Oilers' Josh Archibald: Suspension served
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Archibald served his one-game suspension for Monday's Game 4 versus the Jets.

Archibald would have been eligible to return to the lineup had the Oilers' season not ended with Monday's 4-3 triple overtime loss. The 28-year-old closed the campaign with 13 points, 37 PIM and 192 hits in 52 regular-season outings before notching 15 hits without a point in three playoff appearances. He should be in line to fill a bottom-six role again next season.

Oilers' Josh Archibald: Handed one-game ban
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Archibald has been suspended for one game for clipping Logan Stanley of the Jets.

Archibald will miss Monday's Game 4 in Winnipeg, and his season will be over if the Oilers fail to extend the series, in which they trail 3-0. Given his minus-1 rating and three shots without a point through this series' first three games, Archibald's absence is unlikely to have a noticeable impact. He could return for Wednesday's Game 5 if the Oilers keep their season alive.

Oilers' Josh Archibald: Could face suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Archibald will have a hearing with the Department of Player Safety after his hit on Winnipeg's Logan Stanley in Sunday's Game 3 loss.

Archibald hit Stanley low around the knees in what the Department of Player Safety is calling a clipping incident. The 28-year-old has 15 hits and a minus-1 rating so far this postseason. If he misses any time, Edmonton has a handful of possible replacements, including Dominik Kahun and Alex Chiasson.

Oilers' Josh Archibald: Slides assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Archibald provided an assist and three hits in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Canucks.

Archibald set up Darnell Nurse for the insurance tally in the third period. The 28-year-old Archibald has a four-game point streak, during which he's posted a goal and four helpers. The hard-hitting winger is up to 13 points, 172 hits, 56 shots on net and 33 PIM through 47 appearances.

Oilers' Josh Archibald: Two points on empty-netters
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Archibald scored a goal and added an assist, both on empty-net plays, in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Flames. He also recorded five hits.

Archibald wasn't very involved in the offense until the Flames pulled Jacob Markstrom for an extra attacker. Nonetheless, it'll count as Archibald's first multi-point outing this season. The physical winger has 11 points, 56 shots on goal, 169 hits and 31 PIM through 45 contests.

Oilers' Josh Archibald: Ends slump with helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Archibald recorded an assist, three hits, two shots on goal and a pair of blocked shots in Thursday's 3-1 loss to the Flames.

Archibald snapped an 11-game point drought with his assist on James Neal's first-period marker. The 28-year-old Archibald usually produces a little more offense than he has lately. He's at nine points, 55 shots on net, 164 hits and a plus-3 rating in 44 outings, although he had topped 20 points in each of the last two campaigns.

Oilers' Josh Archibald: Nabs breakaway goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Archibald scored a goal on his only shot and added three hits Monday in a 3-2 overtime win over Toronto.

Archibald opened the scoring just over six minutes into the game, winning a race to a loose puck and beating Michael Hutchinson five-hole on a breakaway. The goal was Archibald's fifth of the season and his first point in his last five contests. Archibald has the ability to play throughout the lineup for Edmonton, but he is best cast in his typical bottom-six and penalty-killing role, which offers minimal fantasy upside.

Oilers' Josh Archibald: Scores in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Archibald scored a goal on four shots and added two hits in Monday's 4-3 loss to the Flames.

Archibald kept things close with his tally at 17:07 of the second period, which cut the Flames' lead to 3-2. The 28-year-old Archibald has five goals, two assists, 37 shots and 98 hits through 27 appearances this season. The tough winger will likely continue to draw bottom-six assignments.

Oilers' Josh Archibald: Slightly physical in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Archibald (undisclosed) notched three shots on goal and three hits in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Canucks.

Archibald was held off the scoresheet in his return from a four-game absence. He contributed a little bit physically, which is usually the 28-year-old's bread and butter. Archibald has only six points in 26 outings, but he's added 96 hits, 33 shots on net and 27 PIM.

Oilers' Josh Archibald: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Archibald (undisclosed) took line rushes in warmups and appears set to return Saturday versus the Canucks, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports.

Archibald missed four games with the mystery injury. He hasn't registered a point since Feb. 20, when he scored against the Flames. Archibald will work in a fourth-line role alongside Gaetan Haas and Alex Chiasson.

Oilers' Josh Archibald: Still sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Archibald (undisclosed) won't play Wednesday against the Senators, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.

Archibald will miss a third straight game Wednesday. He's still considered day-to-day, but it isn't clear when he might be ready to return. Archibald's picked up six points in 25 games this season.

Oilers' Josh Archibald: Out for Monday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Archibald (undisclosed) won't play in Monday's game versus the Senators, Jason Gregor of OilersNation.com reports.

Archibald will miss a second straight game. The 28-year-old suited up in the first 25 games this season, recording four goals, two assists and 93 hits. Devin Shore will stay in the lineup Monday and pick up some of the physicality that Archibald typically brings to the table.

Oilers' Josh Archibald: Late scratch Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Archibald (undisclosed) will not play Saturday versus the Flames, per Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network.

It seems Archibald got hurt in warmups Saturday, as he was initially slated to play on the third line. Instead, Kyle Turris will take Archibald's place alongside Devin Shore and Jujhar Khaira. Archibald will try to be ready to return for Monday's game versus the Senators.

Oilers' Josh Archibald: Tickles twine Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Archibald scored a goal on three shots in Saturday's 7-1 win over the Flames.

Archibald struck early in the third period for the last goal of the game. He added two PIM, a pair of hits and two blocked shots for a well-rounded effort. The 28-year-old winger is up to six points, 63 hits, 18 blocks, 20 PIM and 25 shots on net through 20 games. Archibald will almost always be a better producer in non-scoring categories.

Oilers' Josh Archibald: On modest three-game point streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Archibald recorded an assist, three hits and two shots on goal in Thursday's 3-0 win over the Canadiens.

Archibald set up Jujhar Khaira for the opening tally at 8:27 of the first period. The 28-year-old has a goal and two helpers in his last three games. Overall, the Saskatchewan native is up to five points, 51 hits, 19 shots on net and eight PIM through 16 games. Outside of physicality, Archibald's contributions in fantasy are generally too inconsistent due to his limited role.

Oilers' Josh Archibald: Points in consecutive outings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Archibald posted an assist, four PIM, two blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Senators.

Archibald set up Darnell Nurse for the Oilers' first goal of the contest. The Oilers' offense was driven by the fourth line of Archibald, Jujhar Khaira and Tyler Ennis on Tuesday, but that's not likely to be the case in most games. Archibald is up to three goals, one assist, 48 hits, 14 blocked shots and eight PIM through 15 appearances this season in a checking-line role.

Oilers' Josh Archibald: Puts game away with ENG
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Archibald scored an empty-net goal on two shots and registered a team-leading six hits.

Connor McDavid passed up a chance at the empty net to dish to Archibald, who had provided a key -- and painful -- blocked shot earlier in the third period. It was the third goal of the year for Archibald, who teamed with Tyler Ennis and Jujhar Khaira to provide strong fourth-line minutes for the Oilers.

Oilers' Josh Archibald: Strikes late in first period
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Archibald scored a goal on two shots in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over the Maple Leafs.

Archibald restored a one-goal lead for Oilers with his tally at 19:46 of the first period. He started the game on the fourth line, but the 28-year-old winger got more ice time as the game went on and even took over right wing duties on Connor McDavid's line. It remains to be seen if head coach Dave Tippett will make Archibald's top-line promotion permanent -- if that happens, he'll gain some DFS appeal, while Jesse Puljujarvi will return to bottom-six obscurity. Archibald has two goals, 36 hits and a minus-4 rating in 10 appearances this season.

Oilers' Josh Archibald: Fills empty net
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Archibald scored an empty-net goal and dished out a team-high six hits in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Maple Leafs.

A low-event game came to life in the third period, but Archibald's tally made sure it was the Oilers walking away with the win. The 28-year-old winger hasn't had much success in a bottom-six role so far -- the goal was his first point in five games to go with six shots, 22 hits and seven blocked shots. He won't have much fantasy value without an unlikely move to the top-six, but he is a steady source of physicality.

Oilers' Josh Archibald: Fast goal in Game 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Archibald tallied a goal and two hits in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Blackhawks in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Qualifiers.

Archibald got a turn on Connor McDavid's wing, and the latter set up the former for a goal just 45 seconds into the contest. That would be Archibald's only point in four games in the series -- he added 17 hits and five shots. The 27-year-old winger is better suited to a bottom-six role as a physical presence, but he chipped in with 21 points in 62 contests during the regular season.
