Jason William Arnott (born October 11, 1974 in Collingwood, Ontario, Canada) is a professional ice hockey center and team captain of the Nashville Predators of the National Hockey League. He began his NHL career with the Edmonton Oilers in 1993–94 after being selected seventh overall in the 1993 NHL Entry Draft and was named to the NHL All-Rookie Team. A two-time NHL All-Star, Arnott won the Stanley Cup with the New Jersey Devils in 2000, scoring the championship-winning goal in the second overtime of game six. Arnott also played for the Dallas Stars before joining the Predators in 2006.

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 78 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 at 8:20 of double overtime in 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, a hugely unpopular trade in Dallas.

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.
