Jason Arnott may not become a member of the New York Rangers after all.

Katie Strang of ESPNNewYork.com reported Sunday night that Arnott, who signed a one-year contract with the Blueshirts on Saturday, was not cleared by team doctors this weekend, thus nullifying the deal.

The 38-year-old center has 417 goals and 521 assists in 1,244 NHL games with Edmonton, New Jersey, Dallas, Nashville, Washington and St. Louis. He was originally drafted by the Oilers in the first round (No. 7) of the 1993 NHL Entry Draft.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
