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.
Archibald was recalled from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Saturday, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Archibald makes a quick return the big club after Chris Kunitz (lower body) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Hurricanes. Assuming none of the other three injured Penguins is able to go Sunday, Archibald will likely find himself on Pittsburgh's fourth line.
Archibald was reassigned to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Thursday. Archibald was one of two Pittsburgh forwards -- along with Oskar Sundqvist -- to be sent back to the minors, which could be an indication that a couple injured Pens are ready to suit back up. Jake Guentzel (concussion) seems the most likely returnee, with fantasy owners and fans alike hoping Evgeni Malkin (upper body) is the other. With the Baby Pens, Archibald has tallied 16 goals and 13 assists while posting an impressive plus-26 rating.
Archibald was recalled from AHL WIlkes/Barre-Scranton on Thursday, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Archibald has been up with the Pens in an earlier stint this season, scoring two goals across three games played. The 24-year-old will once again provide Pittsburgh with forward depth -- a position where injuries have started to rack up since Archibald was sent down on March 16.
Archibald was sent down to AHL Wilkes/Barre-Scranton on Thursday. Archibald's reassignment could mean injured wingers Patric Hornqvist (concussion) or Bryan Rust (arm) are nearing a return for Friday's matchup with New Jersey. The 24-year-old Archibald logged just one game during this most recent stint in the NHL, logging just 9:19 of ice time and one shot on goal in that lone appearance. With the depth of talent ahead of him, it seems doubtful the Saskatchewan native will secure a permanent place on the Pens' 23-man roster any time soon.
