Archibald signed a one-year, minor-league contract with AHL Toronto on Monday.
Since Archibald's deal isn't of the two-way variety, the Maple Leafs won't hold his rights, allowing any of the NHL's 31 teams to pick him up if a club deems him worthy of a promotion from the AHL. The 29-year-old split the 2018-19 campaign between the Senators and Canucks and their respective AHL affiliates at Belleville and Utica. He tallied 33 points in 51 AHL games and two points in 12 games at the NHL level.
Archibald was reassigned to AHL Belleville on Friday, Dean Brown of the Senators Radio Network reports.
Archibald was called up Thursday morning, ahead of a road contest against the Devils, but he turned in a minus-2 rating and failed to record a shot over 9:50 of ice time in the 4-0 loss. Apparently, the Senators have altered their short-term plans with the trade deadline looming, and it involves highly touted forward prospect Drake Batherson getting another shot at the top level.
Archibald was recalled from AHL Belleville on Thursday, Steve Lloyd of TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.
Archibald has frequently shuffled about the organization's ranks this season, but it's worth noting that the roster makeup of the parent club could change drastically since the team's top point-getters -- Matt Duchene (undisclosed) and Mark Stone -- are considered attractive trade pieces ahead of Monday's deadline. Over 54 games at the top level, covering stints between the Canucks and Senators, Archibald has compiled 14 points (six goals, eight assists).
The Senators assigned Archibald to AHL Belleville on Sunday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Archibald played in one game with the big club during this stint, logging just 4:21 TOI and blocking a shot. The Senators only have 11 healthy forwards on the roster now. Therefore, either Mikkel Boedker (abdomen) or Jack Rodewald (undisclosed) is nearing recovery or Archibald will likely be recalled for Monday's game versus the Blackhawks.
Archibald was recalled from AHL Belleville on Thursday.
Archibald has suited up in one game for the Senators this season and his recall comes just a day after being demoted to the minors. This move was facilitated by Mark Borowiecki being sidelined with a foot injury, though it remains to be seen whether or not Archibald will crack the lineup for Thursday's contest in Detroit. Regardless, Archibald shouldn't be counted upon for offensive production.
The Senators reassigned Archibald to AHL Belleville on Wednesday.
Archibald's demotion suggests Jack Rodewald (undisclosed) may be ready to return Thursday against Detroit. The 29-year-old forward will return to a prominent role with Belleville, where he's notched six points in eight appearances this campaign.
The Senators recalled Archibald from AHL Belleville on Tuesday.
Between stops in Ottawa and Vancouver this season, Archibald has tallied one goal and one assist across 10 games while averaging less than eight minutes of ice time per appearance. He'll likely be ticketed for a bottom-six role or serve as a healthy scratch for the duration of his stint with the parent club.
Archibald was sent down to AHL Belleville on Saturday.
Archibald hasn't suited up for the big club since Jan. 12 and didn't see any game action during his latest stint with Ottawa. He's eclipsed 10 minutes of ice time just once in 10 NHL appearances this season.
Archibald was recalled from AHL Belleville on Saturday.
Archibald's services are needed since Mikkel Boedker (abdomen) is on injured reserve. The former doesn't have much to offer in fantasy leagues since his status depends on the health of more established players.
Archibald was sent down to AHL Belleville on Monday.
With Matt Duchene (personal) back with the team, Archibald was the odd man out in the forward corps. Still, the Sens don't have any extra depth up front, so the 28-year-old could find himself making his way back to Ottawa prior to Wednesday's clash with Colorado.
Archibald was promoted from AHL Belleville on Monday.
Acquired by the Senators on Jan. 2, Archibald would be making his Ottawa debut if he slots into the lineup versus the Ducks on Wednesday. The team is heading out on a three-game swing through California, so it likely wanted to have a spare forward should somebody pick up an injury. In his nine outings for the Canucks this season, the winger logged two points, 12 PIM and eight hits while averaging a mere 7:38 of ice time.
The Canucks traded Archibald and goaltender Anders Nilsson to Ottawa in exchange for Mike McKenna, Tom Pyatt and a 2019 sixth-round pick Wednesday.
Archibald has only two points in nine NHL games, with the 28-year-old spending most of his time with AHL Utica this season. In 2018-19, the right winger has scored 11 goals and 16 points in 23 minor-league games, but it remains to be seen what type of role Archibald will fill with the struggling Senators who, with each passing day, fall further and further out of playoff contention. Even if he carves out a consistent NHL role with his new club, Archibald's lack of production makes him a low-value commodity in fantasy.
The Canucks reassigned Archibald to AHL Utica on Saturday, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.
Archibald has only averaged 6:41 of ice time in nine appearances since being summoned by the big club Oct. 30, so this move isn't surprising. The 28-year-old winger will return to a prominent role with AHL Utica, where he's notched four goals and six points in eight games this campaign.
The Canucks recalled Archibald from AHL Utica on Tuesday, Patrick Johnston of the Vancouver Province reports.
The Canucks are dealing with a number of injuries up front, so Archibald will provide the team with extra depth at forward for the foreseeable future. The 28-year-old winger has tallied four goals and six assists in eight AHL appearances this season.
Archibald was assigned to AHL Utica on Sunday.
Archibald suited up for one game in this NHL stint, scoring a goal during 8:29 of ice time. The Canucks are getting healthy up front, however, so Archibald's services are no longer needed with the big club.
Archibald was recalled from AHL Utica on Tuesday, Irfaan Gaffar of Sportsnet reports.
Archibald landed on waivers in early October and was ultimately sent down without appearing in a game for the Canucks. He will provide some depth up front for the team's upcoming two-game road trip, but there's no guarantee Archibald will draw into the lineup either Wednesday or Thursday.
Archibald was placed on waivers Monday, the team's official site reports.
Unlike the decision to place Sam Gagner on waivers, the Canucks opting to waive Archibald was expected. The 28-year-old's limited skillset has kept him in the minors for most of his professional career, limiting him to just 43 NHL games since making his debut with Vancouver back in 2013-14. The native of Newmarket, Ontario figures to ride more buses than planes in 2018-19.
Archibald will sign a one-year, two-way contract with the Canucks.
Archibald played in just 27 games at the NHL level during the 2017-18 campaign, tallying four goals and five assists. The winger also spent time with AHL Utica, where he recorded seven goals and nine assists in 25 games. He'll once again split the upcoming campaign between the two teams considering his two-way contract, which will likely limit Archibald's overall fantasy impact.
Archibald (undisclosed) will slot back in for Thursday's tilt against the Coyotes.
Archibald will return following a one-game stint on the sidelines. Prior to getting hurt, the winger snagged two points in his previous trio of outings. While the 27-year-old set career highs in goals (four), assists (four) and shots (27), he still played in a mere 25 contests, which limits his fantasy value.
Archibald (illness) was absent from warmups and won't play Tuesday against the Golden Knights, Irfaan Gaffar of Sportsnet reports.
Archibald has played 25 straight games since being signed in February, and he's scored eight points and dished out 72 hits. This surprise scratch will allow Nic Dowd to enter the lineup, and Archibald will look to re-enter the lineup Thursday against the Coyotes.
