Since being drafted, I've always thought of & compared Archibald to Tyler Kennedy. I know some people here like to **** on TK, but that's a compliment: a 2-way, hard-working energy guy, who can create some momentum, be aggressive on the forecheck, draw some penalties, and contribute a bit offensively. That's a pretty darn good player overall, and fantastic as a 6th round draft pick.


But I guess what you guys are saying about the physical play is, it sounds like he may have just a bit of Ryan Callehan. This is a player I'm excited about and have him right there with guys like Agostino & Kuhnhackl as guys who have the ability to be real contributors for this team in the future. Great to see he is stepping it up so much this year.
