Ottawa Senators forward Clarke MacArthur will take the ice with the team Tuesday night for the first time this season, team general manager Pierre Dorion announced.
MacArthur has not played a game since October 2015 after receiving three concussions from three different games. He suffered a fourth concussion during a preseason scrimmage in September 2016.
Dorion said MacArthur had been cleared to play Tuesday night by several doctors.
