Unvaccinated Oilers forward Josh Archibald held out of camp due to “not feeling like he should be”

Cryptic words from Oilers head coach Dave Tippett.


Last week Edmonton Oilers fans discovered that one of the team's players, forward Josh Archibald, has declined to receive his COVID-19 vaccination and as a result he won't be permitted to cross the border and travel into the United States for games.

Now, Oilers head coach Dave Tippett is saying that "there's some concern" with Archibald as he's "not feeling like he should be." It's worth noting that Archibald is tested daily for COVID-19 and every test has come up negative.
