|Assets:||Used his size well, especially in the offensive zone, and liked to create space for his linemates. Had a terrific shot and was defensively responsible. Could log important minutes.|
|Flaws:||Didn't live up to offensive expectations, especially after a great rookie year at age 19, and was prone to inconsistency. Lacked ideal playmaking skills from the center position.|
|Career Potential:||Solid, big-bodied scoring center.|

Arnott hangs up his skates after 18 seasons | 11/05/2013 2:26 PM
NewsJason Arnott has officially announced his retirement.
ImpactArnott scored 417 goals and 938 points in 1,244 career games with the Edmonton Oilers, New Jersey Devils, Dallas Stars, Nashville Predators, Washington Capitals, and St. Louis Blues. Although he was never an elite forward, he had a great career and played a big role in the New Jersey Devils winning the Stanley Cup in 2000. Through his prime, he was remarkably consistent, netting at least 20 goals for 10 straight campaigns. He's tied for 79th place on the NHL's all-time games played list and is 90th in points.
Blues opt against signing Jason Arnott | 03/10/2013 5:44 PM
NewsThe St. Louis Blues decided not to sign Jason Arnott after all.
ImpactThe big center has flirted with the Blues and the New York Rangers lately, but injuries and age apparently have been too much for those teams to give him a shot.
Blues likely to make call on Arnott by Sunday | 03/06/2013 11:08 AM
NewsJason Arnott continues to skate with the St. Louis Blues, who are expected to make a decision on whether to sign the veteran center by Sunday.
St. Louis Post-Dispatch
ImpactArnott's deal with the Rangers earlier in the season fell apart when he was unable to pass a physical. Arnott had offseason knee surgery and said Tuesday that he wants to see how the knee responds to on-ice work. "If everything goes well and my body feels good, hopefully we can both say yes and move forward and contribute to win," Arnott said. Sounds like we should know more by the end of the week.
Blues looking at Jason Arnott again | 03/04/2013 12:42 PM
NewsThe St. Louis Blues are looking once again at unrestricted free agent Jason Arnott.
St. Louis Post-Dispatch
ImpactArnott inked a deal with the Rangers over a month ago but the center was unable to pass his physical voiding the deal. He played through shoulder and knee issues with St. Louis and with the Blues currently struggling, he is on their radar. "I talked to Jason's representative and he said he still has that burning desire to play," GM Doug Armstrong said. "It made me start to think, if you've accomplished everything he has, and you're into March and you still want to play, you have the passion for the game. He's going to join us this week on the road trip, make sure his body is with his mind and that he is ready to play. He did have some offseason surgery. We have information from the doctors that he is ready to go." Stay tuned.
Jason Arnott won't be joining the Rangers | 01/28/2013 12:03 PM
NewsFree agent center Jason Arnott will not be joining the New York Rangers after all.
The Bergen Record
ImpactThe team decided against proceeding in contract negotiations with Arnott after medical concerns emerged. The Rangers and the veteran center had agreed to a one-year deal worth $1.6 million on Saturday, pending a physical, but he isn't 100 percent healthy. Arnott played through shoulder and knee issues last season with St. Louis and he underwent arthroscopic knee surgery during the off-season.
Rangers sign Jason Arnott to a one-year deal | 01/26/2013 6:47 PM
NewsThe New York Rangers have signed Jason Arnott to a one-year deal.
Darren Dreger on Twitter
ImpactArnott will reportedly come with an annual cap hit in the ballpark of $1.6-1.7 million. He'll provide the New York Rangers with some extra depth on their third or fourth line. He might also be a nice secondary scorer for the Rangers, but not to the point where he'll have any fantasy value in standard leagues.
