In the third game of the series, Clark scored a goal as Canada won the series.[4] In addition, she was the youngest player on the team, and one of only three women from Saskatchewan invited to tryout for the team.[5]

In a December 9, 2016 contest against the Ohio State Buckeyes, she established a career high for most points in a game with five, compiling a goal and four assists in a 7–0 triumph.[8] In each game contested in December, she logged at least one point in every game. For her efforts, she was recognized as the WCHA Player of the Month, the first in her career.
