Hurricanes Choose F Clark Bishop With 127th Overall Pick

Clark Bishop - Jeff Zelevansky

The Carolina Hurricanes selected high-energy QMJHL forward Clark Bishop with their fifth-round pick.

The Hurricanes looked to bolster their future bottom six forwards with the selection of QMJHL forward Clark Bishop with their fifth round pick, the 127th overall at the NHL Draft.

Bishop had 33 points and 54 penalty minutes in 56 games with Cape Breton last season and also played for Canada’s Under-18 entries at both the Ivan Hlinka and U-18 World Championships, teaming with Carolina first-round pick Haydn Fleury. He also played for Team Orr in the 2014 CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game.

Bishop is an energy player who plays a solid two-way game, is "relentless on the forecheck" according to McKeen’s Hockey's draft guide, and was an alternate captain with the Screaming Eagles last season.

Bishop was the third overall pick in the 2012 QMJHL Draft, selected behind only Daniel Audette (son on former NHLer Donald Audette, taken 147th overall by Montreal) and Alex Pepin (taken 114th overall by Colorado).
