Clark is a 2002 born 6'6, 218 pound goaltender from Williamsville, NY which is just outside of Buffalo. He was recently selected by the Washington Capitals in the 6th round with the 183rd pick in the 2021 NHL Entry Draft.

Clark spent the majority of the 2020-2021 season with the Jersey Hitmen of the NCDC in which he put up an impressive stat line. In 22 games he 18-2-1 with a 1.92 goals against average and a .935 save percentage. He went 2-0 in the playoffs with a 2.00 goals against average and a .952 save percentage. Clark also spent time with the Tri-City Storm playing in three games. He will play the 2021-2022 season in the USHL before making the trek to Hamden for the 2022-2023 season. 

The commitment of Clark gives the Bobcats another big goaltender in between the pipes following the likes of Keith Petruzzelli, Andrew Shortridge and Eric Hartzell. He is the second commitment to Quinnipiac this August following Christopher Pelosi who committed back on August 2nd.

The Quinnipiac Bobcats men's ice hockey team picked up its first 2005 born commitment when forward Christopher Pelosi verbally committed on August 2nd. This is the Bobcats first commitment since the commitment period opened on August 1st for all high school incoming juniors. A flood of talent committed on August 1st to the usual big programs but the Bobcats got in on the action on day two with the Washington Township, New Jersey native committing to Quinnipiac.


Pelosi is a 6'2, 187 pound left shot forward who spent the past season with the Mount St. Charles 15U AAA program in Rhode Island. In 29 games during a COVID plagued season he had 20 goals and 15 assists. Pelosi was selected by the Muskegon Lumberjacks in the 6th round with the 87th overall pick in the 2021 USHL Futures Draft. He will likely play another season of midget hockey before a potential USHL career followed by his arrival in Hamden at an unknown date.
