February 25th, 2011: is no longer an actively updated source for Clarkson Hockey madness. It was a ton of fun serving the fans of Clarkson Hockey for the 100 or so years that it lasted. will now serve as an archive, forever documenting the rise of the Bonesaw from 2006 - 2009. The Bonesaw is still going strong for Clarkson Hockey, but unfortunately does not have the active staff necessary to keep it updated regularly. If you think that you can get involved somehow feel free to contact us. May the saw be with you.

On Friday night Clarkson was defeated by Minnesota-Duluth 4 to 1.  Of course you have to take into account Defazio's absence.  A game-misconduct was given by a clearly bitter ref.  But that is not the important part, after all the Golden knights have started the season showing EPIC strength.  What is important is why the crowd at the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center numbered only 3700.  The Duluth Entertainment Convention Center (or DECC as it is called by people from NASA who like using acronyms) has seating for over 5300 people.  Where were they?  Apparently not at hockey.   This troubles me for a number of reasons.  First, the University of Minnesota at Duluth has an attendance of more than 11000 students.  Second, the city itself is huge, numbering over 80,000.  The metropolitan area is even bigger, at over a quarter of a million people.  That means less than one and a half percent of the local population went to the game.  Compare that to more than 25 percent of the local population at the Clarkson SLU game.  Finally, hockey is big in the north country of NY but in Minnesota it is THE thing to do.  Have you ever seen Fargo?  The reason for this rant is that Minnesota Duluth needs to step it up.  Even if Lorenzo Music graduated from your school you still have to go to games a cheer on your team, or at least show up.

Time for Some Graduates!

In the past couple of days, I have received several e-mails about past graduates of Clarkson hockey, whereabouts players are and how they are doing. Because of this, I have come up with an excel file of players within the last 4 years, where they have been playing (for a significant time), and just a little bit of their stats. Check it out, some players actually crossed paths with past team-mates.

Once again, the Clarkson women's hockey team had a successful weekend, downing #3 UNH by a count of 6-2 on Friday, and upending #9 BU on Saturday night 7-2. The two wins move the ladies now into sole possession of 3rd place in the national rankings! Keep up the great work!

Led by senior forward Dominique Thibault (who also leads the entire nation with 5G and 8A for 13 points in 8 games played), the Golden Knights only have couple days off until the big match-up with St. Lawrence on Tuesday night. Puck-drop is scheduled for 7PM, so make sure you get out to Cheel Arena to root on the ladies as Clarkson looks to Bonesaw the Saints twice in the same week!

On Saturday night, the Clarkson University Men's Hockey team faced off against the St. Lawrence Saints. This game was hyped up to be one of the biggest games of the season, as the rivalry between in the North Country continues on. With nearly 3,800 fans in attendance, Cheel Arena saw its 5th largest crowd since moving from Walker Center.
It only took the Knights 3 minutes and 43 seconds to open the scoring on the night, as Bryan Rufenach launched a one-timer past the Saint's sieve, Petizian. Calling for the one-timer, Louke Oakley slid the puck over the Rufenach, who powered one past the netminder from the blueline, for a power-play marker that put the Knights up 1-0. SLU(t) later tied the match, on the power play as well. However, the Saints goal was not even fully announced before Julien Cayer banged home a rebound to put the Knights back on top. To add to the lead, Nick Tremblay notched another PPG for Clarkson with 21 seconds left in the first to send the Knights into the intermission, holding a 3-1 advantage.
The second period went with no scoring. Saint Lawrence did replace their sieve, however, with Robby Moss. Karpowich, in the meantime, stayed in net, and finished with 30 saves for the Green and Gold.
Scott Freeman added insurance in the third period to give the Knights a 4-1 lead, which they would not look back on. Karpowich stayed steady in net, and Clarkson finished off the game in fashion, beating their Canton rivalries.
Now owning a 3-2 record on the year, Clarkson will make a trip out West this weekend for two very tough matches against Minnesota-Duluth.

Matt Beca started Saturday night's match-up against RIT right where he left off against Niagara. Scoring two more goals, bringing his year total to 5 in only four games, Beca started the scoring in the 1st and ended the scoring with a insurance marker in the 3rd to give the Knights their second straight victory, 5-3 over the visiting Tigers.

Tim Marks, Scott Freeman, and Adam Pawlick also scored for Clarkson, who improved to 2-2 on the year. Pawlick's goal, which was perfectly placed over the goalie's right shoulder on the power play, was his first as a Golden Knight. Louke Oakley also contributed by adding two more assists. Paul Karpowich picked up the W, stopping 42 of 45 shots faced.

Bringing their season to .500, Clarkson now awaits for the North Country's greatest rivalry this Saturday night, as St. Lawrence makes the trip up Route 11 to Cheel Arena. Mark your calendars, this game is sure to be a highlight of the year between the two clubs. Puck drop - 7pm.

Homecoming Success

The Clarkson Men’s team opened its season tonight in fashion, downing the Niagara Purple Eagles by a count of 4-3 in overtime. Matt Beca would ultimately put up the final tally of the night, with less than a minute left in the extra session. To get to this point, however, a great game full of action was played by both sides.

Clarkson opened the scoring first on a world-class deflection by Tim Marks. Rufenach let a slap-shot go from the blue-line that was tipped over the glove of Niagara’s netminder, Avramenko. The Knights held this lead going into the locker room. However, Niagara was able to slip a couple well placed shots over the shoulder of Richie Laveau to take the lead early in the 2nd period. Clarkson would not quit, however. Adam Pawlick scored his first collegiate goal with the assists going to Louke Oakley and Scott Freeman. Star defenseman Rufenach would then seconds later put the Knights by a score of 3-2 with a snipe of a shot over the shoulder of back-up goaltender Noonan. Again, the Green and Gold entered the intermission with the advantage.

The third period started and both sides were playing relatively even, with a couple spurts of great shifts by the Knights. Niagara eventually tied up the game with a little more than 5 minutes left on an odd-man rush. Clarkson from here on out decided to press their opponent. With a delayed penalty on the way, the Knights were playing 6 on 5 for a good amount of time when Matt Beca was able to slip a rebound into the net with only 30 something seconds remaining. The referees emphatically waved off the goal, and confirmed a kicking action with video replay. Because of this, the game entered into the overtime session.

After a lengthy delay due to an apparent pulled fire alarm, the Knights and Purple Eagles continued action amidst the noise and chaos. Seconds after the alarm was stopped, and a sarcastic response from the crowd, Matt Beca again sent the Arena to their feet (this time for good) by slamming home a rebound with 44 seconds left in the session. The win moves the Knights to 1-2 on the year, with hopes of improving their record Saturday night against RIT. Puck drop, 7:30 PM.

On a side note, the Brigade sold over 100 shirts outside the Arena this afternoon. If you did not get a chance to own the 5 year anniversary shirt, catch us Saturday night in Cheel Arena starting around 5:00. Also, you can order the shirts online by using the shirts tab above. Hope to see everyone at the game Saturday night!
