Biography

David ARCHIBALD

During the 1983-1984 season, ice hockey forward David “Dave” Archibald was a member of both British Columbia’s minor league Chilliwack Auctioneers and the Western Hockey League’s Portland Winter Hawks. He stayed with the latter team until 1987, when he was recruited by the National Hockey League’s Minnesota North Stars. After two and half years he was traded to the NHL’s New York Rangers, but that lasted only nineteen games before he was dropped, and he spent the remainder of the 1989-1990 season with the International Hockey League’s Flint Spirits. He then joined the Canadian men’s national ice hockey team where he found his greatest success, winning silver medals at the 1991 World Championships and the 1992 Winter Olympics. At the latter tournament, he played in eight games and scored seven goals. After brief stints with HC Bolzano of Italy and the Binghamton Rangers of the American Hockey League, he rejoined the NHL, this time with the Ottawa Senators, in 1992. By 1996, however, he was once again headed out of the league, as he split the 1995-1996 season with the Utah Grizzlies of the IHL. He was traded to the NHL’s New York Islanders in 1996, but played only seven games before flying out to Germany’s Frankfurt Lions to complete the year. His final three seasons were eclectic, and he suited up with the Grizzles (1998-2000), the IHL’s San Antonio Dragons (1997-1998), and Sweden’s Linkopings HC (1999-2000) prior to announcing his retirement in 2000. As of 2009 he works with the Chilliwack Bruins of the Western Hockey League as assistant coach, hockey operations advisor, and community liaison.
