Darren with 4 assists in the K-Wings' last game.

Which gives him 5 assists & 5 shots in the last two games. Maybe he deserves some goals in the upcoming ones?

He's currently also leading the K-Wings in plus/minus and has 37 points in 43 games. Hopefully next year he can start the season in the bottom-six on a line with Friesen for the Wolves.

Archibald - Friesen - Duco??

He'll have Anthony,Tochkin, and Rai for company in Kalamazoo next year. I'm not sure about the status of Peter Andersson, but he could be with the K-Wings as well if Gillis has to honor that contract. Grenier and Freisen would likely be Kalamazoo bound as well, should Gillis decide to sign them!

He had his first professional hat trick today. He's starting to dominate the ECHL now. If all goes well, he'll be a full time AHLer next season.

In hindsight he is performing like a typical 4-7th round pick. Considering we got him for free that's not too shabby.

A comparable player is PC Labrie. Big, physical, scoring ability in junior as an overager, undrafted.

It took PC 5 years to make the nhl as a fourth liner. Archibald has higher offensive upside but isn't quite as truculent.

Archibald got a hat trick. His 3rd goal was really nice. Prab Rai also scored a nice penalty shot goal.

God I hope this guy can become a bottom-six guy for us down the road here. Chicago keeps churning out guys like Brouwer, Bickell, now Bollig, and somehow they always make a playoff impact.

Archie fading again.

0 goals, 3 assists in 8 playoff games with the K-Wings so far. He's a +1 though, despite being a -2 last game and has 20 shots on net.. just none have made it to the back.

Hopefully tonight he can get back on track as the K-Wings are 1 win away from being in the East Conf. finals (series is 3-1).

What went wrong with this guy? I remember watching him in the OHL and he was huge and had such great hands.. He went around the defenders like every game and he was so fun to watch. Was he just to slow for the ahl or something? I really thought he had so much potential.

just having a hard time adjusting to the bigger stronger competition like most powerforwards, and we had a full ahl team which couldn't accommodate his slow start. he should be on the wolves next year for sure.
