Clark Recalls Big Year

Andrew Clark had a big year with the Acadia Axemen
Former Brandon Wheat King Andrew Clark guested with Tyler Crayston and myself on this week's edition of Monday Sports Talk on CKLQ.

Clark had 39 points in 28 games in his third season with the Acadia Axemen and was named CIS Player of the Year and a first-team All-Canadian.

"Honestly, I just went in and tried to be consistent from start to finish and I think I did that," said Clark, who was also a finalist for CIS Male Athlete of the Year, "There was one part of the year where we were only playing with ten forwards for about a month so I was getting a lot of ice-time and a lot of opportunities so that might have helped out a little bit."

Clark spent four years with the Wheat Kings from 2005 to 2009, scoring 93 goals and 216 points in 254 career games.

The four-year WHL career also gives him four years of tution and books paid for through the WHL Scholarship program, something Clark feels is good to take advantage of.

"Going to play junior, you don't often think that you're going to use your schooling package," said Clark, "It's great to have my schooling paid for and to get a degree pretty much for free is a great honour."

Clark is majoring in Kinesiology at Acadia but also admits he'd like to give professional hockey a shot once his university career comes to an end.

Here's the complete converation that Tyler Crayston and myself had with Andrew Clark this past Monday...
