The Quinnipiac Bobcats secured a commitment for a future goaltender when Chase Clark of the Tri-City Storm (USHL) announced his commitment to the Bobcats via twitter on August 13th. 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.
