Magical Season Sends Clemons Back to Minnesota

RICHFIELD, Minn. – After a year in the state of Iowa, it’s back to Minnesota for North Iowa Bulls forward Connor Clemons, the Bulls’ latest call-up to the North American Hockey League. Clemons signed a tender with the Minnesota Magicians on Tuesday, and will get his shot at the Tier II level after one very successful season in “The Barn.”

Clemons earned a brief NAHL call-up this past season, playing a game with the Aberdeen Wings in early November. He did his share of damage in a Bulls uniform during the 2016-17 campaign, placing second on the team with 65 points with a team-best 33 goals.

The Prior Lake, Minnesota native could always be counted upon in the big moments, notching 10 power-play goals and seven game-winners this past year. His 11 points this past postseason, including four goals at the Silver Cup national championship tournament, also topped the leaderboard.

Clemons certainly wasn’t forgotten during the week after the Silver Cup tourney, landing the Central Division’s Rookie of the Year award. His NAHL tender is the 22nd in North Iowa’s six-year history, and he was one of six Bulls players to earn a call to the NAHL during the past season. The North Iowa Bulls wish all success to Connor Clemons in the North American Hockey League during the upcoming season.
