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.

Predators' Kyle Turris: Sends power-play assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Turris managed a power-play helper in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Sabres.

Turris set up Craig Smith for the go-ahead goal at 13:31 of the third period. In his last seven games, Turris has a modest three points. Five of his 19 points this season have come with a man advantage. The 30-year-old has added 56 shots on goal and a minus-4 rating in 40 appearances, mostly in a bottom-six role.

Predators' Kyle Turris: Lone goal scorer Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Turris scored the lone goal in a 1-0 win versus Winnipeg on Sunday.

The former third overall draft pick scored his first goal since Dec. 3, giving Turris six goals and 18 points in 37 games this season. He's seen his ice time slip this season but remains part of Nashville's second power-play unit, giving Turris some fantasy value, though, he's a risky play most nights.

Predators' Kyle Turris: Bags assist Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Turris posted an assist, two blocked shots and two PIM in Sunday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Ducks.

The assist ended a five-game drought for Turris, who had previously posted a four-game point streak before that. The 30-year-old is up to 17 points, 52 shots on goal and a minus-4 rating through 34 contests.

Predators' Kyle Turris: Rediscovers scoring touch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Turris notched an assist for the third time in four games in Tuesday's 8-3 romp over the Islanders.

Don't look now, but Turris now has five points in seven games following a seven-game stint as a healthy scratch in late November. Prior to that, he had just two points in his previous 10 games, so the benching appears to have lit a fire under him. Enjoy the resurgence while it lasts.

Predators' Kyle Turris: Sends game into OT
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Turris scored a goal and added an assist with three shots in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss to Tampa Bay. He also won 12 of 16 faceoffs.

Turris forced overtime when he knotted the game on the power play midway through the third period. It was just the fifth goal of the season for the 30-year-old and only his second with the man advantage. It was also just his second multi-point game of the year. Turris had been a healthy scratch on more than one occasion in recent days, so Tuesday's two-point effort will help his cause to stay in the lineup.

Predators' Kyle Turris: Odd man out in Nashville
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Turris sat out his seventh consecutive game as a healthy scratch Saturday against the Panthers.

The Preds have a real problem on their hands with Turris, who is less than two years into the six-year, $36 million deal they signed him to back in November of 2017. At this point, the best course of option for the Preds would surely be a trade, but there are likely few teams willing to take a chance on a player with Turris' numbers (just nine points in 19 games this season, 23 points in 55 games last season). For the time being, unless GM David Poile can swing a creative deal, Turris is likely going to continue watching from the press box.

Predators' Kyle Turris: Gets benched
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Turris served as a healthy scratch for the second consecutive game Thursday against the Canucks.

Originally brought to Nashville two seasons ago to fill the second-line center role behind Ryan Johansen, Turris has been an utter disappointment with just 32 points in 74 games over the past two campaigns. Prior to his recent benching, he was seeing an average TOI of just 13:34 while centering the Preds' fourth line. Turris will find his way back into the lineup at some point, but either way, he shouldn't be on anyone's fantasy roster right now.

Predators' Kyle Turris: Firing blanks from fourth line
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Turris extended his current scoring drought to five games Saturday, skating just 10:59 in a 2-1 loss to the Rangers.

With the addition of Matt Duchene to the lineup this season, Turris has been relegated to centering the Preds' fourth line, resulting in a significant drop in ice time from last season (13:57 vs. 15:42). He now has just seven points in 14 games, which technically puts him on pace for a 40-point season. However, he'll need to snap out of his current funk pretty quickly or risk falling well short of that mark.

Predators' Kyle Turris: Serves up assist Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Turris notched an assist and four shots on goal in Tuesday's 6-1 win over the Ducks.

Turris has a four-game point streak going, with two goals and three helpers in that span. The 30-year-old center is up to seven points in nine contests this season, adding 18 shots on goal as well. He was deployed on the second line in Tuesday's contest, but he figures to bounce around the lineup throughout the season.

Predators' Kyle Turris: Forces OT with power-play snipe
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Turris scored a power-play goal on three shots and had two PIM in Saturday's 5-2 shootout loss versus Florida. He also won four of six faceoffs.

Turris scored his third goal of the season, finding the net from the right circle with 6:30 left in the third period to send the game into overtime. It was the third goal of the year for Turris and first on the power play. The 30-year-old was a three-time 30-goal scorer in his days with Ottawa, but had only seven in 55 games for the Preds last season. He has three goals and six points in eight games this season, so perhaps he can push for somewhere in the range of 20 goals and 40 points in 2019-20.

Predators' Kyle Turris: Bags assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Turris produced a helper in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Coyotes.

Turris has done rather well in a fourth-line role, with five points and 11 shots on goal through seven games. He'll offset some of the reduced offense by skating on the second power-play unit, but his current pace doesn't match his usage. The 30-year-old will likely be streaky for much of the year.

Predators' Kyle Turris: Two points Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Turris scored a goal and added a power-play assist in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Golden Knights.

Turris opened the scoring and also provided a helper on the final goal by Nick Bonino in the third period. The 30-year-old center had only 23 points in 55 games in 2018-19 after topping 40 points in four of the five previous seasons. Turris has had to settle for a bottom-six role with Matt Duchene in town, which could limit the former's ability to return to his previous level of production.

Predators' Kyle Turris: Notches helper Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Turris posted his first assist of the season Saturday against the Red Wings, however he centered the third line and skated just 12:13 in the 5-3 loss.

The Preds originally acquired Turris two seasons ago to be their second-line center behind Ryan Johansen. That didn't exactly worked out as planned, which forced the team to go out and land Matt Duchene this summer. That move all but relegates Turris to a bottom-six role this season, and his ice time will surely continue to suffer as a result. Prior to last season, you could pretty much pencil Turris in for 50 points every year, however 40 points this season seems like a huge stretch.

Predators' Kyle Turris: Garners assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Turris picked up an assist and two hits in Monday's 3-2 win over the Stars in Game 3.

Turris has only two helpers in 12 games since being healthy scratched twice in March. It was a rough year in general for the center, who accumulated only 23 points in 55 games, his worst production since his first full campaign in 2008-09. Injuries accounted for some of his troubles, but he hasn't been good lately and can be avoided for postseason fantasy usage.

Predators' Kyle Turris: Likely back in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Turris (coach's decision) is expected to play Tuesday against the Maple Leafs, Adam Vingan of The Athletic reports.

Turris has struggled since returning from injury, as he only has four points in 16 games. That led to him getting benched for two contests, likely in an attempt to get him back on track heading into the playoffs. It remains to be seen where he draws back into the lineup should he return, though as Colton Sissons played well in Turris' absence.

Predators' Kyle Turris: Sitting out again Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Turris (coach's decision) remains out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Sharks, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

Turris has clearly landed in the doghouse, as Saturday marks the second straight game he will be sent to the press box. The veteran pivot has also seen his production fall off the table recently, with him tallying just four points since he returned from a lower-body injury Feb. 6. Turris' next chance to rejoin the lineup arrives Tuesday against the Maple Leafs.
