Biography

33 year old forward Jamie Arniel is a new face for the Devils in 2023-24.

Arniel played for EC Kassel Huskies in the German DEL2 league, the same league that Head Coach Pete Russell coached in and won the playoff championship last season.  Arniel’s team dominated the regular season, losing only 8 games all year.  He led the Huskies in scoring with 17 goals and 31 assists for 48 points in 47 games. 

Before playing in Kassel, Arniel started the 2021-22 season with the Bratislava Capitals then moved to HK Poprad in the top Slovakian league.  He only played 37 games with Poprad but finished second in scoring with 20 goals and 21 assists.

Originally from Kingston, Ontario, Arniel was a 4th round NHL draft pick of the Boston Bruins.  After four seasons in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL), he turned pro with the Bruins farm team, playing three years in Providence in the American Hockey League (AHL).  He played one game in the NHL for the Bruins in the 2010-11 season. 

He moved to Europe in 2012-13 to play for Eisbaren Berlin where he won the DEL Championship.  He had a year in Finland before finding a home in Dornbirner EC in the Austrian League (IceHL) where he played for five seasons, finishing at or near the top of the team’s scoring chart each season. 

A right handed natural centreman, Arniel plays a 200 foot game and will be an asset on the powerplay.  Arniel will be attending Cardiff Metropolitan University to complete a Masters in Business Administration this season.
