Penguins' Josh Archibald: Dishing out hits
Archibald is pointless in his last seven contests, including Wednesday's win over Colorado, but continues to rack up hits with 19 over that seven-game stretch.
Hits are about the only fantasy value that Archibald has provided of late, as he has managed just seven shots, four blocks and four PIM during his pointless streak. Stuck in a fourth-line role, Archibald could find himself periodically scratched from the lineup in favor of Alexander Nylander as well as potentially being dropped whenever Nick Bonino (abdomen) returns to action....

Archibald notched an assist, two shots on goal and three hits in Friday's 6-3 win over the Ducks.
Archibald was playing in just his second game since missing 18 with a lower-body injury. The 30-year-old helped out on Pierre-Olivier Joseph's opening tally in the first period. Archibald is up to four goals, three assists, 44 shots on net, 116 hits, 18 PIM and a plus-9 rating through 32 contests this season. He'll likely continue to log fourth-line minutes, though he could be an occasional scratch if head coach Mike Sullivan wants a different look among his depth forwards.... See More ... See Less

Archibald will have just one more chance to return to action before the All-Star break against San Jose on Saturday.

Archibald (lower body) practiced without limitations Tuesday but won't be in action versus the Panthers, Matt Vensel of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Archibald (lower body) practiced in a non-contract sweater Tuesday, Pens Inside Scoop reports but will make the trip for Wednesday's matchup with Ottawa.
Considering Archibald hasn't been cleared for contact, he probably shouldn't be expected to play versus Ottawa on Wednesday, though he hasn't been officially ruled out. Even once given the green light, Archibald may have to serve as a healthy scratch periodically and could struggle to offer more than low-end fantasy value.... See More ... See Less

Archibald has already missed the Penguins' last three contests and with his retroactive placement on IR can be activated as soon as cleared to play.

Archibald is currently mired in a 10-game pointless streak during which he has recorded just 11 shots and averaged a mere 9:38 of ice time. Even if the Saskatchewan native is cleared to play, he will likely remain in a fourth-line role, limiting his opportunities to offer more than low-end fantasy value.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Josh Archibald: Dealing with lower-body injury
Archibald suffered a lower-body injury that kept him out of practice Monday, Pens Inside Scoop reports.
Archibald should probably be considered questionable at this point to suit up against the Rangers on Tuesday. If the winger does miss out, Drew O'Connor figures to step into a fourth-line role. For his part, the 30-year-old Archibald has six points in 30 games this year and is currently mired in a 10-game goal drought.... See More ... See Less

Archibald failed to record a point against Columbus on Tuesday, his fifth straight game without getting on the scoresheet.
Archibald has logged less than 10 minutes of ice time in two of his last five outings, so his lack of offensive production shouldn't come as a shock.

Archibald (undisclosed) will be a game-time call for Wednesday's matchup with Washington, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Even with Archibald healthy, he could still find himself watching from the sidelines if Jeff Carter (upper body) is also cleared to return. Prior to getting hurt, Archibald scored a goal in back-to-back games, though that didn't stop the Penguins from falling into a seven-game losing streak. If he does play, Archibald should be expected to fill a bottom-six role.... See More ... See Less
