Hunter Clark will remain a Saint at least until the end of 2025 after putting pen to paper on a two-year extension.

Whilst it has been a turbulent few years with injury having an impact on his availability, 2023 saw much more consistency from Clark, who featured in 19 games to help St Kilda make the return to finals footy.

Clark was selected at Pick 7 in the 2017 National Draft, debuting in 2018 and earning a Rising Star nomination the same year. After his breakout year in 2020, he was selected for the Players' Association's 22under22 side.

Acting General Manager of Football David Misson was delighted for Clark to keep calling St Kilda home, releasing a statement via St Kilda Media that his resilience and passion for the club have been a benefit to the Saints despite the injuries in previous years plaguing him.

"We're incredibly pleased to have Hunter recommit to the club," he said.

"Hunter has been a resilient member of our playing group this year, putting his injury troubles behind him to fulfil important duties for the side on game-day.

"We saw Hunter's confidence grow as the year progressed, no small part thanks to his own desire to improve and the constant support of assistant coach, Lenny Hayes.

"We're looking forward to seeing Hunter continue to develop as an influential player and unlock his full potential over the coming seasons."

This season saw Clark average 18.2 disposals, 3.6 tackles, 2.7 clearances and a career-best of four goals. He has played in 87 games for the Saints for a return of 12 total goals in his career.
