Blake Clarke (born January 24, 1996) is an American ice hockey player. He is currently playing in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) with the Saginaw Spirit. Clarke is rated as a top prospect who, at one point early in his OHL career, was viewed as a possible first round selection in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.
Clarke played junior hockey with the Fargo Force of the United States Hockey League during the 2011–12 season. Clarke was then drafted by the Brampton Battalion in the 1st round (15th overall) of the 2012 OHL Priority Selection, and he joined the Battalion for the 2012–13 season, staying with the team until he was traded to the Saginaw Spirit mid-way through the 2013–14 season. Clarke was rewarded for his outstanding play when he was invited to take part in both the 2013 CCM/USA Hockey All-American Prospects Game and the CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game.
As a 15-year-old, Clarke was selected to play with Team USA at the 2012 Winter Youth Olympics.
