Mark Arcobello Assigned To Oklahoma City, Hopkins To Draw In Against Detroit

New, comment

Mark Arcobello's appearance in Edmonton was brief.

The Edmonton Oilers official Twitter feed broke the news today:

Arcobello heads back to Oklahoma City after a mostly non-descript game, though expectations seemed to skew far too high for a 25-year-old making his NHL debut because of injuries to three centers within days of each other. Arcobello centered Taylor Hall and Jordan Eberle to begin the game, but bounced around a bit throughout the game. He played 15:00 at even strength and 3:10 on the power play.

Arcobello went 3-10 in the faceoff circle and wasn't able to put any shots on net, though he was credited with two blocked shots. Arcobello was a -7 on the shot clock for the evening, with most of the damage done by Dallas' second and third lines.

Arcobello's assignment means Ryan Nugent-Hopkins is back to good health and will play against Detroit. The Oilers will need to find another centre if Eric Belanger is not able to go.
