Clackson leaves WMU for Philly

Compiled by MiCHO Staff

The Philadelphia Flyers signed their second Michigan college hockey player in two days today and also the second to leave school with eligibility remaining.

Yesterday, the Flyers inked Michigan Tech junior goalie Michael-Lee Teslak and today signed Western Michigan junior forward Matt Clackson.

Clackson, a 22-year-old Pittsburgh native, was Philadelphia's seventh-round pick (215th overall) in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. He had three goals and six points with 87 penalty minutes in 35 games for the Broncos this season.

Matt's younger brother, Chris, just completed his sophomore season in Kalamazoo. He is undrafted.
