Jamie Arniel (born November 16, 1989) is a Canadian ice hockey player, currently playing for HK Poprad of the Slovakian hockey league. He was last seen in the NHL playing for the Boston Bruins during the 2010-11 season. Drafted by the Bruins 97th overall in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, Arniel returned to the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) for one more season with the Sarnia Sting before turning pro. He recorded 68 points in 63 games, his highest total achieved in the league, but the team fell short in the first round of the OHL Playoffs.
In his rookie season with the Providence Bruins of the American Hockey League (AHL), Arniel recorded 12 goals and 28 points in 67 games as he adjusted to the change of pace and physicality. He followed it up the next year by nearly doubling his goal and point totals, earning a one game stint in the NHL. In the only game he’d play with Boston, Arniel recorded no points and finished with a minus-1 rating. He would not be re-called after that, spending one final season played entirely in Providence.
The former AHL Rookie of the Month (December, 2010) and AHL All-Star participant didn’t receive interest from any NHL club and, as a result, opted to pursue his career overseas. He joined Eisbären Berlin of the Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL) in 2013 and immediately had an impact, recording five assists in 13 playoff games, leading up to the team capturing the DEL Championship. After trips in Finland, Austria, and Italy, Arniel landed in Slovakia, where he finished the 2021-22 season with HK Poprad.
