A goal-scoring power forward who possesses a great shot that can beat goalies at any level. MacArthur has a quick release that he can get off anywhere and anytime in the offensive zone and is capable of getting a ton of power behind his shot. He works well off the puck and can get himself open in the high-slot for prime scoring opportunities. He’s an early 2001 birthdate, so he is a double overaged player in this class. He has NHL size and compete, looks comfortable working in tight spaces and battling along the boards against his fellow junior opponents. His skating and puck skills still need some improvement, he lacks quickness that will hold him back as he progresses to higher levels of hockey. MacArthur struggles to find passing lanes and with execution on difficult passes making it difficult to contribute as a playmaking threat. Even though he is more of a one-dimensional offensive threat, his goalscoring instincts and his physical maturity will have him on team’s draft lists because he will be able to contribute on special teams. The fact that he’s already 20-years-old will also stick out to some teams because they will be able to bring him in right away and allow him to develop in their organization from day one regardless of NHL-readiness.
