Clarke MacArthur of the Ottawa Senators could miss their next two games according to Senators Coach Paul MacLean.

Talking on Friday, MacLean said: "That's a big loss,

"as we've said lots of times in the past, it's a good opportunity too. Somebody else gets to step up and play in that spot."

The team confirmed that the Forward would miss Saturday's game with the Winnipeg Jets and is doubtful for Monday's clash with the Nashville Predators.

MacArthur was hurt during Wednesday's loss to the Calgary flames when just 19 seconds into the period he knocked Flames leading scorer Jiri Hudler into the boards.

This sparked a strong reaction from Calgary Defenseman Chris Butler who then collided with MacArthur.

Hudler is the most unfortunate of the two as he is now out for two games with an upper - body injury sustained in the original challenge while MacArthur is out with a hand injury.
