Mississauga, ON – The Mississauga Steelheads are proud to announce the signing of forward Everett Clark to a standard OHL player contract. Clark was selected by Mississauga in the 5th round (90th overall) at the 2012 OHL Priority Selection. The 5’10, 185lbs forward was a member of the 2012-13 OMHA Midget ETA “AAA” championship winning Whitby Wildcats.
Clark, a native of Whitby, Ontario appeared in 20 games for the Whitby Wildcats Midget AAA team this season, posting 23 points (9 goals, 14 assists) and adding 54 penalty minutes. Clark’s skating ability will be a welcome addition to the Mississauga lineup as he looks to join former teammate and current Steelheads forward Bobby MacIntyre next season. "Everett is a playmaking forward who was an important member of a successful Whitby Wildcats AAA Midget club. We are excited about incorporating Everett's skill and competitiveness into our line-up" said Steelheads Head Coach and GM James Boyd.
