MacArthur Suspended

NEW YORK (OCTOBER 1, 2011) – Toronto Maple Leafs forward Clarke MacArthur has been suspended for the remainder of the preseason and two regular-season games, without pay, for an illegal hit to the head of Detroit Red Wings forward Justin Abdelkader during a preseason game on September 30, National Hockey League Senior Vice President of Player Safety Brendan Shanahan announced today.

Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, and based on his average annual salary, MacArthur will forfeit $35,135.14. The money goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.

The incident occurred at the end of the third period and no penalty was assessed on the play.

MacArthur will miss a preseason game tonight vs. Detroit and regular season games Oct. 6 vs. Montreal and Oct. 8 vs. Ottawa. He is eligible to return Oct. 15 vs. Calgary.

A full explanation of Shanahan’s decision, complete with video, will be available on NHL.com later today.

Watch the hit if you missed it last night.

JJ’s Three Cheers: 10/16/10

Today’s three cheers (a little late because, you know, a dad’s gotta take his two-year-old to Sesame Street Live every now and again) for the NHL’s top performers from a night ago:

***Cheers to Toronto’s Phil Kessel, whose overtime tally toppled the Rangers in New York, improving the Leafs’ stellar start to a perfect 4-0-0. The OT winner was Kessel’s second of the game and fourth of the season and the former Bruin also added an assist earlier in the contest. Clarke MacArthur also scored for Toronto - the impressive fifth goal of the year for the Buffalo/Atlanta castoff

Happy In Toronto

from Damien Cox of the Toronto Star,

He didn’t have a job, you see, after the Atlanta Thrashers had walked away from a $2.4 million arbitration award, and as he contemplated the NHL market in August, it seemed as though all the money had been spent.

“Finally, one team called,” recalled MacArthur. “And of course right away four or five others did.”

In the end, it was the Maple Leafs who appealed to MacArthur most with their lowball $1.1 million offer, and after scoring his third and fourth goals in three games Wednesday night in a 4-3 triumph over Pittsburgh, the 25-year-old left winger might have the Thrashers second-guessing themselves.

“I don’t really care what they’re thinking down (in Atlanta),” he said. “I’m happy here.”

This early-season Leaf honeymoon, meanwhile, has been brief but hugely satisfying as the club moved to 3-0-0 with the victory over the Pens. Ron Wilson’s surprising crew now has a chance Friday night in Manhattan to start unbeaten and untied in four starts for the first time since the 1993-94 season when the club began with 10 consecutive victories.

Post-Kovalchuk Thrashers Deep on ‘D’, Look to New Faces and Young Guns for Offense

For the Atlanta Thrashers, a team with just one playoff appearance in ten National Hockey League seasons (and not a single post-season victory to their credit), the time for a fresh start was clearly at hand.

By first turning a negative into a positive in moving on from superstar sniper Ilya Kovalchuk late last season and then raiding the cabinet of the cap-crunched Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks, Atlanta begins their new era, under both a new general manager and head coach in Rick Dudley and Craig Ramsay, with a wealth of promising youth and several veterans with recent championship experience.

They may no longer boast an individual showstopper but that formula wasn’t producing a consistent winner in Blueland anyway (and that alone rarely does as much anywhere). The post-Kovalchuk Thrashers appear to be headed for greener pastures, though there will be that little issue of replacing his 45+ goals, of course.
