Buffalo Sabres General Manager Darcy Regier announced today the Rochester Americans have signed forward Chris Clackson of the Gwinnett Gladiators (ECHL) to a professional tryout.
Clackson, 24, has appeared in each of Gwinnett’s two games this season. Last year, he registered 24 points (10+14) in 46 ECHL games while splitting the season between Cincinnati and Greenville. The 6-foot, 205-pound forward also appeared in 17 AHL games with the Amerks, recording four points (2+2) and 27 penalty minutes. Prior to his professional career, Clackson played four seasons of collegiate hockey at Western Michigan University.
