAA Tournaments, including three championship games, won 10 ECAC Hockey Regular Season titles and skated away with five ECAC Hockey Tournament championship trophies. Clarkson has had 36 individuals earn All-American honors since 1928, including 13 who have won the honor twice. Defenseman Fred Dion and center Buzz Williams were the first Golden Knights to receive the honor in 1928–29. The latest Knight to be selected was defenseman Grant Clitsome, who gained All-America status as a senior in 2008.
