The Montreal Organization has faxed in its selection from Abroad, and the fan base is stoked to select with the 114th overall selection:

Graeme Clarke! 

 

Graeme Clarke Ottawa 67's

Graeme Clarke made a name for himself playing alongside Jack Hughes in 2016-17, racking up 82 goals in 81 games before being selected sixth overall by the Ottawa 67’s in the 2017 OHL Draft. With Ottawa laden with veteran OHL players, Clarke began his rookie OHL season in a bottom-six role.

Despite a slow start to his OHL career, Clarke was selected to play for Canada White in the 2017 World U-17 Hockey Challenge. The result was disappointing, with his squad losing in the bronze medal game, but Clarke impressed with two goals and six points in six games.

Over the remainder of his rookie season, Clarke continued to show flashes of potential though he was held back from key offensive opportunities and power play minutes. Ottawa’s season came to a disappointing end, as the 67’s fell in the first round in five games to the eventual OHL Champion Hamilton Bulldogs. Despite the loss, Clarke wrapped up a solid rookie season with 14 goals and 25 points, placing him inside the top ten in scoring for all OHL rookies.

Heading into his second season, Clarke made adjustments in the offseason to improve his explosiveness and skating stride, and his hard work was rewarded with a selection to Canada’s team for the 2018 Hlinka Gretzky Cup. Playing in a mostly supporting role, Clarke managed two goals and three points as Canada captured the gold medal over Team Sweden.
