Clairmont found the back of the net nine times and added five assists, while leading her Warriors to a 6-3-1 record for the month. Clairmont was on the scoresheet eight out of the 10 games played by the Warriors and is a huge reason why the black and gold found their way into the U SPORTS Top 10 earlier in the season for the second time in program history. She plays key minutes for the Warriors, includingtop 5-on-5 minutes, and is critical to both the power play and penalty kill. Clairmont is first in OUA and fifth in U SPORTS in points with 19 (10G, 9A) and continues to score highlight reel goals, turning heads across the league, including her between the legs breakaway goal that got picked up by both Sportsnet and TSN last weekend.
