Clark Bishop (5th Round, 127th Pick)
Clark Bishop has been another forward for the Carolina Hurricanes that has out performed their draft ranking. Typically players in rounds 5-7 are guys that are on the verge of bottom 9 roles, however most will peak in AHL. The question remains: Is bishop one of those “on the verge” guys?
The answer for this mystery man remains in question. Bishop was called up to the Checkers in 2016 where he totaled 6 points in 42 games which wasn’t exactly an ideal start. After a stint with the Florida Everblades, Bishop returned the next season with intention to perform better as he recorded 7 goals and 21 assists in 68 games.
While those aren’t exactly eye popping numbers, scoring isn’t necessarily the young Canadians game. Clark Bishop has been a player that has been brought up the NHL squad when the team has needed a spark. Bishop plays with a lot of energy and aggressiveness but he just never really finds ways to create for himself.
Bishop is a great depth forward to have and he will likely get a few call ups if he decides to remain with the team in the future.
