Clarke MacArthur will not suit up for the Ottawa Senators this season after suffering a concussion in September, GM Pierre Dorion announced on Friday.
“Clarke is devastated by this news,” Dorion said. “He felt he didn’t have any symptoms but I think in the long-term of this process we always said that the doctors would decide if Clarke was going to play.”
“They all feel that Clarke should not play this year.”
The 31-year-old MacArthur has not played an NHL game since Oct. 14, 2015 when he suffered a concussion in a game against the Columbus Blue Jackets. During a training camp scrimmage in September, MacArthur took a hit from Patrick Sieloff, which caused him to suffer a fourth concussion in 18 months.
