Where is Jamie Arniel?

...to the best of my knowledge he is still a Providence Bruin...which makes him
an exception.

With today's recall of Justin DiBenedetto, the Isles could have three of the
four leading scorers from the 2008-09 Sarnia Sting in the lineup when the face
the Caps in Washington on Tuesday.

DiBenedetto led the team in scoring: 45-48-93
Arniel was 2nd, 32-36-68
Matt Martin was 3rd 35-30-65
Mark Katic led all defensemen, and was 4th: 13-41-54

The Sting went 35-26-4-3 in 2008-09 and lost to Plymouth in the first round of
the playoffs.

DiBenedetto finished the year third in the OHL in scoring, 11 points behind John
Tavares and 1 point behind Chris Terry (Hurricanes organization).

If the only change to tomorrow's lineup is DiBenedetto replacing Rob Schremp,
the average age of the 20 Isles dressed will drop to 24.46 years -- coinciding
to an average birthdate of September 13, 1986. (Andrew MacDonald was born on
9/7/86)
