Clarke leaves Cornwall Nationals; MJ Graham back

CORNWALL – Cornwall Nationals forward Brent Clarke is leaving the team to join the Pensacola Ice Flyers of the Southern Professional Hockey League (SPHL).

The city FHL team made the announcement Thursday as it also announced that forward MJ Graham, who left the team for the SPHL two weeks ago, is returning to Cornwall this weekend.

Team spokesman Rodney Wilson said Graham will be a welcome addition as forwards Joel Trottier and Ian Boots are out with lower body injuries.

As well, defenceman Peter Mott is out for the season with a broken fibula and ankle.

The Cornwall Nationals travel to Danbury, Conn. tonight for a rare Thursday night tilt against the Titans.
