19. Magnus Arvedson
Stats: 393 GP, 92G, 210P
Height/Weight: 6foot2, 198lbs
Acquired: 1997 NHL Entry Draft (5th Round)
The Ottawa Senators struck late round gold in 1996 and 1997 by the way of Andreas Dackell and Magnus Arvedson. Both would make immediate moves to North America and would become NHL pieces after being drafted as overage players.
Magnus Arvedson was a fan-favourite during his time in Ottawa. He was a career Senator, as he spent all but 41 of his NHL games with the Senators. The other 41 were spent with the Vancouver Canucks, where he finished his career. Arvedson was not a dynamic scorer in his day, but rather he was a steady and responsible forward.
That led to Arvedson completing over 400 games in a Sens jersey, where he recorded 210 points. He was a good sized forward and was heralded as being one of the game’s most responsible two-way forwards.
Sadly, his career came to an end as a 31-year-old as the grinding took a toll on his back, forcing him into an early retirement.
Looking at his point totals, Arvedson might seem to be a little high on this list. However, he is looked back on fondly as being an underrated, likeable figure among Senators and good enough of a high ranking on this list.
