Brandon’s Andrew Clark has been named a CIS All-Canadian for the second straight season.
The former Brandon Wheat Kings centre, a fourth-year player with the Acadia Axemen men’s hockey team, was named a second-team All-Canadian at Wednesday night’s CIS awards banquet in Saskatoon where the national championship begins today. Clark, a kinesiology student, was named a first-team all-Canadian and the CIS player of the year last season.
The 5-foot-10, 180-pound Clark, a former 40-goal scorer for the Wheat Kings in his fourth season in the WHL in 2008-09, led Acadia in scoring this season and finished second in the Atlantic Conference with 14 goals and 32 points in 28 games.
Clark, who led the AUS in shots (126), also posted a +6 plus/minus rating and was tied for third in the league with three game-winning goals for the 17-9-2 Axemen. Acadia was eliminated by Saint Mary’s 3-1 in the best-of-five AUS semifinals. Saint Mary’s is one of six teams slated to compete in nationals this week.
