Despite suffering another concussion, Clarke MacArthur isn't interested in retiring just yet.

The Sens forward has had four concussions over the last 18 months. To add insult to injury, the latest one was the result of a hit he took from teammate Patrick Sieloff during a practice. "I just still feel I’ve got logs burning on the fire," MacArthur said. "I’m not ready to do something else. I’m going to set up a landscaping company at some point but not yet ... I’m going to keep going."

Clarke MacArthur (concussion) is likely to join his teammates Sunday for the start of a three-game road trip.

It would be good for him mentally, but we still haven't 100 percent decided that." He is doing better but it remains uncertain when MacArthur will be ready to return to action.

Clarke MacArthur (concussion) will visit a concussion specialist this week.

The future of his NHL career could be determined by doctors after he suffered his fourth concussion in 18 months. "The encouraging part for Clarke, compared to last year, is he's at the rink, he's got color, he looks good and he wants to come back," said GM Pierre Dorion. "But we're going to leave the decision's on Clarke's health in the hands of doctors. We'll have a better idea within the next week what's going to happen."
Oct 12 - 11:38 AM

The Ottawa Senators won't rush Clarke MacArthur back from his concussion.

MacArthur has had a long history with concussions, so the Sens don't want to force him back onto the ice or even into the weight room. "He was feeling good for the last three days," said coach Guy Boucher. "We’re not pushing the gym and all that right now. He’s done some (stationary) bike, but that’s pretty much the extent of it." Expect the team to be extremely cautious with MacArthur.

Clarke MacArthur (concussion) intends to be back as soon as he can.

He posted a picture of himself training on his Instagram account Thursday. MacArthur said: "We have been encouraged by how my body has reacted in the days since the injury and the team has been great giving me all the time I need to rest and recover. I will continue to consult with doctors and my entire support group, but I felt it was important to let everyone know that my intentions are to work towards returning to the ice soon." MacArthur hopes to start riding the bike Friday. He suffered his fourth concussion in 18 months Sunday, so there will be no rush to get him back in before he is ready.

Sep 27 - 6:45 PM

Clarke MacArthur's (concussion) condition is "as good as we can hope right now," per Senators coach Guy Boucher.

MacArthur is experiencing what Boucher termed as "normal symptoms." MacArthur was concussed on Sunday during an intrasquad game. It's not clear how long he'll be out for, but that's par for the course when it comes to this type of injury. Given that he missed almost the entire 2015-16 campaign due to a concussion, the fact that it happened again is obviously very discouraging.

Per the Ottawa Senators, Clarke MacArthur has again been diagnosed with a concussion.

MacArthur missed all but four games due to a concussion in 2015-16, so this is no doubt terrible news for him and the team. Patrick Sieloff nailed MacArthur with a hit during a scrimmage, which instigated a fight between him and Bobby Ryan in response. Clearly this does not bode well for MacArthur, but nothing outside of the diagnosis has been give yet. More to come.

Clarke MacArthur had to be helped off the ice from Sunday's Senators scrimmage after being hit by Patrick Sieloff.

MacArthur is trying to make his way back from a lost season due to a concussion, he played just four games in 2015-16. While we don't have any word on the fallout of the hit, the picture in the link below, combined with his history, does not seem to bode well.
