David Clarkson Putting Last Season Behind Him

from Luke Fox of Sportsnet,

So when you ask Clarkson about the disappointment of last season, he’s swift to change the subject. You can’t blame him for not wanting to settle into a discussion of his worst year as a professional hockey player.

“It’s not a secret, right? At the end of the season, I obviously wasn’t happy,” Clarkson says. “No season goes the same, so you have to find a way to figure things out.

“So I went back to work right away and have been training as hard as I ever have. That’s what you have to do. There’s no summer where you train less than the one before. You look at how things went and work from there.”

Clarkson saw a two-and-a-half fewer minutes on the ice per night compared to his last year in Jersey; the third-highest-paid Leaf was seeing the 17th-most ice time (15:06). More critical, that 2:30 was all lost power-play time.
