Senators GM Pierre Dorion told TSN Radio 1200 on Tuesday that he doesn't expect Clarke MacArthur to play this season.
MacArthur failed his medical at the start of training camp and he hasn't been talked about since. "He's moved to Florida, if I'm not mistaken," said Dorion. "And after failing that medical... You know what, if he wants to come back next year and try, we'd definitely look at it. Clarke was a big part of our playoff success, but I think health [and] family comes before hockey any day... I couldn't be responsible for allowing him to play after doctors said that he failed his medical." MacArthur was ruled out for 2016-17 because of concussion issues, but he managed to make a surprise return in April. That may not happen again this time, though. Tue, Nov 14, 2017 06:17:00 PM

Clarke MacArthur failed his medical Thursday, so he isn't cleared to participate in training camp.

"Right now, we don't know much, but he won't be part of camp," said Senators GM Pierre Dorion. "He was disappointed, but at the same time, he looked in great shape (skating). He trained all summer." The Senators will wait for an update on his status, but for now his future is cloudy. MacArthur has sat out the majority of the past two seasons with concussion problems.

Clarke MacArthur revealed he is unsure if he will return to the NHL next season.

MacArthur said he needs to speak to doctors and take some time before making a decision. However, naturally he wants to continue his NHL career with three-years remaining on his deal. He also added that he was bothered by a sore neck but believes he should be "fine". The Senators will be hoping he returns as he brings some needed offensive production to their lineup.

Clarke MacArthur found the back of the net in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Final.

MacArthur put an end to Matt Murray's shutout late in the second-period to cut Pittsburgh's lead to 3-1 at the time. Ottawa would add another goal, but that's as close as they'd come to tying the game. MacArthur finished the game with a plus-1 rating, three shots on goal and three hits in 19:11 of ice time. MacArthur has now picked up two points in his last two contests. He has three goals and five assists in 16 games this postseason. The best-of-seven series is now tied up at two. Game 5 will be played in Pittsburgh on Sunday.

Clarke MacArthur (upper body) expects to play in Game 3 Tuesday against the Rangers.

He was back on the ice Monday morning at practice after he pinched a nerve in his neck. "I feel good. I got an adjustment and it changed everything," MacArthur said. "In the first game, I got hit and kind of fell on my left side. It's kind of like having a pinched nerve. I got hit in the second game and it just kind of re-aggravated it. I got it worked on and it's literally not an issue at all."

Clarke MacArthur couldn't complete Game 2 on Saturday due to an upper-body injury.

MacArthur apparently sustained the ailment during Game 1 and then aggravated it in Game 2. Given MacArthur's history with concussions, it's natural to worry about that when the words "upper-body injury" get associated with him, but Senators coach Guy Boucher clarified that MacArthur isn't dealing with a head injury. He's considered day-to-day.

Clarke MacArthur left the bench to go to the dressing room and hasn't returned.

MacArthur took a hit from Ryan McDonagh, played another couple of shifts and then left for the room. MacArthur missed the final 14:23 of the second period and there is no news on whether he is out for the remainder of the game yet. Any injury to McArthur is newsworthy considering he missed nearly two years due to a concussion. We will provide an update when one is made available.

For Clarke MacArthur, scoring the series-winning overtime winner has to be particularly sweet.

It's every player's dream, but MacArthur has to have a particular appreciation for just how special it is after missing almost all of the last two seasons with post-concussion syndrome. MacArthur returned on April 4 and went on to participate in every game of the first round. "It’s just awesome to be back playing and to end the game like that," said MacArthur. "You miss most of the last two years, and you keep working on it, and it’s just great to get that opportunity and be able to put away like that."
