I wont be able to watch the rest of the game, so here is a summary about what I saw of Archambault tonite:

He has no problem following the play in AHL thanks to his great set of wheels. He showed great speed and great hands. He can do some really nifty plays.

Actually, he was the most dangerous players for the Dogs so far. Had 3-4 chance to score.

But he looks small, tiny and is easily pushed away by the opponents.

He looks high on adrenaline tonite: being all over the ice. On one back-check play, he was so speedy that he found himself deeper in his own zone than his two defs!

I would say he may need maybe 2 years of seasonings: Training, gaining weight, positioning, etc but he definitely looks a better prospect than I tought.

I dunno how his game will translate in NHL, but he is the most explosive player I saw in Hamilton this year.......till Kristo maybe....
