Mark Arcobello might end up as a second-line center option for the Oilers this season.
He's expected to compete with Leon Draisaitl and Anton Lander for the spot. Jordan Eberle thinks Arcobello could be a good fit there. "I've played with Arco when he was in the AHL and when he was up here last year," said Eberle. "I think he's showed that he can play here when he was up here. He performed very well. With contract issues and guys stepping in, he kind of got pushed out of the way. Now that there is a spot open, I know for him he’s probably training hard and looking to take over that. It should be interesting." Arcobello got off to a good start last season with 10 assists in his first 10 outings, but he finished the year with 18 points in 41 contests. Aug 20 - 5:05 PM

Mark Arcobello has agreed to a one-year contract extension with the Edmonton Oilers.

The big news is that it's a one-way deal, which is a first for Arcobello. He has four goals and 18 points in 41 games this season.
Apr 1 - 9:41 AM

The Edmonton Oilers have sent center Mark Arcobello to Oklahoma City of the AHL.

Arcobello got off to a great start with 10 assists in his first 10 games but cooled off after becoming popular on the waiver wire and had only four goals and eight points in his final 31 games. He was sent down as Ales Hemsky and Andrew Ference returned to the lineup while Mark Fraser made his Oilers debut.
Feb 2 - 7:18 AM

Mark Arcobello scored a goal in Edmonton's 5-2 loss to St. Louis on Wednesday.

Arcobello has 17 points in 34 games, but he got 10 of those points in his first 10 contests this season. He's playing time has been on a steady downward path to the point where he's averaging just 12:52 minutes per game this month. We can't recommend owning him in standard leagues at this time.
Jan 8 - 9:56 AM

Mark Arcobello (ribs) returned to action on Friday.

Arcobello had been out since December 17, missing seven games with the rib injury, and had one blocked shot Friday in 14:45 minutes of action. Arcobello has three goals and 16 points in 32 games this season. He last garnered a point on December 10.
Jan 4 - 2:24 AM

Mark Arcobello is dealing with an injury to his ribs.

Arcobello didn't play on Saturday as a result. He has three goals and 16 points in 31 contests in 2013-14.

Mark Arcobello had a goal and an assist in Edmonton's 8-2 win over Colorado on Thursday.

That gives Arcobello three points in his last two games. Fantasy owners that remember Arcobello's point-per-game pace at the beginning of the season might be eager to pick him up in the hopes of riding another hot streak. However, keep in mind that Arcobello was getting top-six minutes in October as the Oilers' dealt with injuries. By contrast he logged just 12:46 minutes on Thursday and he's not likely to see his role significantly increase again despite his recent offensive outburst.

Mark Arcobello had an assist in Tuesday's 6-2 loss to Phoenix.

Arcobello took advantage of some of the Oilers' early injuries to record 10 points in his first 10 games. However, with the team getting healthier, Arcobello went from averaging 17:45 minutes in October to 14:09 in November. That coincided with his production plummeting. He has just three points in his last 14 contests.

Mark Arcobello will dress in his first NHL game since Nov. 13 on Thursday night.

He was brought back up from the minors about a week ago, but hasn't cracked the lineup until now. "I'm ready to pick up where I left off," said an eager Arcobello. The rookie forward has two goals and 10 assists in 20 NHL games this campaign. Ryan Jones will also play against Nashville, while Will Acton and Luke Gazdic will sit.

The Edmonton Oilers have recalled center Mark Arcobello from Oklahoma City of the AHL.

Arcobello was sent down on Friday and did not participate in any AHL games. He has two goals and 12 points in 20 games with the Oilers but had only two goals and no assists in his last 10 games after getting off to a great start with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Sam Gagner, the Oilers top two centers, not in the lineup in the early part of the season due to injuries. He is a bottom six player unless Edmonton runs into more injuries at center and should be left on the waiver wire for now.

Mark Arcobello has been sent down to the minors.

Arcobello got off to a great start this season with 10 assists in his first 10 games. However, he got his big break because the Oilers were dealing with injury troubles and as their centers started getting healthy, Arcobello got less ice time. He went from averaging 17:45 minutes in October to just 14:48 minutes in his last six contests. It still wouldn't be surprising to see him get another chance later this season.
Fri, Nov 15, 2013 05:11:00 PM

Luke Gadzic's out with a shoulder injury, so Edmonton Oilers' Mark Arcobello will get to slide back into a possibly fantasy-friendly pivot role.

The quietly productive forward is skating between Ryan Smyth and Nail Yakupov against the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday. Arcobello has two goals and 10 assists in 18 games, although he's only collected points in one of the last eight games.
Sun, Nov 10, 2013 02:10:00 PM

Edmonton Oilers center Mark Arcobello scored his first two goals - including the overtime winner - of the season in a 4-3 OT win against the Florida Panthers.

Arcobello went five games without a point before tonight's output. Before that, he had stunningly generated 10 assists despite being obscure to almost all of the hockey world. He still ranks as something of an unknown quantity.
Wed, Nov 6, 2013 12:45:00 AM

Mark Arcobello is tied for the NHL lead in assists with 10 in 10 games.

Arcobello is in good company as the players he's tied with are Sidney Crosby, Henrik Sedin, and Joe Thornton. Arcobello has taken full advantage of the opportunity presented to him by Sam Gagner's injury and is definitely worth taking a chance on in standard leagues.
Wed, Oct 23, 2013 09:37:00 AM

Mark Arcobello registered two assists in a 3-2 loss Thursday.

Arcobello has eight assists in as many games this season. He's done a superb job filling in for Sam Gagner, who is recovering from a broken jaw.
