Senators forward MacArthur out with hand injury
Ottawa Senators forward Clarke MacArthur will sit out their game Saturday against the Winnipeg Jets with a hand injury.

Ottawa Senators forward Clarke MacArthur will sit out their game Saturday against the Winnipeg Jets with a hand injury and is doubtful for Monday against the Nashville Predators, coach Paul MacLean said after practice Friday.

"It might be longer, who knows?" MacLean said. "We just want to make sure we had our people look at it and make sure what it would be."

MacArthur left Ottawa's 4-1 road loss Wednesday against the Calgary Flames early in the third period after engaging with defenseman Chris Butler. The encounter, which came 19 seconds into the period with Ottawa trailing 3-0, began after MacArthur knocked Flames leading scorer Jiri Hudler into the boards. Hudler lay on the ice after the hit and is out at least two games with an upper-body injury.

MacArthur ranks third on the Senators with 19 goals and is tied for fourth with 44 points in 62 games.

"That's a big loss," MacLean said. "But it's also, as we've said lots of times in the past, it's a good opportunity too. Somebody else gets to step up and play in that spot."

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
