Dean Arsene (born July 20, 1980 in Murrayville, British Columbia) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman, currently under a two-way contract with the National Hockey League's Edmonton Oilers. He is a left-handed defenceman.
To date, Arsene's professional career has been almost solely in the American Hockey League, where he has played eight seasons. He spent six of those seasons (from 2003-2004 to 2008-2009) with the Hershey Bears, winning the league's championship Calder Cup twice in that tenure, and earning the fond nickname "Mayor of Chocolatetown."
Following the 2008-2009 season, Arsene chose to sign the two-way contract with Edmonton in the hope of earning some playing time in the NHL. That hope was realized when he was called up for a two-game stint in late 2009. He was later recalled on an emergency basis on March 22, 2010, finishing out the rest of the 2009-2010 season with Edmonton.
