Turris (ankle) will return to the lineup Saturday against the Maple Leafs. He missed six games with an ankle injury, and his owners can now rest easy knowing he is back in the fold. Deploy him as usual Saturday.
Coach Dave Cameron indicated Friday that Turris (ankle) is considered a game-time decision for Saturday's contest against the Maple Leafs. Turris has been sidelined since Jan. 20 due to an ankle injury of unknown severity, but obviously one that was bad enough to cost him significant time. It appears Saturday could end his run of missed games, but even if it doesn't, the fact that he's being considered for the contest suggests the 26-year-old won't require much more time. Expect another update on his status prior to the contest, but it's possible a decision won't come until the team takes the ice for warmups.
Turris (ankle) skated before practice Wednesday, Steve Lloyd of TSN reports. Turris has been sidelined since Jan. 20 because of the lower-body issue, and while he skated prior to practice, he didn't take part in the team session. The Senators will continue to fill the gap in his absence, with nothing supporting the notion of a return to the lineup Thursday at this point.
Turris will not suit up against the Penguins on Tuesday, Seth Rorabaugh of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Turris was not expected to be in action after sitting out of Monday's practice. The center had failed to net a goal in his 15 outings prior to being injured and will now have to wait longer to end his drought. The 26-year-old has also struggled to produce on special teams, registering a meager two power-play helpers in his last 10 contests, despite averaging almost three minutes of ice time per game with the man advantage.
Turris (ankle) did not practice Monday, Gord Wilson of TSN 1200 reports. Turris has not played since Jan. 18 as he recovers from an ankle injury. At this point it is looking unlikely that he will suit up against the Penguins on Tuesday but more information about his status will likely come out prior to the game. The 26-year-old center has tallied 30 points through 46 contests for Ottawa this season.
