On Sunday, October 28, Capitals prospect Kody Clark scored the game winning goal for the Ottawa 67’s, giving them a 4-3 victory over the Sudbury Wolves. Clark, 19, was the Capitals’ second-round pick (47th overall) this past June.
At 0:18 into the overtime period, Macauley Carson was sent to the penalty box for hooking giving the 67’s the power play. Near the end of the power play, at 2:10 into overtime, Clark struck, getting assists from Marco Rossi and Jack Quinn. Clark scored on the team’s tenth shot during overtime.
It was a great day for Clark overall, as he also assisted on the team’s first goal, scored by Graeme Clarke at 17:53. Sasha Chmelevsky also assisted. This particular goal helped the 67’s climb out of an early 2-0 deficit. Clark was named the first star of the game. [video from Ottawa 67’s]
