MacArthur (illness) is doubtful to play Thursday against the Kings, Steve Lloyd of TSN 1200 reports.

Coach Dave Cameron officially labeled MacArthur as a game-time decision, but because the winger missed the team's morning skate with the flu, he'll likely sit out barring a swift recovery in the afternoon. It would mark the first game MacArthur has missed this season, with Zach Smith expected to take his spot in the lineup.

MacArthur left Wednesday's practice early due to an illness, TSN's Steve Lloyd reports.

MacArthur made it about halfway through practice before retreating to the the locker room. Interim coach Dave Cameron said the forward should be fine to play Thursday against the Kings, but his availability won't be confirmed until he takes part in the team's gameday skate.

MacArthur was the lone goal scorer in Monday's 1-0 victory over the Panthers in Sunrise.

MacArthur's first goal of the season was a second-period power-play marker that eventually held up as the game winner. It'll likely be a tall task for the ninth-year NHLer to surpass his career high in goals from last year (24), but with Jason Spezza gone and MacArthur locked into a top-line role with Bobby Ryan and Kyle Turris, there's no reason why he can't at least come close (health permitting). If, by chance, MacArthur is available on your wire, see if you can make space for him: he's looked good beside Ryan and Turris thus far and adds a bit of snarl in the PIM department also (78 last year).

MacArthur inked a five-year, $23.25 million extension with the Senators on Tuesday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

The 29-year-old scored a career-best 24 goals, 78 PIM and a plus-12 rating in his first season in Ottawa, and will be counted on to fill a top-line role long-term on the left wing.
