Fantasy Summary

Energetic forward with grit and some scoring ability


Click to Expand

June 2023 – Clark played the most amount of games so far in his AHL career with 63, he registered 19 points as a career high as well. Unfortunately, he just got in to one Bears’ playoff game on route to the teams’ Calder cup championship. The Capitals did not tender a qualifying offer to him and he will become a UFA on July 1. If a team signs him, he is likely just AHL depth, who may get in to an NHL game or three down the line in a depth checking role. Pat Quinn


January 2023 – In October Clark underwent quad surgery which would see him out six to eight months, so an April to June 2023 return. Just another injury in Clark’s long history of injury. It is unknown if the Capitals will keep him in the system in the off season, but if they do he is at least good AHL depth when he can play. Pat Quinn


September 2022 – Clark is in the final year of his three-year ELC and his time in the AHL has been as a depth player. That is not 100% on him though as he saw just 50 AHL games between 2019-2021, after being consistently injured in junior. Last season he was fully healthy as he played 63 games. If Clark can string together another year or two of actually playing games then he could still have an NHL future. It will be as a depth player considering his time in the AHL has been as a bottom six player. Pat Quinn


January 2022 – Clark has actually played all season healthy in the AHL. At 29 games he is two games away from matching his most games played in any one AHL season, and if he plays 21 more games this season he will match his entire previous AHL career games played. He has 10 points so far this season which is fine for a player coming back from so many injuries and playing a middle six role. Pat Quinn


September 2021 – Clark was sent down to Hershey where he will look to finally have a healthy season in the AHL. Pat Quinn


May 2021 – Well, Clark did improve in 2020-2021 equaling his point total in 2019-2020 with nine, but in 12 less games upping his point per game total from 0.29 to 0.47. Unfortunately, he also got hurt. In the first April game he was hurt and now missed the remainder of the season. Clark really needs to use some “injury-off” spray to avoid all of these injury bugs that love him. He is likely more of a bottom-six style grinder than any sort of power winger than can score in the NHL. Pat Quinn


January 2021 – Clark will look to secure a full-time roster spot, advert any injuries, and increase his scoring totals for the Hershey Bears in 2020-2021. The 2018 second round selection will look to do all he can to become more of a scoring power forward than an energy grinder.  Pat Quinn


March 2020 – Clark was more of a scratch once the calendar turned to 2020 than he was when he got back from injury. He began to be less noticeable in games and that is why he got scratched often. The injuries piling up are concerning and may be the reason for him having 26 shots in 31 games. He will be a bottom six forward if he makes the NHL but he really needs to up his game is he wants to make the NHL.  Pat Quinn


January 2020 – Clark came back around the end of November and is still getting his legs under him, as he only has two points in the 12 games since he has returned. The bottom six role works for Clark and he has played well since returning, the points will not be there much but multi-category production will. Pat Quinn


September 2019 – Clark will start the season on the IR for Hershey and he will be out for a bit with an injury. It is another injury in a line of injuries for Clark. Pat Quinn


June 2019 – Clark played well in the playoffs for the powerhouse 67’s in a bottom six role posting 14 points in 18 games as the team was ultimately eliminated in the OHL finals. Clark was not given the opportunity to be in a scoring role and it is unknown if the Capitals think he can be anything more than a third liner. His first season in the AHL for the Hershey Bears (who typically use older players over younger players) will introduce him to the pro game and hopefully he can find a scoring touch as the Capitals will need scoring down the line as the teams stars are not getting any younger. Pat Quinn


March 2019 – Clark has improved on his points from last season with 46, but the problem is that he is still under a point per game, as he has played in 57 games. To be fair he has been more healthy this season but he has not done a lot to look like he can be a top six scorer in the NHL. He did up his PIMs from 38 to 98 which is pretty surprising. Clark should be back in the OHL for 2019-2020 and then should go to the AHL for a few seasons afterwards. The Caps definitely made a safe choice with Clark as he projects to be more of an NHLer but not a scoring one. Pat Quinn


September 2018 – Clark will head back to Ottawa for his third OHL season where he looks to improve on his past two season totals of 11 and 39 respectively. He still projects to be a bottom six NHLer but an explosion in points before his fourth OHL season would go a long way in changing peoples mind. Pat Quinn


July 2018 – Clark is the son of former NHLer Wendel Clark and is a steady two-way winger. In Clark’s second year in the OHL he scored 39 points in 56 games, an improvement of 28 points, for a poor Ottawa 67’s team. Clark projects more as a bottom six style safe draft pick but does have the skills to develop into potentially something more, as in a middle six style winger. Next season will help define what type of future role Clark can have as it will be his third year in the CHL and many expect his production to improve. Pat Quinn
