OTTAWA, Ontario -- Clarke MacArthur reported to the Ottawa Senators training camp healthy and excited for the season. Marlon Humphrey Womens Jersey . He never imagined his plans would be derailed in a simple scrimmage.Speaking to the media for the first time since suffering his fourth concussion, the 31-year-old player talked about the hit that knocked him out of action and vowed to return to the ice this season.Playing in a Sept. 25 scrimmage, MacArthur had just played a puck in the corner and was about to turn up ice when he was hit by defenseman Patrick Sieloff.First thing I remember I was looking straight up at the bright lights, like I was at a KISS concert or something, MacArthur said. Then I kind of put two and two together what happened. I was upset, obviously. Just going through what I went through last year I was just praying it wasnt going to be the same thing and so far things have been a lot better and moving along a lot quicker.MacArthur entered the scrimmage symptom-free after missing all but four games last season as he recovered from a previous devastating concussion.He has been at the rink regularly and has even resumed light skating of late. He continues to suffer some symptoms, but not to the same degree as last year when he could barely function.And MacArthur was quick to affirm hes not currently considering retirement.No. At this point I was obviously devastated by the hit, along with other people who have been around me and been through it, but Im standing up here today and hopefully the next time we do this it will be before my first game or another step forward in a positive way, MacArthur said.Married and a father of two young children, MacArthur understands people will question his decision to return to the game, but says only he can know whats in his best interest.I take my information from the doctors, he said. Were taking it a step at a time and if they say Im OK to play then I want to keep playing.I just feel at my age I still have a lot to give and Im not ready for the next chapter yet so Im going to continue with this one if I can. Im the only one who knows how my body feels. I feel if I can keep making steps in the right direction, then some people wont like it, but there will be people that do like it too. I want to continue playing if I can.MacArthurs absence leaves a void both on and off the ice. Not only is he a skilled forward, but he is easily one of the most popular members of the team and a significant part of the leadership group.The Senators want to ensure MacArthur feels part of the team, and he will join the team for its western Canadian trip next week.To see him battling the way he is and showing persistence means a lot to us, defenseman Mark Borowiecki said. Hes just such a huge part of this team. To have him around us is special for all of us. You never want to see something like this happen to anyone, but it stings a little more when its someone like Clarke. It will be great to have him on the road.At this point MacArthur has no timetable on his return, but is willing to be patient.Its hard to say right now, he said. Every day Im trying to just do a little more and see where Im at every day. Im slowly getting better. Its going to take a while.

Anthony Calvillo, through 20 CFL seasons, was frequently invincible and largely stoic in the heat of competition. But underneath the professional exterior he was, and is, compellingly human. http:///...rmley-Ravens-Jersey/ . Its an influence in football and a big part of the game.Premier League spending in a single season has gone over £1bn for the first time this term after a lively finish to the January transfer window. Top flight clubs have spent £172.65m over the last month to go into 10 figures for the first time in the competitions 24-year history.Newcastle parted with the most cash, paying out £29m as they brought Andros Townsend, Jonjo Shelvey and Henri Saivet to St James Park.

Stoke, meanwhile, paid the highest single fee as they recruited Porto midfielder Giannelli Imbula for £18.3m just minutes before the window closed on Monday night.Norwich made the most new signings with eight players coming in while Bournemouth, Sunderland, Watford and Newcastle all brought in five.Indeed, only Manchester United, Tottenham and bottom side Aston Villa failed to bring in any reinforcements in the biggest January window for five years. Giannelli Imbula cost Stoke a club record £18.3m from Porto Dan Jones, partner in the Sports Business Group at Deloitte, said: Premier League clubs have chosen to spend significantly in this years January transfer window.A total spend of (almost) £175m this window has contributed to Premier League clubs passing the £1billion threshold for spending in a season for the first time.Notably, this Januarys spending has been driven in large part by clubs in the bottom half of the table. Newcastle were Januarys biggest spenders as they brought in three players including Andros Townsend The new broadcast deal for Premier League clubs from next season and the threat of missing out through relegation is contributing to clubs investing in an attempt to stay in the league.Of the money spent in January, £110m went to overseas clubs compared with £65m 12 months ago.Around £40m was spent on Deadline Day itself and Newcastle spent more money in January than all of La Liga combined.Notably, the clubs in the Premier Leagues bottom six accounted for £90m - while the Championships leading sides were responsible for 70 per cent of the £35m spent at that level. Jordan Rhodes joined Middlesbrough from Blackburn as Championship clubs spent £35m Alexander Thorpe, senior manager in the Sports Business Group at Deloitte, added: The prospect of increased revenue from the new broadcast deals starting next season has encouraged clubs at the lower end of the Premier League to invest this window.So too have we seen significant spending by those clubs aspiring to Premier League status with spending by Championship clubs totalling over £30m this January.
