PENGUINS CLAIM 5-8 ARCOBELLO
The Penguins have claimed forward Mark Arcobello (5-8, 172) off waivers from the Nashville Predators. Arcobello, 26, has 8 goals and 13 points in 40 games this season. He is a minus-7. Arcobello is 48% on draws this season, winning 254 and losing 278.
Arcobello is regarded as a skilled playmaker who works hard, but his size has limited his upside at the NHL level.
Arcobello played a lot with David Perron this season in Edmonton. That won’t happen here but the Penguins feel Arcobello can add some scoring depth to the fourth line and move up in the lineup when needed.
Arcobello is making $600,000 this season and is an RFA at seasons end.
