MacArthur makes a public statement after suffering post-concussion syndrome for two years.
When it was announced that Ottawa Senators forward Clarke MacArthur had left game 2 of his team’s second round playoff series against the New York Rangers with an injury, Sens fans feared the worst. When the dreaded phrase, “upper-body injury” was uttered, however, they were sent into an absolute panic.
MacArthur’s concussion issues are no secret. The 32 year-old native of Lloyminster, SK missed nearly two calendar years of hockey while he dealt with post-concussion symptoms. His return to the Sens lineup last month has given the team an incredible boost and his loss would be major for the team.
“I feel good. I got an adjustment and it changed everything,” MacArthur said after leaving the ice at MSG. “In the first game, I got hit and kind of fell on my left side. It’s kind of like having a pinched nerve. I got hit in the second game and it just kind of re-aggravated it.”
“I got it worked on and it’s literally not an issue at all.”
Bottom lines are, MacArthur says he’s good to go in Game 3 against Rangers.
