Ottawa GM Pierre Dorion will be glad to have Clarke MacArthur back in the lineup this coming season.
"He's the piece we missed the most last year," Dorion said. "We missed his on-ice presence, we missed his off-ice presence. Having a healthy Clarke MacArthur from Day 1 — who could have played last year he had clearance from the doctors —will be a big thing for us." He missed most of the 2015-16 campaign because of post-concussion syndrome, but he is healthy going into camp. Dorion believes MacArthur's presence in the lineup will help solidify the top-six forward group. Aug 14 - 3:53 PM

Clarke MacArthur is anxious for the start of training camp in the fall following a disappointing 2015-16 season.

He played in just four games and didn't appear in a game again after he suffered a concussion on Oct. 14 against Columbus. "I feel great. The last two or three weeks I've felt 110 percent and it's as good as my body has ever felt at the end of a season," he said. "Any little injuries I had are gone. It's just a matter of coming back. Hopefully, the rest does what it needs to do and I can come back and take that hit and not have to worry about it next year. I'm going to play like I'm not going to worry about it so I hope my brain follows along." MacArthur would have preferred to remove that uncertainty by getting into a game at the end of the regular season, but doctors didn't think it would be the best thing for his recovery.

Confirming an earlier report, Ottawa has shut down Clarke MacArthur for the rest of the 2015-16 season.

He appeared in just four games this year because of concussion problems. MacArthur has passed the baseline test and is medically cleared to play, but the decision to keep him out was made in combination with team management and team doctors. The good news is that he should be ready for the start of the 2016-17 campaign.

It's expected that Ottawa will announce Monday that Clarke MacArthur will not play again this season.

MacArthur opened up about his harrowing season dealing with concussions and their symptoms dating back to a preseason game against Montreal, the week before the regular season began. "The headaches," MacArthur told reporter Ken Warren, "I can't even describe the feelings. It was awful." Later on in January after he announced on Twitter that he was skating again, MacArthur's enthusiasm evaporated beneath the shroud of vertigo. "I did a couple of laps, it felt all right, but that’s when we found out I had vertigo," he said. "It was like a whole new start again. I had no balance. When I went backwards, it was like I was floating around. I didn’t have a clue where I was, so I battled with that for (more than) a month." You can read the rest in vivid detail in the link below. It's an eye-opening and revealing read to say the least.
