Mark Arcobello, he of waiver wire fame, has decided to sign overseas with Swiss League club SC Bern.
Arcobello is coming off a year in which he managed to stay in just one city — Toronto — though he did bounce back and forth a lot between the Maple Leafs and their AHL affiliate, the Marlies.
The 27-year-old had four points in 20 games for the Leafs, and 59 in 49 games for the Marlies. That statline sort of sums up Arcobello’s career — terrific producer at the AHL level, but found it difficult to translate that success to the bigs.
Doesn’t mean teams weren’t willing to take a chance on the 5-foot-8, 172-pounder.
There was that infamous stretch in ’14-15 when he was waived twice and played for three different teams in a month, eventually landing in Arizona — and it was with the Coyotes where he set some NHL history, becoming the second player to ever record at least a point with four teams in one campaign.
All told, Arcobello played in 139 games at the NHL level, scoring 53 points.
