Maple Leafs add Clarke MacArthur
Clarke MacArthur, who became a free agent earlier this summer after the Atlanta Thrashers walked away from his arbitration decision, signed a one-year contract Saturday with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The 25-year-old forward split last season between the Thrashers and Buffalo Sabres, registering a career-high 35 points (16 goals, 19 assists). He was dealt to Atlanta on March 3 in exchange for third- and fourth-round picks in the 2010 Entry Draft.

MacArthur, a third-round pick by Buffalo in the 2003 Entry Draft, has played in 208 career regular-season NHL games, totaling 44 goals and 88 points. He scored a career-high 17 goals for the Sabres during the 2008-09 season.
Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.

— Bryan Trottier on making his return to coaching as an assistant with the Sabres
