MacArthur scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 5-1 win over Arizona. The goal stood up as the game winner.

Four of his 12 goals have been winners, so he's clutch when he does find twine. He's behind his pace of last season and may only finish in the mid-40s. But right now, his six points, including three goals, in seven games makes him a worthy activation ... at least in the short term.

MacArthur extended his point streak to four games with an assist in Sunday's loss to the Lightning.

MacArthur has delivered two goals and two assists during that time, giving him 11 and 10 for the season, respectively. By virtue of being a top-line forward on Ottawa's roughly league-average offensive attack, MacArthur warrants attention, but he's unlikely to ascend to upper-tier status among fantasy wingers over the remainder of the season.

MacArthur tallied an unassisted goal in Saturday's overtime loss to the Red Wings.

The goal was the 10th of the season for MacArthur, but just his first since Dec. 2. In the nine games in between, he managed just one assist on 18 shot attempts. He deserves something of a mulligan for suffering from the flu during the middle of the stretch, but the returns have still been rather disappointing.

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. Illness aside, MacArthur has been slumping of late, producing only one point in his last six games.

MacArthur has recorded a point in three consecutive games, bringing his total to 13 over 17 games on the season. He hasn't enjoyed a run of truly eye-popping production during any stretch of the season thus far, but his consistency might be a more appreciated quality by his fantasy owners.
