Capitals Captain Chris Clark's season hasn't shaped up the way his team or his fans expected. He's contributed only one goal and five assists in 32 games. Clark only played 18 games last season, thanks to multiple injuries. He missed 14 games this season, and has been a healthy scratch on several occasions since returning in December.
So, what's up with Clark? Turns out he's been plagued by a wrist injury suffered in training camp that hasn't healed. Caps General Manager George McPhee announced today that Clark will have surgery on Thursday to repair the wrist, which will take Clark out for the rest of the regular season. There's a possibility he could be back if the Caps make it deep into the playoffs.
Coach Bruce Boudreau stands behind Clark retaining his role as captain when he's healthy and returns to active status. Caps fans wish Chris Clark a speedy recovery!
