McArthur played a game for the Guelph Storm in 1995-96 then played three more full seasons with the Ontario Hockey League club after that. McArthur was a part of the Robertson Cup winning Storm team of 1997-98. Guelph went to the Memorial Cup and lost in the final to the Portland Winter Hawks in overtime, 4-3.
Undrafted by an NHL club, Darryl played the better part of two seasons in the Canadian university system with University of New Brunswick.
For the most part, McArthur has spent his career in the CHL, IHL and UHL. He got into two games with the American Hockey League’s Houston Aeros in 2002-03 and played a season in Germany’s Oberliga in 2004-05 with the Leipzig Ice Lions. He played five seasons with the CHL’s Austin Ice Bats before their extinction after the 2007-08 season. Darryl was the last captain of the ill-fated franchise.
Texas currently sits in the middle of the Berry Conference of the CHL. The conference is tight and the Brahmas have four to five games in hand on most of the other teams. Potentially, the team could soon be in second place and gunning for first.

The other day, we featured another member of the 1997-98 Guelph Storm Robertson Cup winning team, Eric Beaudoin.
We did a post last year on the members of the 1997-98 Guelph Storm team that were still active in pro hockey for the 2009-10 season. Since Darryl took a timeout last season, he was not included in the article.
