Playing career

Jason Arnott was drafted by the Edmonton Oilers in the 1st round (7th overall) on June 26 1993, following an impressive tenure with the Oshawa Generals in the OHL. In 1993-94, as a rookie, Arnott played three games as a left winger, scored 68 points and was the runner-up to future teammate Martin Brodeur for the Calder Memorial Trophy for rookie of the year. On January 4, 1998, Arnott was traded to the New Jersey Devils along with Bryan Muir for Valeri Zelepukin and Bill Guerin. As a member of the A Line on the New Jersey Devils with Patrik Eliáš and Petr Sýkora he led the team to the 2000 Stanley Cup championship, scoring the Cup-winning goal in double overtime of game six against the Dallas Stars. On March 19, 2002 he was traded to the Dallas Stars with Randy McKay for Joe Nieuwendyk and Jamie Langenbrunner.

In 2005-06 Arnott had a career high 76 points for Dallas and scoring 32 goals, the most since his rookie season in which he had 33. He also set a career high of 44 assists. In the offseason, he signed a five year contract for $22.5 million with the Nashville Predators.

There is an arena in Wasaga Beach that honors Jason and is home of the Wasaga Stars.
