Playing careerEdit

On November 9, 2010, the Boston Bruins recalled Arniel on an emergency basis from the AHL's Providence Bruins, and on November 28, 2010, Arniel made his NHL debut, suiting up for the Bruins in an away game against the Atlanta Thrashers. He was awarded a Stanley Cup Ring and included on team picture for his play. However, Arniel did not qualify to have name engraved on the Stanley Cup (41 regular season game, or 1 game in the finals).[1]

On August 20, 2012, Arniel signed in Europe to a one-year contract with Eisbären Berlin of the German DEL.[2] In his second European season, Arniel transferred from Lukko Rauma of the Finnish Liiga, to Dornbirner EC of the Austrian EBEL.[3]

Having joined the Vienna Capitals for the 2018–19 season, Arniel continued in the EBEL scoring 11 points through 19 games. On February 14, 2019, Arniel was mutually released from his contract in returning to the DEL in joining Augsburger Panther for the remainder of the campaign.[4]
