GLENDALE, ARIZONA --- Arizona Coyotes General Manager Don Maloney announced today the Coyotes have claimed forward Mark Arcobello off waivers from the Pittsburgh Penguins.
"Mark Arcobello is a quick, skilled player who will give us more depth at the center position," said Maloney. "With center Marty Hanzal’s extended injury, Mark is a welcomed addition to our Club.”
The 5-foot-8, 172-pound Arcobello has recorded 8-7-15 and 14 penalty minutes (PIM) in 50 games this season with the Edmonton Oilers, Nashville Predators and Penguins. In 2013-14, the Milford, Connecticut native registered 4-14-18 with eight PIM in 41 games with the Oilers.
The 26-year-old Arcobello has collected 12-21-33 and 22 PIM in 92 career NHL games.
