Brett Clark is getting another kick at the can in Colorado.
The veteran defenseman has signed a professional try out with the Avs’ AHL affiliate in Lake Erie, according to TVA’s Renaud Lavoie.
Clark, 36, enjoyed some of his finest NHL campaigns in Colorado, posting career highs in goals (10) and points (39) during the 2006-07 season.
A veteran of nearly 700 NHL contests, Clark was most recently in camp with the Florida Panthers before getting dropped prior to the start of the regular season. Last year, Clark appeared in eight games for Minnesota, recording one assist while posting a minus-9 record.
His last full NHL campaign was in 2011-12, when he scored 15 points in 82 games for Tampa Bay.
