One More Test For Clarke MacArthur

from Ken Warren of the Ottawa Citizen,

A major, make-or-break “neuro-psych” exam awaits Ottawa Senators left winger Clarke MacArthur in his concussion recovery.

“I’ve never done this before,” MacArthur told Postmedia before the Senators returned home from their four-game road trip Monday.

“It’s like a full-body (test), where you are doing physical tests, not just a pen and paper (concussion test). I will be active, wearing the workout gear. They will be judging reaction time, testing certain things. That will give me a full-body baseline, instead of just a ‘neuro’ baseline.”

MacArthur, who suffered his fourth concussion in 18 months when hit by Senators prospect Patrick Sieloff in the club’s first intrasquad scrimmage at training camp in September, hasn’t played an NHL game since October, 2015.

But he has made steady improvements in his latest recovery and still has his eyes set on returning to the Senators lineup in January.
