Turris provided a goal and an assist in Thursday's 4-0 shutout of the Oilers.
It's worth noting that the former Senator only played 12:51 in this one. He took a puck to the face at practice Monday but played 17:11 Wednesday, so hopefully there's no lingering issue. Regardless, Turris has been on quite the scoring rip recently, rattling off eight points in his last five games and 11 in his last nine. He's only scored twice on nine total shots on goal in that span, though, so he's not quite as valuable in leagues that heavily favor shots.
Turris (face) will be in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Canucks.
Turris took a puck to the face during Monday's practice, but he was never in serious danger of missing Wednesday's match. The 28-year-old pivot, who has picked up six goals and 16 helpers in 25 games this campaign, will skate in his usual spot on the Predators' top line and second power-play unit against Vancouver.
Fortunately for fantasy owners, Turris and the Predators are off until Wednesday, which could give him some additional time to recover, depending on the nature of the injury. Since joining Nashville, the center has tallied 13 points in 14 outings and has been critical to helping the team overcome the absence of Ryan Johansen (upper body). The team should provide an update regarding Turris's status prior to puck drop.
Turris contributed a goal and an assist -- both on the power play -- in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Stars.
Turris now has 12 points in 13 games since coming over in a trade from Ottawa, with a whopping eight of those coming with the extra man. Three of Nashville's next four opponents (Vegas, Edmonton, Calgary) feature penalty kills that rank among the league's seven worst by percentage, so Turris has some golden opportunities to continue his power-play success coming up.
Turris collected two assists during Monday's 5-3 win over Boston.
The pivot is up to two goals and 10 points through 12 games since joining the Predators, which checks out as sound production considering he's probably still adjusting to his new surroundings. Turris has never been a high-end scorer, but fantasy owners can count on him as a secondary contributor. Additionally, the chemistry he's developed with Kevin Fiala and Craig Smith is encouraging.
