Emily Clark (born November 28, 1995) is a Canadian ice hockey player for the Montréal section of the PWHPA and has competed for the Canadian national Under-18 team in 2011. She made her debut with the Canada women's national ice hockey team at the 2014 4 Nations Cup. In the autumn of 2014, she joined the Wisconsin Badgers women's ice hockey program. She also competed with the Canadian National team at the 2018 Winter Olympics where she helped Canada win a silver medal.
During the 2010–11 season, Clark was the alternate captain for the Saskatoon Stars as they reached the Saskatchewan Female Midget AAA Hockey League championship game for the second consecutive season. In addition, she won a gold medal at the Mac's Tournament with the Stars. She was part of Team Saskatchewan which competed at the 2011 Canada Winter Games. In 2009–10, Clark won the Tier 2 Saskatoon city championship with the Saskatoon Flyers.
In August 2011, Clark competed with the Under 18 Canadian National Women's ice hockey team in a three-game series versus the United States. In the third game of the series, Clark scored a goal as Canada won the series. In addition, she was the youngest player on the team, and one of only three women from Saskatchewan invited to tryout for the team.
In her NCAA debut on October 3, 2014, Clark registered three points (two goals, one assist) in a 4–1 victory against the Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs.
During the month of December 2016, Clark tied for the WCHA lead in both points scored with eight and assists with seven, while leading the conference in plus/minus rating with a +7 rating. She would record an assist in Wisconsin's 8–2 win against their archrivals, the Minnesota Golden Gophers on December 4, 2016.
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. 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.
Clark expected to play professional hockey in the Canadian Women's Hockey League, but they discontinued operations prior to her college graduation. She additionally made the decision to join the Professional Women's Hockey Players Association, and to boycott playing in the National Women's Hockey League or any other professional North American women's hockey league until one that is sustainable is developed.
