Oilers' Josh Archibald suspended one game for clipping Jets' Logan Stanley

Edmonton Oilers forward Josh Archibald gets called for the penalty after clipping Winnipeg Jets defenceman Logan Stanley.

Edmonton Oilers forward Josh Archibald has been suspended one game by the NHL's Department of Player Safety for a low-bridge hit on Winnipeg Jets defenceman Logan Stanley in Game 3 of their first-round Stanley Cup Playoff series.

The Department of Player Safety described the illegal hit as "clipping."

The play occurred with 8:49 left to play in the third period, when Archibald skated toward Stanley at the blue line and bent down to deliver a hit, causing his upper-body to collide with his opponent's knees. The call on the ice was a minor penalty for tripping.

Edmonton went on to blow a 4-1 lead, allowing Winnipeg to rise up to 3-0 in their first-round series.
