Senators forward Clarke MacArthur fails physical

Senators forward Clarke MacArthur fails physical”

Training camps around the National Hockey League are starting this week and one of the storylines coming out of the Senators training camp is the health of forward Clarke MacArthur. During the playoffs he contributed three goals and nine points while playing all 19 games for the Ottawa Senators.

MacArthur didn't speak publicly Thursday. He was then set to return for 2016-2017 but was concussed at training camp by a teammate.

He seriously contemplated retirement before finally receiving the go-ahead to return in the final week of the regular season.

MacArthur is a three-time 20-goal scorer in his 11-year National Hockey League career. This includes passing a medical exam by the team doctor. MacArthur will not be cleared to practice or play this season until he passes his physical and there's a chance he may not be able to play at all this season.

In 11 seasons with Buffalo, Winnipeg, Toronto and Ottawa, MacArthur recorded 133 goals and 171 assists in 552 regular-season games.

"I've always felt confident this was a playoff team", he said. Ryan Dzingel, Alex Burrows and/or Zack Smith will be among those asked to pick up the slack.

MacArthur has three years and $14.25 million United States remaining on his contract.

Insurance would cover 80% of the salary, meaning the Senators would have the salary room to replace him with another player.

MacArthur, who returned to the lineup in April after an 18-month absence while dealing with post-concussion symptoms, was examined on the opening day of Ottawa's camp.

"I think we've got to give it a bit of time", Dorion said. "If it was up to me, I would like to cancel all six (pre-season) games and just start (the regular season) on October 5".
