Clark is coming off a one-year, $550K contract that also paid him $67.5K in the minors, which is where the 24-year-old has spent most of his time since being drafted 37th overall in 2009. Last season, Clark played just 28 total games. Nine with Anaheim, and 21 with Lake Erie, Colorado's AHL affiliate. He collected just a point for each team.
