Oilers' Kyle Turris: Reassigned to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Oilers demoted Turris to the taxi squad Wednesday, per CapFriendly.

Turris earned an emergency recall to the active roster for Tuesday's game, failing to record a fantasy-relevant stat across 11:28 of ice time. Turris' next chance to suit up is in Thursday's game against Vancouver, but it's unclear at this point whether he'll be back in the lineup for that contest.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Turris was promoted to the active roster under emergency conditions Tuesday.

Turris is expected to play in Tuesday's game versus the Canucks, replacing James Neal in a bottom-six role. Tuesday will mark Turris' first game since April 8.

Oilers' Kyle Turris: Assigned to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Turris was assigned to the taxi squad Saturday.

Turris won't play in Saturday's game versus the Flames. He's seemingly fallen out of favor due to poor play recently, so it could be a while before he gets back into the lineup.

Oilers' Kyle Turris: Hits waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Turris was waived by Edmonton on Friday, Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic reports.

This move will give the Oilers some roster flexibility ahead of Monday's trade deadline. Turris will likely either remain on the active roster or head to Edmonton's taxi squad if and when he passes through waivers unclaimed.

Oilers' Kyle Turris: Breaks long goal drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Turris scored a goal on his only shot and dished out three hits in Monday's 3-2 overtime win over Toronto.

In the Edmonton lineup for the first time in three weeks, Turris tied the game 80 seconds into the third period when Adam Larsson's shot deflected off the back of Turris' leg and into the net. It was just the second goal of the year for Turris and first since Jan. 24, snapping a 14-game dry spell for the 31-year-old. Turris was once a viable fantasy option but hasn't reached double-digits in goals since 2017-18 and has just four points in 21 games this season.

Oilers' Kyle Turris: Activated off non-roster list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Turris has been activated of Edmonton's non-roster list.

Turris has remained on the non-roster list since being removed from the NHL's COVID-19 protocols list March 16, but he'll be eligible to return to the Oilers' lineup Saturday against Toronto. He's picked up four points in 21 games this campaign.

Oilers' Kyle Turris: Out of protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Turris was activated from COVID-19 protocol Tuesday, Derek Van Diest of the Edmonton Sun reports.

Turris likely will rejoin the team in Calgary for Wednesday's game against the Flames. While he hasn't practiced in a week, Turris should be ready to slot into a bottom-six center role. The 31-year-old doesn't present much upside for fantasy players, as he's recorded just four points and 20 shots through 21 games.

Oilers' Kyle Turris: Added to non-roster list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Turris (COVID-19 protocols) was designated as a non-roster player Wednesday.

Teams generally don't place players on the non-roster list unless they're expected to miss extended time, so Turris could be facing a lengthy absence. The veteran forward has only picked up four points in 21 games this year, so most fantasy managers won't need to track his status.

Oilers' Kyle Turris: Added to protocols list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Turris was added to the NHL's COVID-19 protocols list Tuesday, Jason Gregor of reports.

Nothing's been made official, but at this point it's probably safe to assume Turris won't be available for Wednesday's game against Ottawa at a minimum. With Turris presumably unavailable, look for Dominik Kahun to rejoin the lineup against the Senators.

Oilers' Kyle Turris: Gathers helper in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Turris posted an assist in Monday's 3-2 win over the Senators.

Turris set up Leon Draisaitl for a goal in the second period, which stood as the game-winner. The 31-year-old Turris has played in the last three games and should stick in a third-line role as long as Josh Archibald (undisclosed) is out. Turris has four points, 20 shots on net and a minus-11 rating through 21 contests.

Oilers' Kyle Turris: Returns from healthy scratch stint
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Turris played 11:26 in Wednesday's 6-1 loss to the Maple Leafs.

Turris spent the last six games as a healthy scratch, as he has struggled to adapt in the Oilers' lineup. He's gone without a point in his last eight outings. With only a goal, two assists, a minus-10 rating and 17 shots on net in 19 appearances, the 31-year-old center is best left off of fantasy rosters.

Oilers' Kyle Turris: Nabs assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Turris provided an assist in Sunday's 8-5 win over the Senators.

Turris was able to make a small contribution in a high-scoring game, setting up the second of James Neal's tallies within the opening 10 minutes. The 31-year-old Turris now has three points, 11 shots on goal and a minus-9 rating through 11 appearances. Gaetan Haas made his season debut Sunday and looked solid defensively -- he could eventually challenge Turris for the third-line job, which would further diminish Turris' fantasy value.

Oilers' Kyle Turris: Registers helper Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Turris managed an assist and two PIM in Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Maple Leafs.

Turris set up Zack Kassian for the Oilers' third goal of the game. The 31-year-old Turris has just two points and a minus-9 rating through nine games. He's still operating as the third-line center, but head coach Dave Tippett may not tolerate the poor results for much longer. Devin Shore and Jujhar Khaira have shared the fourth-line center role, and Gaetan Haas is also an option on the taxi squad.

Oilers' Kyle Turris: Tallies first goal with Oilers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Turris scored a goal on two shots in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Jets.

It's been a rough start to Turris' Oilers career, as the goal was his first point in seven appearances. He's also posted an ugly minus-5 rating and just six hits and five blocked shots. Brought in to stabilize the third-line center role and add depth scoring, Turris has underwhelmed. He's safe to avoid in standard fantasy formats until he finds a consistent scoring touch again.

Oilers' Kyle Turris: Heading to Oil Country
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Turris signed a two-year, $3.3 million deal with the Oilers on Friday.

Fresh off a buyout by the Predators of his six-year, $36 million contract, Turris will now get a fresh start with Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl and Co. The 31-year-old will likely never reach the heights of his 64-point 2014-15 campaign with Ottawa -- or fulfill the expectations of his lofty third-overall draft pick status from 2007, for that matter -- but this could be a perfect fit for Turris. With 416 career points in 726 games, it's clear he knows how to get on the scoresheet, and any type of assignment with the aforementioned superstars above is sure to align him to improve upon last season's 31-point showing.

Kyle Turris: Set for buyout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Turris was designated for waivers by Nashville on Wednesday in order to buy out his contract, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports.

Buying out Turris' contract will save the Preds $4 million annually over the next four seasons and then will cost the club $2 million a year for another four years. With the departure of Nick Bonino via trade, Nashville will have a drastically different center complement next year, with Ryan Johansen and Matt Duchene will likely serve as the top-six centers.

Predators' Kyle Turris: Registers helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Turris notched an assist and two shots on goal in Monday's 8-3 loss to the Oilers.

The assist snapped a six-game dry spell for Turris. The 30-year-old center has 29 points, 81 shots and 22 PIM through 58 appearances this year. It hasn't been a great year for Turris, who has been mostly limited to a bottom-six role with the Predators. He's still got some value in deeper fantasy formats.

Predators' Kyle Turris: Bags late game-winner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Turris scored the game-winning goal on his first and only shot of the night in Sunday's 2-1 win over St. Louis.

Turris sniped a shot from the left faceoff circle to break a 1-1 deadlock with 2:12 left in regulation. It's been a difficult season for Turris, but the veteran forward has come alive as of late with nine points (three goals, six assists) in his last 10 games. He's found the net in two straight games and has totaled four points in those contests.

Predators' Kyle Turris: First star honors Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Turris notched a goal and two assists in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Blues and was voted the game's first star.

After spending a good chunk of his time centering the Preds' fourth line earlier in the season, Turris has since been bumped up to a scoring-line role, currently playing the wing on a line with Matt Duchene and Filip Forsberg. This puts him in a much better position to contribute offensively, which he's been doing a lot more of lately, with seven points in his past eight games.

Predators' Kyle Turris: One of each Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Turris netted a goal and served up a power-play assist in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Flames.

Turris put the Predators ahead with his goal at 11:43 of the first period. He then drew the secondary helper on Mikael Granlund's power-play tally in the second. Turris has a goal and five helpers over his last seven games. For the season, the 30-year-old has 24 points, eight of which have come with a man advantage.
