NORTH YORK, ONT. – For the second straight year, North York Rangers captain Kyle Clarke was named the OJHL’s Humanitarian of the Year for the Ontario Junior Hockey League.
Clarke, 21, has made an incredible impact both on and off the ice. A five-year member of the Rangers Junior A club, Clarke finished his 205-game regular season career with 132 points, including a career-high 50 points in 52 games in 2016-17. A graduate of the Toronto Red Wings organization in the OJHL, Clarke is the all-time leader for games played with the Rangers and is fifth in all-time assists with the club, with 80 of his 132 career points being helpers.
But he wouldn’t help people just on the ice. An ambassador for the Lung Association, Clarke has raised over $5,000 to help build homes and schools in the Dominican Republic through the non-profit organization Live Different, and he assists in running a development program for upcoming Rangers players at the minor novice level.
Clarke won the award back in 2017 due to his incredible service off the ice and we’re proud to have him represent our team as a captain during his career with the Rangers!
