Season Preview: Jason Clark

Jason Clark
Position: LW
Height: 6'1"
Weight: 183 lbs
Birthplace: Eden Prairie, Minnesota, United States
Acquired: Draft - 3rd round, 82nd overall, 2010 draft

2010-2011 Team: University of Wisconsin Badgers
2010-2011 Stats: 14 GP - 0 G - 1 A - 1 P - 6 PIM
2011-2012 Team: University of Wisconsin Badgers 
Team role: Bottom 6 forward

Last year:

As expected of a freshman hockey player, Clark did not play much and when he did, was not utilized. Wisconsin has a very good team and Clark was not expected to get much playing time when players like Craig Smith and Mark Zengerle, one an older player and one who is simply shining at UW.  Both represent the main part of the offense for UW. Clark played 14 games as a bottom 6 forward and only had 1 assist.


If he can prove himself, Clark could find himself as a more utilized 3rd line player. He's not a dynamic player by any means, but his hockey sense is very efficient and there could be a way he could find himself some chemistry and stability on UW's bottom 6 as a sophomore.


27 GP - 4 G - 7 A - 11 P


AT: Clark has potential, which is why he was drafted in the third round and in the top 100. He was a producing player with good hockey sense for his age at Shattuck St. Mary's, the famous high school in Minnesota that has produced many hockey greats currently playing in the NHL, including the Islanders' own Kyle Okposo. He certainly needs to improve his hockey skills and will probably not be signed by the Islanders before his time at UW is done unless he really proves himself, but we know he has the potential to produce.
