MacArthur is fully healthy after suffering through a concussion for most of the season, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports. MacArthur is skating twice a week at home, and plans to ramp up his activity in August in order to be sharp heading into training camp. "I feel better on the ice and I feel as good as I've felt, so we'll see what happens," the winger said. The 31-year-old also expressed his excitement for new coach Guy Boucher, especially his expertise in the power play. MacArthur averaged 3:13 of ice time during the man advantage in the 2014-15 season.
MacArthur (concussion) has been ruled out for the remainder of the 2015-16 campaign. MacArthur recently passed his baseline test, but must not have been progressing well enough to rejoin the club over the next couple weeks. The winger will now turn his focuses to beginning preparation for the 2016-17 season after a wasted 2015-16 campaign in which he played just four games. Assuming the issue isn't career-threatening, he should be good to go for the start of training camp.
MacArthur (concussion) passed a baseline test Friday, but he'll meet with general manager Bryan Murray on Saturday to gauge whether to play again this season, Ken Warren of the Ottawa Citizen reports. It's great news that MacArthur is symptom-free after only appearing in four games this season, but with Ottawa only playing for pride at this point, it's almost unnecessary for Murray to risk the health of his 30-year-old winger. The 2003 third-round pick did mention he'd like to play the last four contests of the year, and we'll know by the weekend's end if that will be the case.
MacArthur (concussion) skated on the first line in Thursday's practice, Dean Brown of TSN 1200 reports. Zack Smith is dealing with an undisclosed ailment, which stuck MacArthur on the first line even though he hasn't been cleared for game action. The winger still hopes to know his status by the weekend's end, but the 30-year-old has to pass a baseline test before coach Dave Cameron can place him back in the lineup.
MacArthur (concussion) is hoping to be able to play in the last four games of the season, Ken Warren of the Ottawa Citizen reports. It was also reported by Dean Brown of TSN 1200 that MacArthur may know his status by the weekend. The winger has yet to pass a baseline test to clear him of concussion symptoms, but it's obvious he still wants to skate this season. Even if the 30-year-old receives the green light, he most likely won't be a factor for fantasy purposes and can remain on waivers for the duration of the season.
