It’s been a great debut season in North America for Arvidsson. He currently leads the Admirals in scoring with 51 points (19 goals, 32 assists). He made his NHL debut on March 21st and has played six games for the Nashville Predators. The timing of this distinction is also pretty great considering today is Arvidsson’s birthday. Not a bad gift from the AHL.
