From the Caps:
Clark and the Capitals have agreed to a three-year contract extension that has the right wing in the fold through the 2010-11 season.I couldnt be happier -- Clark has been a great Captain and leader. I think he is a key component of the Caps locker room, and will be especially important with all the news faces this year.
Almost as soon as Clark first donned a Capitals’ sweater, it was apparent he would one day be the team’s captain. In his first preseason game as a Cap, he went after Buffalo’s Andrew Peters, a 6-foot-4, 247-pounder who had just rag-dolled Washington’s Miroslav Zalesak into the wall from behind. Four inches shorter and 50 pounds lighter, Clark jumped right into the fray on his first night in his new sweater, going to the aid of a guy he barely knew, a guy who would be headed back to Europe for the season a few weeks later.
