The Toronto Marlies announced today that the hockey club has signed forward Rich Clune to a one-year AHL contract.
Clune, 33, appeared in 16 games with the Marlies this past season, recording four points (3 goals, 1 assist). In his five seasons with Toronto, he has registered 43 points (18 goals, 25 assists) in 164 regular season games while serving as an alternate captain. The Toronto native has appeared in 20 playoff games for the Marlies, collecting five points (2 goals, 3 assists) and capturing the Calder Cup in 2018.
