Chris Clark is an American right winger on the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Clark was drafted in 1994 by the Calgary Flames. He played his college hockey at Clarkson University, and joined the Flames in 1999. He helped the Flames reach the Cup Finals in 2004, scoring 25 points and recording 106 penalty minutes. After the lockout, Clark was traded to Washington, where he spent time on the top line with superstar Alexander Ovechkin, and saw his point totals rise dramatically. In his first two seasons, Clark recorded 50 goals and 93 points. He missed most of the 2007-08 season with a knee injury. He was named team captain in 2006, and played the next three seasons in Washington. The season after being named captain, he had the best year of his career, scoring 30 goals and 54 points, but that was because he played with Alexander Ovechkin. He scored just 15 points over the next two seasons and was traded to Columbus at the 2010 trade deadline for Jason Chimera. He will be one of the top checkers on the Blue Jackets in 2010-11.
Clark was captain of Team USA at the 2007 World Hockey Championships.
