ImpactArcobello got off to a great start with 10 assists in his first 10 games but cooled off after becoming popular on the waiver wire and had only four goals and eight points in his final 31 games.

Mark Arcobello has 3 points in last 2 games | 12/06/2013 9:10 AM
NewsMark Arcobello had a goal and an assist in Edmonton's 8-2 win over Colorado on Thursday.
ImpactThat gives Arcobello three points in his last two games. Fantasy owners that remember Arcobello's point-per-game pace at the beginning of the season might be eager to pick him up in the hopes of riding another hot streak. However, keep in mind that Arcobello was getting top-six minutes in October as the Oilers' dealt with injuries. By contrast he logged just 12:46 minutes on Thursday and he's not likely to see his role significantly increase again despite his recent offensive outburst.
Mark Arcobello's hot start a distant memory | 12/04/2013 9:49 AM
NewsMark Arcobello had an assist in Tuesday's 6-2 loss to Phoenix.
ImpactArcobello took advantage of some of the Oilers' early injuries to record 10 points in his first 10 games.

ImpactArcobello was sent down on Friday and did not participate in any AHL games. He has two goals and 12 points in 20 games with the Oilers but had only two goals and no assists in his last 10 games after getting off to a great start with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Sam Gagner, the Oilers top two centers, not in the lineup in the early part of the season due to injuries. He is a bottom six player unless Edmonton runs into more injuries at center and should be left on the waiver wire for now.

ImpactArcobello got off to a great start this season with 10 assists in his first 10 games. However, he got his big break because the Oilers were dealing with injury troubles and as their centers started getting healthy, Arcobello got less ice time. He went from averaging 17:45 minutes in October to just 14:48 minutes in his last six contests. It still wouldn't be surprising to see him get another chance later this season.

Mark Arcobello tied for NHL assists lead | 10/23/2013 9:37 AM
NewsMark Arcobello is tied for the NHL lead in assists with 10 in 10 games.

ImpactTaylor Hall is projected to serve as the team's top pivot entering the 2013-14 campaign due to Ryan-Nugent Hopkins' injury and Arcobello could be Sam Gagner's replacement.

Mark Arcobello may get NHL shot this year | 08/19/2013 11:49 AM
NewsMark Arcobello was a star in the AHL last season, but it may be hard for him to stick around at the NHL level.
ImpactAt 5-foot-9 and 165 pounds he gives up a lot in terms of size, but he appears to have the skill to be successful if given the opportunity at an NHL role. Arcobello led the Oklahoma City Barons in scoring during the regular season with 68 points in 70 games and in playoffs with 20 points in 17 contests. He played with Jordan Eberle and Taylor Hall in the AHL last year during the lockout and could get a chance to play with them again as a member of the Oilers if Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (shoulder) isn't ready for the start of the 2013-14 season. He may be worth looking into after training camp as a short-term pickup, but he isn't guaranteed to spend much of the year in the NHL.

ImpactHe is slated to start Wednesday night's contest there in the place of injured forward Ryan Nugent-Hopkins.
