WINNIPEG - Manitoba Moose training camp almost got off with a bang on Monday morning when news leaked that Winnipegger and NHL veteran Tyler Arnason had agreed to terms with the club.
But by noon that story had fizzed as Arnason, who was released by the Florida Panthers last week, elected not to report to Moose camp.
It's unknown where Arnason will go from here.
Born in Oklahoma City and raised in Winnipeg, Arnason has played 487 NHL games scoring 88 goals and 157 assists.
The Moose reported for medicals Monday morning and were scheduled to hold their first practice at 3 p.m.
