Pierre Dorion said in an interview Tuesday that it was unlikely Clarke MacArthur would return to play in the NHL and that MacArthur has already moved to Florida. Does this mark the end of his career? MacArthur endured at least four concussions during an 18-month span in 2015 and 2016. He made a remarkable return last season, playing in the final 4 regular-season games and suited up for 19 playoff games where he posted 3 goals and 6 assists for 9 points. He scored the series-winning goal in overtime VS Boston in Game 6 and his return was the feel-good story of the year for the Senators alongside Nicole Anderson becoming cancer-free... but was it all too much for him? There was always a glimmer of hope MacArthur could return to the ice at some point, but that flame is all but extinguished now.
February 16, 2015 - MacArthur collides with previous Senators goaltender Robin Lehner, both are diagnosed with concussions.
October 20, 2015 - MacArthur is revealed to have suffered a concussion VS Columbus on October 14.
September 25, 2016 - Newly-acquired defenceman Patrick Sieloff hits MacArthur into the boards during training camp, suffers another concussion.
January 20, 2016 - MacArthur is sidelined for the remainder of the 16-17 season due to post-concussion syndrome.
September 14, 2017 - MacArthur fails physical and would not attend training camp
Is this the end for MacArthur? Or will he make another return?
