Sens TV with Clarke MacArthur

by Chris Lund / Ottawa Senators

Sens TV had the opportunity to sit down with a handful of Senators players before they went their separate ways at the conclusion of the 2013-14 season to reflect on the year that was, look ahead to the future and get a sense of what's ahead for the guys.

Next up in this series is Clarke MacArthur. He joined the Senators as a free agent last July after playing the previous three seasons with the Toronto Maple Leafs and developed instant chemistry with Kyle Turris and fellow Ottawa newcomer Bobby Ryan. In his first season with the Senators, MacArthur recorded a career high in goals with 24 — despite goal scoring dry spells in the months of October and April — and put up his second best single season highs in assists and points with the Sens, finishing with 31 and 55 respectively.

Taking a closer look at the numbers, MacArthur was one of the Sens best possession players as well with 54 per cent of all shot attempts coming from Ottawa while he was on the ice — the second highest mark on the team to Erik Karlsson among players who played at least 30 games for the Senators. Not only that, but 58 per cent of goals scored with MacArthur on the ice were goals for the Sens.

To recap his first season in Ottawa, here's Clarke MacArthur one-on-one with Sens TV.
