She is the first player from Ottawa, and just the 5th Canadian ever, to win the award which is in its 17th year.
Rattray currently ranks second in the NCAA in both points (64) and goals (28), including a nation-leading nine power-play markers. She has recorded 20 multi-point games in Clarkson's 40 outings to date, including two five-points showings (Nov. 22, 2013 vs. Princeton University and Jan. 31, 2014 vs. Union College). Additionally, Rattray has set Clarkson’s single-season records for goals, assists and points, as well as the school’s career records in both goals and points.
"Jamie Lee is the definition of hard work paying off," said Matt Desrosiers, co-head coach of Clarkson University. "The energy she brings to every practice and game is unmatched and is infectious to the rest of her team. She embodies everything the Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award represents; a top performer in the country, competitiveness, performance in the clutch, personal character, and most importantly a true passion and love for the game of hockey."
Away from the rink, Rattray has been active in the Clarkson women’s hockey team’s participation with the Lil’ Knight Club, which volunteers with youth hockey players in the area. She also helped paint the Helping Hands building in Potsdam, N.Y., and has assisted in fundraising for the Dalton Guyette Memorial Award, which is given annually to provide opportunities to less fortunate children near Clarkson’s campus.
