With the 127th pick in the 2014 NHL Draft, the Carolina Hurricanes selected Clark Bishop, a centerman out of the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles in the QMJHL.
Clark Bishop is an extremely gritty, hard working forward in the QMJHL. He makes up for his lack of natural talent with his excellent work ethic and willingness to not give up on a play.
Clark Bishop uses his grit, physically, and effort to do great things both on offense and defense. He is also a fantastic skater. He has great speed and acceleration, which makes him dangerous in many situations.
He only tallied 33 points in 56 games with the Screaming Eagles in 2013-2014. He scored 14 goals and had 19 assists. His point total last season was a pretty nice step up from the 22 points he had in the 2012-2013 season with Cape Breton.
Clark Bishop was on the Canadian U18 team in the World Junior Championships last year. He tallied 1 assist in 7 games played. He helped Canada win the bronze medal in the tournament. He also helped lead Canada to a gold medal in the Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament. Bishop had 1 goal in 5 tournament games.
The 6’0″, 183 pound forward will look to improve his game next season with Cape Breton in the QMJHL.
The Carolina Hurricanes have one more pick in the 2014 NHL Draft following the selection of Clark Bishop in round five.
