Playing career[edit]

After playing four seasons in the Western Hockey League for the Portland Winter Hawks, Archibald was drafted by the Minnesota North Stars in the first round, sixth overall, of the 1987 NHL Entry Draft.

Archibald returned to the NHL in the 1992–93 season with the Ottawa Senators. After four seasons with the Senators, Archibald played in seven games with the New York Islanders in the 1996–97 season. He also played in Germany's Deutsche Eishockey Liga that season with the Frankfurt Lions. He then spent three seasons in the IHL before finishing up his career in Sweden's Elitserien with Linköpings HC in the 1999–2000 season.
