Blind River to Dryden
November 29, 2021
Dryden Ice Dogs of the Superior International Jr. Hockey League have netted a new goalie via the Blind River Beavers of the Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League.
Eric Clark, a 6-foot-4, 195 pound twine tender, was one of three goalies in Blind River, where he posted a 2-1-0 record with a 3.00 goals against average and .917 save percentage for the Beavers, who are in third place in the West Division of the NOJHL.
Clark, who has a 2002 birth date, joins a third place Dryden team that has a record of 12-8-1 in the seven-member SIJHL. Notably, Jordan Belley, who has a 2001 birth date, has played in most of Dryden’s games to date and has a record of 7-6-1 with a 2.38 goals against average and .931 save percentage.
Back to Clark, who is originally from Maple Ridge, B.C., he — besides playing in the NOJHL for Blind River — has previous junior A experience in the Pacific Jr. Hockey League, the British Columbia Hockey League and the Saskatchewan Jr. Hockey League.
