Jaclyn Hawkins (born February 28, 1985) was an ice hockey player for the Connecticut Huskies women's ice hockey program and Boston Blades. Hawkins is the Founder and Owner for the website[1]

Playing careerEdit

Prior to her NCAA career, Hawkins played at South Carleton High School with future St. Lawrence Skating Saints women's ice hockey skater Chelsea Grills. In the first eight games of the 2000 season, both Grills and Hawkins averaged four points a game as the South Carleton Storm started the season with an 8-0 record.[2] Eventually, Hawkins transferred from South Carleton High so that she could compete for the Taft School in Connecticut at the age of 15.


At the end of her freshman season (2004-05), Hawkins finished second nationally among freshman in goals scored with 25 and third in points with 40. [3] Her goals and points numbers led the Huskies, while breaking the program’s single-season marks for both categories, respectively. In addition, she was a four-time Hockey East Rookie of the Week award winner. Her 18 goals in conference play led all Hockey East skaters. She was a contributing factor in the Huskies reaching the Hockey East Championship game as she scored more than a quarter of the Huskies goals. [4]

On October 21, 2006, she set a Hockey East record (and tied an NCAA record) with three power play goals in one game. This was accomplished versus the Maine Black Bears and was part of a five point game. Of note, it was her second hat trick in five games. In her sophomore and junior campaigns, she was the Huskies leading scorer (sophomore numbers: 12 goals, 15 assists and 27 points; junior numbers: 18 goals, 18 assists and 36 points). After her senior season, Hawkins set a program record with 27 assists and finished as the Huskies all-time leading scorer (69 goals, 75 assists, 144 points). [5] In addition, she became the first Husky to win the Hockey East Sportsmanship Award. Hawkins was captain of the Huskies in her junior and senior seasons.


In 2009-10, she relocated to Zurich, Switzerland and competed for the ZSC Lions. Her 55 points (29 goals, 26 assists) led the Lions, as she helped the squad advance to their first appearance in the Swiss Championship game. In addition, she was selected as one of the Swiss League’s Most Valuable Players. [6] Hawkins was selected by the Boston Blades in the 2010 CWHL Draft.[7]
