Brett Clark’s chance to make the Florida Panthers roster is at an end.

The team released Clark from his professional try-out agreement in their latest round of roster cuts. The 36-year-old veteran of 14 seasons was looking to latch on with the Panthers after a brief stint with the Minnesota Wild last year.

In Minnesota, Clark played just eight games finishing with one assists and a minus-9 plus-minus rating. He averaged just over 14 minutes of ice time.

Through his career he’s had stops in Montreal, Atlanta, Colorado, and Tampa Bay to go along with his short stop in Minnesota. He joins Ian White in the free agent pool after he was released from his try-out with Winnipeg yesterday.
