MADISON, Wis. – Head men’s hockey coach Mike Eaves has announced the signing of Jason Clark (Eden Prairie, Minn.) to a national letter of intent. Clark will join the Badgers for the fall of 2010.
Clark, a 6-2 and 183-pound forward, comes to Wisconsin from Shattuck-St. Mary’s in Faribault, Minn. An Eden Prairie, Minn., native, Clark skated in 54 games in 2009-10, recording 23 goals and 46 points, as well as a team-high 80 penalty minutes. He also totaled 19 goals and 45 points in 51 games played during 2008-09 for Shattuck.
Slotted 73rd among North American Skaters in NHL Central Scouting’s Midterm Rankings, the left-handed shooting Clark spent his freshman and sophomore years at Eden Prairie High School.
“Jason will be a power forward for us,” said Eaves. “He’s very athletic and is a good skating, puck-skilled forward with a big shot.”
Below is Wisconsin's complete list of signings of student-athletes expected to join the program for the fall of 2010.
