Clifton, had a breakout junior season in which he scored 43 points (19 goals and 24 assists) in 39 games and was a coveted free agent last season but returned for his senior season with brother Connor to finish up his degree. In 155 games played for Quinnipiac, Clifton had 95 points (44 goals and 51 assists) and help build a culture of winning in Hamden in his four years with the program. It is not not known at this time if Clifton will report directly to the Sharks or their top American Hockey League affiliate, the San Jose Barracuda. Congrats to Tim and his family on this great accomplishment.
