Fletcher Leaves for North Dakota
Last week, University of North Dakota announced that defenseman Kelsey Fletcher has joined the Sioux squad after her Freshman season at Clarkson. Fletcher had a one goal and three assists, with a +9 skater rating for the Knights, and will likely make a major impact for North Dakota who went 7-27-2 in 2005-2006.
Fletcher was one of Clarkson's top recruits coming in last season, and was a finalist for Ms. Minnesota Hockey. With no players graduating this season, and the battle for playing time growing more competitive this season, we're pleasantly surprised that we haven't heard more announcements like this.
We suspect we'll be hearing from Coach Rick Seeley shortly about this season's recruits. If the rumor mill is any indication, it's going to be a fun season.
