Oilers' Josh Archibald: Suspension served

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

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

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

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

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

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.

Could Josh Archibald Stick With Connor McDavid?

The Oilers’ win over the Canadiens on Monday night was one of the most exciting victories I’ve seen in the last few years. The way they came out in the third period and just took over that hockey game was incredible to watch. From McDavid down, the entire team seemed to find a new level and the Habs really didn’t have much of a chance once that happened.

Oilers' Josh Archibald: Nabs breakaway goal

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.
