Adam Clendening – Defenseman
DOB: 10/26/1992 Ht: 5’11 Wt: 195
Drafted: 2nd round (36th overall) in 2011 – Boston University
Clendening finished two years at Boston University with fantastic sophomore campaign (33 points in 38 games). He signed his entry-level deal with the Hawks this summer and will work with NHL veteran Nick Leddy and returning IceHogs defenseman Shawn Lalonde as a puck-mover on the blue line in Rockford.
The organization is really high on Clendening, and he is considered by many a potential top-four defenseman at the NHL level.
