Undrafted – Signed by Edmonton Oilers 2013

 

 

 

Observations:

 

June 2013 – He is an offensive wizard at lower levels who flirts with point-per-game type numbers most seasons in his career thus far and loves to shoot the puck despite being known as a playmaker. Even with his vertically challenged frame, he is always noticeable in games. He has good potential, especially playing amongst star players, but questions will arise if he has the flat out talent to play in the NHL, amongst the top tier players that he gives away half a foot too, at full speed. Edmonton has recently resigned him to a single season pact, but he likely starts again in the AHL as the Oilers already have 10 players locked up with Sam Gagner and Magnus Paajarvi as RFAs. Recent rumors have Shawn Horcoff and Alas Hemsky, while looking to acquire more picks and a solid bottom six forward or a top pairing defenseman, should both vets be moved, there may be opportunity for Arcobello. He reminds me of a lower hyped T.J. Hensick, unfortunately his size makes the odds against his securing an NHL role, but may surprise as a depth type player and help development of other talent at the AHL level.

 

 

Fantasy Outlook: C-

He has shown ability to post solid numbers, and could duplicate them in a top six role amongst the current talent in Edmonton, but he is unlikely to be a top two center and may not have the complete game for a secondary role as a bottom six player.
