Talent Analysis
Archer is a mobile, stay-at-home defenseman with good lateral movement. Uses his reach to his advantage. Particularly during 1 on 1 situations. He has shown the ability to improve from year to year.

Archer has a strong, right-handed shot, which makes him a guy who can play on the power play if necessary.
