The Waywayseecappo Wolverines are excited to announce that forward Jack Clarke has signed a letter of intent for the 2022-23 season.
Clarke has played the last two seasons with the Maple Leaf Athletic Club Under-18 AAA team in the Alberta Elite Hockey League U18 AAA, being part of the captains group on the team.
The Edmonton, Alberta product had 24 points (13 goals, 11 assists) in 36 games last season. Jack has some experience at the Jr A level, suiting up with the Sherwood Park Crusaders in the AJHL for five games.
The 18-year-old says the organization, community and fanbase was all key reasons on his decision to sign with the Wolverines.
“He showed me that there was a lot of success with the team,” says Clarke. “And that was major reason for me wanting to sign.”
Jack says he learned a lot from his five games in Sherwood Park, getting a taste of junior hockey.
“It’s so much more fast-paced, with bigger guys,” says Clarke. “It’s all about playing in a system and the Crusaders had a lot of depth, and I’m expecting the same out in Waywayseecappo .”
Head Coach Taylor Harnett says he’s heard nothing but great things about his leadership and skill set.
“We are extremely excited to be adding Jack next season,” says Harnett. “We think that his style will fit perfectly as a Wolverine.”
On what kind of player you can expect of Jack, he says he is a playmaker with great vision that can draw defenders away, with great speed and a great shot.
