Place of Birth
Arcuri showed flashes of his offensive upside in the OHL last season but struggled with consistency. He has good skating and has the speed and acceleration to get in behind the defense for a breakaway or create separation. He has a decent shot that can find the net when it’s supposed but doesn’t yet have the power to consistently score from range. Where Arcuri really looks solid is his playmaking. He has solid vision and looks to find open teammates in the offensive zone for scoring chances. He looks to move the puck up the ice quick in transition and is great at finding the open man with speed on the breakout. He has great offensive awareness and is usually in the right position in the offensive zone. Defensively, he can be caught looking for his man and hesitating but once he picks up the system, that may change. Arcuri needs to put on some muscle to be able to win more puck battles in front of the net and play more physically down the middle but once he does, I see him being a really solid prospect with good offensive upside.
