Report: Arnott deal with Rangers scuttled after failed physical

7 Comments

It sounds like Jason Arnott won’t add veteran depth to the New York Rangers’ lineup, after all.

ESPN New York’s Katie Strang reports that team doctors did not clear the 38-year-old, ending his chances of finalizing what was believed to be a prorated deal worth between $1.6-$1.7 million.

The big center scored 17 goals and 34 points in 72 games for the St. Louis Blues last season.

While it’s not a sure thing, this development makes one wonder if we’ve seen the last of the two-time All-Star.
