Potsdam, NY - Playing its season opener at home for the first time in nine years, the Clarkson University Hockey team could not have asked for a better showing to begin its 25th year at Cheel Arena. The Golden Knights dominated Atlantic Hockey foe Rochester Institute of Technology en route to a 6-0 victory before 2,488 fans to start the 2015-16 campaign. Thirteen of the Green and Gold's 18 skaters recorded a point, highlighted by a pair of power-play goals from junior A.J. Fossen. Specialty teams play was near perfect and junior Steve Perry was solid in the crease, posting 21 saves to record his seventh career shutout.
