GM - Joe Clark

thumbnail_Clark_JoePrior to joining the RoadRunners for the 2015-16 season, Clark had spent the past 26 years as an NHL scout, minor league general manager and head coach, NCAA goaltending coach in addition to a decade-long stint as a head coach in Europe.

Clark got his coaching career off the ground as the goalie coach at the University of Maine and helped the Black Bears to their first-ever NCAA tourney appearance in 1987, as well as the school's first Frozen Four in 1988. Clark spent last season as the recruiting  coordinator and goalie coach at the University of Denver, where he helped the Pioneers to the NCAA tournament a No. 5 final national ranking.

The Augusta, Maine, native split 10 years as a head coach between the Danish Elite League and the Norwegian Elite League, and later became the first-ever head coach of the Odessa Jackalopes, then a member of the Western Professional Hockey League in 1997.

After scouting and coaching in the New York Islanders system for several years, Clark returned to Odessa as the team's general manager and maintained his ties with the Islanders.

The Jackalopes, then a member of the Central Hockey League, served as a minor league affiliate of New York and were instrumental in getting several Odessa players opportunities in both the American Hockey League (AHL) and National Hockey League (NHL).

During his eight years in Odessa, Clark helped the team win numerous league awards - including Franchise of the Year in 1998 and 1999, as well as the Central Hockey League's Most Improved franchise in 2009. The club was also recognized as the league's top team in community relations in 2009 and 2010.

Clark, 55, would later help the Jackalopes transition into junior hockey as Odessa became a member of the North American Hockey League (NAHL). He would later move on to Topeka in 2012 to become the RoadRunners Executive Director of Business Operations before accepting his position with Denver in 2014.

Outside of hockey, Clark put his journalism skills to use and has previously served as an editor and staff writer in the sports

department of the Omaha World Herald for four years, as well as the Lewiston Sun and Kennebec Journal in his home state of Maine.

Clark and his wife Stephanie are the proud parents of three children - daughter Sydnie, son Tanner, and daughter Ella.
