Capitals Sign Forward Kody Clark
The Washington Capitals announced that they signed Kody Clark, a 19-year-old Canadian. The 6’2″ 184-pounder registered 39 points in 56 games in the OHL last season. The three-year entry-level contract will carry an average annual value of $870,000. The Capitals drafted him this year with the 47th-overall pick in the second round. Clark has done an incredible job and looks very promising for the team.
The King City, Ont., native recorded 12 points (7g, 5a) in the opening 15 games of the 2017-18 season, passing his point total during his rookie OHL season with Ottawa in 2016-17 (7g, 4a in 57 games).
Clark, who wrote on his Instagram account about how he was playing “From one capital to another,” is the son of the former NHL player Wendel Clark, who played for the Toronto Maple Leafs, Quebec Nordiques, New York Islanders, Tampa Bay Lightning, Detroit Red Wings and the Chicago Blackhawks.
The young forward was ranked 19th overall among North American forwards by NHL Central Scouting. He participated in the Prospect Showcase this year in Florida and was tied for second on the team in goals and tied for fourth in points. He also played in 2 of the preseason NHL games.
