CRANBERRY — The Pittsburgh Penguins PR staff didn’t have time to do a release yet.

Penguins' Josh Archibald: Depth add for Pittsburgh

Archibald signed a one-year, $900,000 contract with the Penguins on Wednesday, Wes Crosby of NHL.com reports. Archibald was limited to one assist in eight games with the Oilers last year after suffering from myocarditis after contracting COVID-19. He was also hampered by Canada's border restrictions, though that should be less of a problem now that he's stateside. The 29-year-old will provide physicality and perhaps some penalty-killing skill in a bottom-six role for the Penguins.

Oilers' Josh Archibald: Grabs helper in return to lineup

Archibald notched an assist, three hits, two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Friday's 8-2 win over the Kings in Game 3. Archibald has played in three of the Oilers' last four games, and the team has found a travel workaround that allows him to play games in the US. The 29-year-old helped out on a Ryan Nugent-Hopkins tally in the third period. Archibald was limited to one assist in eight regular-season appearances, and he should be expected to serve as a rotational depth option during the playoffs.

Oilers' Josh Archibald: Activated from team suspension

Archibald was activated from his team suspension Saturday, per CapFriendly. As an unvaccinated player, Archibald is suspended by the Oilers when they play outside of Canada. The Oilers are at home Saturday against the Avalanche, but he'll be a healthy scratch for that contest. They'll head stateside again for their next two games -- as such, Archibald isn't expected to draw in again until next Saturday versus the Golden Knights at the earliest.

Oilers' Josh Archibald: Gets first assist

Archibald notched an assist and two hits in Tuesday's 7-5 win over the Red Wings. Archibald needed just two games to set on the scoresheet this season, and he's added five hits and five PIM. The 29-year-old winger missed five months of the season while recovering from myocarditis, and he's unlikely to play much more than a fourth-line role if he sticks in the lineup regularly.
