Twenty years of pro hockey saw Arbour get into the NHL for just 47 total games over two seasons, with first Detroit and then Toronto.

Arbour, the brother of Ty, was a star in Western Canada with Calgary in the early 1920s until he was sold to the Detroit Cougars prior to the start of the 1926-27 season. He produced five points and 46 penalty minutes with the first-year franchise, but the team didn't make the playoffs and he found himself in the minors with the Detroit Olympic the next year.

At this point, he was traded from Detroit to Toronto for Sailor Herberts, one of the bigger deals of the time, but he lasted only ten games with the Maple Leafs before being demoted to the Can-Pro league. Although Arbour never made it back to the NHL, he did play another decade, first with the old Windsor Bulldogs if the International league and later in the Pacific Coast league. He retired in 1939.
