Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Clark Donatelli
Left-winger Clark Donatelli played a few games with the Minnesota North Stars and Boston Bruins in the early 90s. He was a decent minor leaguer but was most successful at college and the US national team.

Born in Providence, Rhode Island, Donatelli played junior B in Ontario with the Stratford Cullitons then played for the US at the 1984 and 1985 World Junior Championships. This was followed by three years at Boston University where he made the Hockey East second all-star team in 1986. During this time Donatelli also played for his country at three straight World Championships beginning in 1985 as well as the 1988 Calgary Olympics.

Originally drafted 98th overall by the New York Rangers in 1984, the talented forward never played for the club and was dealt to the Edmonton Oilers in March, 1987. He never suited up for Edmonton and sat out the 1988-89 season before signing with the Minnesota North Stars as a free agent. He split the 1989-90 season between the Stars and the Kalamazoo Wings of the IHL. He remained in the "I" with the San Diego Gulls in 1990-91 then returned to the national team in 1991-92 and played in the Albertville Olympics. Following the tournament he inked a deal with the Boston Bruins and played ten regular season games and two post-season matches. Donatelli played four years in the minors before retiring in 1996. His best year was 1994-95 when he scored 22 goals for the IHL's San Diego Gulls.
