“I have had the privilege to coach some very elite and talented players during my time at Clarkson, and Loren has proven to be one of the all-time great Golden Knights,” said Matt Desrosiers, head women’s ice hockey coach at Clarkson University in a press release. “Loren exemplifies everything the Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award represents; a top performer in the country, competitiveness, performance in the clutch, and a true passion and love for the game of hockey.”
Gabel recorded her 200th career point during her senior season and also surpassed the 100-goal mark. Her 210 career points through the end of the regular season is the highest in Clarkson history, as are her 113 goals in 156 games.
