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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
