Clarkson Hockey Teams Rated Among the Nation's Best

Both the Clarkson University Men’s and Women’s Hockey teams, coming off successful seasons last year, are projected to be among the elite in the NCAA this winter with high rankings in a national preseason poll.

For the second year in a row, Clarkson Athletics has partnered with B2 Networks to provide LIVE Video Broadcasts of Golden Knight Hockey for alumni, parents, family and friends to view from anywhere in the world on their personal computers!

The USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine Men’s College Hockey Poll ranks the Golden Knights 11th in the nation, while the Women’s Poll has Clarkson also receiving votes, tied for 12th.

The Clarkson Women, guided by first-year co-head coaches Shannon and Matt Desrosiers, begin the 2008-09 campaign this Saturday, hosting Ottawa PWHL in an exhibition contest at Cheel Arena, beginning at 7:00 p.m. The Knights officially open the season at 10th-ranked Boston College on the weekend of October 4-5. Selected 4th in the ECAC Preseason Coaches Women's Poll, the Green and Gold begin league play on November 7 at Brown.

About College Hockey Tickets

Let's face it, college hockey is an addiction! What's better than knowing you've got tickets to the college hockey game of your FAVORITE team?

Message Boards, Painted Face, Fan Signs made of Poster Board (or pizza boxes if you're a student)... Any of this sound familiar? If so, you love college hockey!

Getting tickets to see your favorite team might not be as easy as painting your school's logo on your chest while looking in the mirror, however, a sure fire way of getting college hockey tickets is through a registered ticket broker that carries college hockey tickets.

You might think to yourself, these "ticket brokers" are just online scalpers... That's not the case. Ticket brokers online are part of what is called the secondary ticket market. This secondary ticket market is a pool of brokers across the country that have tickets for events and put them all into a ticket board. Then any website can sell another broker's tickets.

In addition, ticket brokers give you the option of sitting where you want for the big game. If you've ever ordered tickets over the phone, through the box office or from a scalper in the parking lot, you don't have much of an option where you sit. However, a ticket website allows you to browse between dozens and hundreds of tickets available for a single event. This ensures that you can choose your seats!

The prices may be slightly higher for tickets through a ticket website (supply and demand) compared to the face value but weigh the options:

1. You can choose where you want to sit
2. You will not get in trouble for doing business with a scalper
3. You have your tickets in hand before the game
4. Your tickets are guaranteed authentic tickets
5. If the game is postponed, canceled or is not played, you get a full refund
6. Your transaction is processed through a safe and secure server so your identity is guaranteed safe
7. You can always call customer service for help with an order
8. You can often order tickets before they are on sale to the public
9. Tickets will be shipped 2nd day or overnight to any location (even hotels for away games)
10. If you missed your chance at the box office, you've always got a back up with an online ticket broker

If those 10 reasons aren't enough to make you think twice about ordering college hockey tickets online, then you're a tough cookie to sell. But the difference between you and someone else is that if you refuse to buy tickets online, you may be listening to the game on internet radio while someone else is sitting in your front row seats enjoying a great game between conference rivals battling for a playoff spot!

College hockey tickets are your key to the game and you'd better make sure you've got your college hockey tickets. There's nothing like being at the game!
