MacArthur, Buffalo’s third round pick in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft (74th overall), leads the American Hockey League with 18 points (8+10) in 15 games this season.

MacArthur will skate on a line with Jason Pominville and Jochen Hecht against Boston on Wednesday night, according to Sabres head coach Lindy Ruff.

"Any time you bring up a player like Clarke - he's been going really well down [in Rochester] - we're hoping to get a little jump start from him," said Ruff. 

This is the third time the 22-year-old center will wear a Sabres uniform, recalled in 2006-07 for two stints, scoring a total three goals and four assists in 19 games. He made his NHL debut Dec. 19, 2006 against the Montreal Canadiens.

"It always helps [confidence]," said MacArthur regarding success in the AHL.  "I'm just going to go out, do my job, and hopefully, we get a few [goals] tonight."

MacArthur led the Amerks in scoring last season with 63 points (21+42) in 51 games. He was also selected to the Memorial Cup Tournament All-Star Team in 2004, as well as the WHL East First All-Star Team in 2005.
