On the Ottawa Senators …

TSN: Senators GM Pierre Dorion said that after Clarke MacArthur failed his physical at training camp, he since moved to Florida. Dorion noted that if MacArthur wanted to give it another shot next year, they would consider it, but isn’t optimistic.

“Oh, I doubt that one,” Dorion said when asked if MacArthur could join the team. “He’s moved to Florida, if I’m not mistaken. And after failing that medical… You know what, if he wants to come back next year and try, we’d definitely look at it.

“Clarke was a big part of our playoff success, but I think health  family comes before hockey any day… I couldn’t be responsible for allowing him to play after doctors said that he failed his medical.”

“I’ve unfortunately had these types of situations before,” MacDonald said. “Typically, no, it doesn’t take too long. Three weeks of not skating, you’d be surprised how quickly you can get it back. It doesn’t take too much. There’s a process you try to follow and make sure you keep an eye on things and there’s no setbacks.”
