Arcobello signed a two-year contract with NLA squad SC Bern on Tuesday. Arcobello hit the ice in just 20 games with Toronto this season, despite the number of fellow Marlies that received significantly more action in the majors this season. The 27-year-old has earned the journeyman title after spending time with five different organizations over the last two seasons. If the winger can improve his resume in Switzerland, there remains a chance he could return to the NHL in the future.
Arcobello has been loaned to the Toronto Marlies of the AHL, the Toronto Sun reports. Joining Arcobello on the way to the AHL for the time being are Brendan Leipsic and Josh Leivo, while William Nylander, Kasperi Kapanen, Nikita Soshnikov, Zach Hyman, and Ben Smith have all been summoned by the big club as the team shuffles the deck up front. In 20 games for the Leafs this season, Arcobello has notched three goals and four points.
Arcobello scored his first two goals of the season in Saturday's win over the Canucks. The goals came 17 seconds apart. He was pointless in 13 games before Saturday. Arcobello works hard, but isn't a guy who's going to get ice time when guys come off the IR. Admire his effort Saturday, but don't grab him off the wire.
Arcobello was recalled by the Maple Leafs on Monday. Arcobello will get a chance to rejoin the roster due to a plethora of injuries among the Maple Leafs forwards. He didn't notch any points in 11 games with the club earlier in the season, but was slotted in as the center on the third line during Monday's practice, and will likely do the same in Tuesday's contest against the Flames.
Arcobello was reassigned to AHL Toronto on Monday, James Mirtle of The Globe and Mail reports. Arcobello hasn't recorded a point with the Maple Leafs despite drawing into the lineup for 11 games this season, but he did record 15 shots on goal while averaging 10:17 of ice time. The winger will now return to the AHL affiliate, and await another opportunity to rejoin the parent club should another forward suffer an injury.
