The Senators signed Clarke MacArthur to a five-year extension worth $23.25 million.
MacArthur recorded 24 goals and 31 assists with a plus-12 rating in 79 games with the Senators last season. The 29-year-old has scored 20 goals in each on the last three 82-game seasons so expect fourth straight in 2014-15. On a rundown Senators offence, Mac will once again play a considerable amount of minutes this season.
MacArthur (hand) is expected to return on Saturday.
MacArthur will not play Monday, but the Senators are off all week after tonight, so he should be ready to go vs. the Habs on Saturday. Tonight, Mike Hoffman will skate in his spot on the second line once again.
MacArthur does not need surgery on his hand, could play next Saturday.
MacArthur was injured on Wednesday and was sent back to Ottawa to see a specialist. The hand specialist determined that Mac does not need surgery and could only miss one week. Mike Hoffman gets a promotion to the second line with MacArthur out.
No Clarke MacArthur at Leafs morning skate. Appears he'll be out again tonight with upper-body injury.
MacArthur will miss his second straight game. He had 43 points in 73 games last season and has 17 points in 30 games this year. He has produced fairly well and on a consistent basis over these last two years, making him a decent fantasy option in deeper leagues.
There's a chance Clarke MacArthur returns tonight from a finger injury.
MacArthur has been unavailable for the Maple Leafs last 3 games since hurting his pinky finger January 26 against the Rangers. MacArthur isn't a great fantasy option except for in deep leagues. Monitor his status prior to game-time.
