Purcell scored his fourth goal of the season, had an assist and fired six shots on goal in Saturday's loss to the Kings. Purcell has been producing of late, notching two goals and four points in his last four games. He logged 21:42 of ice time Saturday and is capable of being a difference maker when his minutes aren't being reduced. Purcell, who notched 65 points in 2011-12, now has eight points in 18 games on the season. He's a solid offensive contributor, but don't expect anything spectacular.
Purcell scored his second goal of the season and had an assist in Saturday's loss to Calgary. Purcell only has four points in 12 games this season skating in a third-line role. The 30-year-old can produce some offense in a bottom-six role, but his minus-8 rating certainly isn't appealing to fantasy goers. Considering he's basically scored 12 goals in each of his last three seasons, you pretty much know what you're getting with him.
Purcell has a goal and an assist on 20 shots with a minus-4 rating while averaging 16:02 of ice time over nine games so far this year. He's seeing almost three minutes a game on the power play, but hasn't produced anything on that front. While the shot rate is still there, Purcell's offensive production has been in decline for the last several seasons. With the potential for his ice time to decline upon the nearing return of Jordan Eberle (shoulder), things might not get a whole lot better.
Teddy Purcell will suit up for Thursday's exhibition against the Canucks.
