Pistons D-man makes NHL scouting mid-season rankings
It’s been a whirlwind start to 2023 for Steinbach Pistons defenseman Warren Clark.
The 2004-born defender was first named one of the the Manitoba Junior Hockey League’s (MJHL) players of the week, and in the second week, he was the only MJHL player to make NHL Central Scouting’s mid-term rankings for North American skaters.
Clark, born in Riverside, Ont., has already announced a commitment to play his college hockey at St Cloud State University in Minnesota.
A rookie defender, Clark has been an anchor on the Pistons blue-line, racking up big minutes and points for a squad which has top-end forward talent.
Clark stands 6’5, 185 lbs according to his NHL draft profile, is sixth among scoring for all defensemen in the MJHL, and first among all rookie blue-liners.
While Clark’s exploits in the MJHL have him on the list, 181 spots above him is superstar in the making Connor Bedard. Less than 250 skaters made the midterm rankings for North American skaters.
