Archibald was sent down to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Friday.

Archibald racked up 29 points in 61 outings with the Baby Pens earlier in the year and should provide a much-needed scoring boost for their Game 1 matchup with AHL Providence on Friday. Once Pittsburgh knows its second-round schedule, the 24-year-old will almost certainly be called up to provide additional roster depth, but for now will get a chance to get back into a game, something he hasn't been able to do since the regular-season finale April 9.
