The Providence Bruins announced that the team has released forward Chris Clark from his Professional Tryout Agreement, six games after signing the South Windsor, CT native.
The 35-year old Clark, who has played in 607 NHL games with the Calgary Flames, Washington Capitals and Columbus Blue Jackets, was scoreless in six games with the Boston Bruins' AHL affiliate. He spent last season with the Blue Jackets, scoring five goals and ten assists in 53 games.
During 13 seasons in the NHL, Clark notched 214 points and 700 penalty minutes. He was chosen as the Washington Capitals' captain in 2006, ultimately serving as the third longest-tenured captain in team history.
After being drafted in the third round of the 1994 NHL Entry Draft by Calgary, Clark played five seasons with the Flames. The forward was traded to Washington after the lockout in 2004-05, and posted his best season in 2006-07 when he notched 30 goals and 24 assists.
