MADISON, Wis. — Some of the guys Clarkson University is counting on for goal production picked up their first goals of the season and goalie Frank Marotte had another impressive evening as the Golden Knights produced a 4-0 men’s hockey win over No. 6 Wisconsin in a nonconference game before 7,811 fans at the Kohl Center on Friday night.

The Badgers (3-2 overall) entered the game having scored on 38.9 percent of their power plays. Clarkson killed all seven of its penalties. Wisconsin was missing forward Alex Turcotte, who was the No. 5 overall choice by the Los Angeles Kings in the most recent National Hockey League draft, due to illness.

Jack Jacome started things for Clarkson (3-1-1) with a nice backhanded shot of Badgers goalie Daniel Lebedeff at 10 minutes, 32 seconds of the opening period. Haralds Egle assisted on the play.

Captain Devin Brosseau made it 2-0 with an unassisted goal at 10:14 of the second period. Like Jacome, it was Brosseau’s first goal of the season.

Joining the first goal club was Egle, who scored off passes from Josh Dunne and Brian Hurley at 5:15 of the third period to give Clarkson a 3-0 lead.

Dunne ended the scoring with his fourth goal of the season at 11:23 of the third period, with Brosseau and Shane Kuzmeski assisting.

Marrotte made 38 saves for his first shutout with Clarkson and improved his save percentage to .955.
