Scott William Arniel
Position: Left Wing
Born September 17, 1962 in Kingston, Ontario
Height: 6' 1" Weight: 170
Winnipeg's 2nd choice, 22nd overall, in 1981 Entry Draft. Traded to Buffalo Sabres for Gilles Hamel, June 21, 1986. Traded to Jets by Buffalo Sabres with Phil Housley, Jeff Parker and Buffalo's 1st round choice (Keith Tkachuk) in 1990 Entry Draft for Dale Hawerchuk, Winnipeg's 1st round choice (Brad May) in 1990 Entry Draft and future considerations, June 16, 1990. Traded to Boston Bruins for future considerations, November 22, 1991.
The Jets selected Scott Arniel of the Cornwall Royals with the first pick of the second round of the 1981 Entry Draft. In Cornwall, he had been a teammate of Dale Hawerchuk, whom the Jets picked with their first-round selection that year. Arniel split the 1981-1982 season between the Jets and Cornwall, then remained with the Jets through the 1985-1986 season before being traded to the Buffalo Sabres in the summer of 1986 in exchange for Gilles Hamel. After four seasons in Buffalo, the Jets reacquired him in the summer of 1990 as part of the Dale Hawerchuk trade. He spent the 1990-1991 season with the Jets before being dealt to the Boston Bruins. He split the 1991-1992 season between the Bruins and their farm team, then he moved on and spent several seasons in the minor leagues, then turned to coaching after his playing career came to an end. During his first tour of duty with the Jets, he once said “I wouldn't mind being traded” and subsequently had to talk his way out of a minor-league demotion.
