Agency

Arnason was a shifty pivot and solid playmaker but he struggled with consistency, especially as the season dragged on. He was a tricky stickhandler who protected the puck well but he lacked explosiveness in his skating to really surprise defenses. He did have a penetrating shot but too often he shot from too far out. Defensively he struggled with consistency but shook off early-career criticisms to be an average player without the puck. His poor face-off proficiency was a concern, however.
Overall, Arnason was a skilled center with good vision and offensive ability, but would consistently fail to show discipline and motivation in order to really make it as a professional hockey player.
Represented USA on the World championship in 2007.

Father: Chuck Arnason
