Rockford Icehog Adam Clendening is getting closer to breaking into the NHL. Blackhawks Director of Hockey Administration/General Manager of Minor League Operations Mark Bernard says Clendening is 'right on the cusp'. Bernard says Clendening makes plays that ninety nine percent of AHL defensemen can't make. With some work on his defensive game, the twenty-one year old is headed in the right direction. Clendening finished second among AHL defenseman with 47 assists and 59 points last season.
