In his first year out of junior while playing for the IHL’s Port Huron Flags, Archie recorded 16 goals and 16 assists in 71 games and a total of 419 minutes in penalties.
In his first NHL game while playing for the Washington Capitals against the Philadelphia Flyers, his never back down attitude was a contributing factor in Washington accomplished something that they had never done against the Flyer’s – WIN!
He has a ton of great stories that I know you’re going to love.
