  • Turris made his Predators debut Saturday against Pittsburgh, notching a goal and an assist in 21:38 of ice time. Turris slotted in as the team's second-line center and made an immediate impact. The 28-year-old earned first star honors and now has 11 points through 12 games, making him worth owning in most fantasy formats. He's slotted on the team's second power-play unit right now and is a capable 20-goal-scorer when healthy, so grab him if he's available. Changes of scenery can work wonders for a player's fantasy value, so keep an eye on him.

  • Predators' Kyle Turris: Joins team for practice
    By RotoWire Staff

    Turris practiced with his new team Thursday after getting his work visa squared away, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports. Turris is a near lock for a top-six role with the Predators, giving them a one-two punch at center (Ryan Johansen) that will challenge opposing teams. The club will get even more stacked down the middle once it gets back Nick Bonino (leg), who has missed the last 10 contests. Prior to being traded, Turris was stuck in a bit of a rut with a four-game goalless streak that he will look to end Saturday against the Penguins.

  • Turris is dealing with visa issues after being traded from Ottawa on Sunday and doesn't anticipate being eligible to play Tuesday against Columbus, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports. The former Senator requires a U.S. work permit in order to suit up for his new team, which can a few days to acquire. Luckily, after Tuesday's game Nashville doesn't play again until Saturday against Pittsburgh, and it's fully expected that Turris will be ready to play by then. Turris is expected to serve as the Preds' No. 2 center behind Ryan Johansen, but there will be more clarity regarding his role once he joins the team.

  • Predators' Kyle Turris: Traded to Nashville
    By RotoWire Staff

    Turris was traded from Ottawa to Nashville on Sunday, with Matt Duchene of the Avalanche joining the Senators as part of the three-team deal. Turris also signed a six-year, $36 million deal with the Predators, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports. Nashville has bolstered its centers in the top-six forward core, as Turris and Ryan Johansen are now both locked in long term. Turris has shown he can be a strong two-way player, as he's already recorded nine points in 11 games to start the year after posting 55 in 78 last season. The 28-year-old will likely slot into the second line with Filip Forsberg and Craig Smith and receive plenty of power-play time with his new team.

  • Senators' Kyle Turris: Ready to return
    By RotoWire Staff

    Turris (illness) has declared himself fit to play in Thursday's home game against the Red Wings, Ian Mendes of TSN 1200 Ottawa reports. The Senators will gladly accept this positive development, as the team has lost three of its past four games and was shellacked 8-3 by the Canadiens the last time out. Turris has provided his fantasy owners with three goals and five assists through nine games this season, so he'll be well worth reactivating in virtual settings.
