Stockton Thunder Forward Andrew Clark was named this week’s Sher-Wood ECHL Player of the Week for his stellar play over the week of December 9th-15th. In the Thunder’s past two games Clark tallied 4 goals and 4 assists for 8 points. He netted 2 goals and 1 assist in the December 14th contest against the San Francisco Bulls where the Thunder lost 6-5 in the shootout. The following day, Clark posted a 5 point night, with 2 goals and 3 assists in the team’s 6-5 win over the Bakersfield Condors.
Clark now leads the Thunder in goals (10g), assists (16a) and points (26pts) for the team over 24 games played. He has had three multi-goal games this year and leads the team with 77 shots on goal.
In the press release, Thunder Head Coach Rich Kromm said of Clark, “He’s been great in the last couple of games in terms of producing when we needed it. In those games, we needed some bounce back in a lot of situations and his line provided that for us. Andrew has been great all year, he plays every situation, competes hard, and he’s a pretty complete player for us.”
Not only does Andrew Clark have the points lead with his team, he also tops the list for the league among rookies in total points and assists. The last game against the Condors tied him with Alaska Aces Peter Sivak for most points scored in a single game by an ECHL player, 5.
Clark signed with the Thunder in March 2013 and was a key piece to the team’s post season success, helping Stockton reach the Kelly Cup Finals with 21 points in 22 playoff appearances.
