Can West alumni Clarke MacArthur is back in the spotlight after nearly two years of concussion recovery. He hit the ice on April 4 against the Detroit Red Wings for the first time since October 2015 and was proud of the team’s 2-0 win. MacArthur went on to score the Senators’ first goal during Saturday’s game against the Boston Bruins, which the team eventually won 4-3 in overtime, sending fans into a frenzy.
An Alberta boy, MacArthur grew up in Lloydminster, Alberta and joined Can West’s first AAA hockey team when he moved to Edmonton as a young teenager. Some of his key accomplishments since playing with Can West include:
- Named the 2004 Memorial Cup All-Star
- Member of Canada’s gold medal-winning squad at the 2005 World Junior Champions
- Previously played with the Buffalo Sabres, Atlanta Thrashers and Toronto Maple Leafs
The Can West family is proud of MacArthur’s dedication, hard work and accomplishments. We’re glad to see him back on the ice, and are excited to see how the rest of his season and career unfolds.
