Jason Arnott is a Canadian center on the New Jersey Devils.

Arnott was a highly touted rookie when he was drafted by Edmonton in 1993, after scoring 98 points in the OHL the previous season. Unfortunately for Arnott, his impressive rookie campaign of 33 goals and 68 points was dwarfed by Martin Brodeur’s phenomenal rookie season. Arnott spent four more season with Edmonton, before being traded to New Jersey in 1999. Arnott was a key part of the Devils 2000 Stanley Cup Championship. In 2002, Arnott was dealt to Dallas, where he had his best season of his career in 2005-06 with 32 goals and 76 points. Arnott signed a contract with Nashville in 2006. He was a member of the 2008 All-Star team, on the way to scoring 72 points with the Predators. Arnott had two more good years in Nashville, helping the Predators reach the postseason in 2010, where they were eliminated by the eventual Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks in the first round. During the 2010 offseason, the Predators were unable to come up with the money Arnott wanted and he signed with his former team in New Jersey, giving them yet another booming shot on their offense.

Arnott was a member of Team Canada at the 1994 World Championships, and was on the reserves at the 1996 World Cup of Hockey.
