Blackhawks' Brandon Pirri: Rejoins organization
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pirri was reacquired by the Blackhawks from the Golden Knights on Monday in a swap for Dylan Sikura.

Pirri was selected by Chicago with the 59th overall pick in the 2009 NHL Draft and spent parts of four seasons with the club. The 28-year-old also spent time with the Panthers, Ducks and Rangers, appearing in 275 NHL games (72 goals and 49 helpers). Pirri split time between the NHL and AHL last year but should be a candidate for a regular spot on the 23-man roster going forward.

Golden Knights' Brandon Pirri: Shifts to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pirri was demoted to AHL Chicago on Monday.

Pirri has bounced between the NHL and AHL levels all season. He's tallied two assists in 16 games with Vegas and 35 points in 38 AHL contests. The 28-year-old forward will be on the shortlist of call-ups in case of injury.

Golden Knights' Brandon Pirri: Bumped up to NHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pirri was recalled from AHL Chicago on Wednesday.

While he's only scored two points in 16 NHL games this season, Pirri has racked up 35 points in 38 AHL contests. The 28-year-old forward has been in the lineup for each of Vegas' last three games and could crack the lineup Thursday in Minnesota.

Golden Knights' Brandon Pirri: Sent to bus league
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Golden Knights reassigned Pirri to AHL Chicago on Tuesday.

Pirri's demotion indicates Mark Stone (lower body) may be nearing a return to action. The 28-year-old forward has only tallied two points in 16 appearances with the big club this campaign.

Golden Knights' Brandon Pirri: Called up Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pirri was recalled from AHL Chicago on Friday, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.

Pirri is back with the big club after he was sent down following Tuesday's game against the Devils. Expect the 28-year-old forward to feature in a third-line role.

Golden Knights' Brandon Pirri: Heading back to bus league
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pirri was sent down to AHL Chicago on Tuesday.

Pirri went scoreless over two stints with the Golden Knights during his latest call-up. He'll head to the minors for a couple days, but with the parent club a bit thin at forward, expect the 28-year-old forward to be recalled prior to Friday's road game against the Jets.

Golden Knights' Brandon Pirri: Back with Golden Knights
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pirri was recalled from AHL Rockford on Saturday, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.

Pirri has only managed an assist in 11 appearances at the top level this season. In the minors, he's been far more effective, bagging 35 points in 38 games with AHL Rockford. It's unlikely he gets enough opportunities in Vegas to warrant adding him in fantasy.

Golden Knights' Brandon Pirri: Lands on waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Golden Knights placed Pirri on waivers Saturday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

Pirri has been a healthy scratch in six of the last eight games, so the Golden Knights are hoping to sneak him through waivers to AHL Chicago. The 28-year-old demonstrated his scoring touch last year with 12 goals and six assists over 31 contests, but Pirri hasn't lit the lamp through 11 games this season.

Golden Knights' Brandon Pirri: Scratched yet again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pirri was a healthy scratch in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Capitals.

Pirri fired three shots on goal to complement a pair of hits in Thursday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Maple Leafs, but he was relegated to the press box Saturday for the fifth time in the last six games. It's still early, but Pirri's fantasy prospects are fading fast after he dialed up 12 goals and six helpers in just 31 games with the Golden Knights last season.

Golden Knights' Brandon Pirri: Not seeing much action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pirri saw a season-low 10:35 of ice time in Saturday's 3-0 win over the Penguins.

Pirri has appeared in six of Vegas' nine games to start the season. He's technically starting games on the third line, but it's rather disconcerting that the pure-scoring forward barely saw the ice in a commanding win. It's safe to disregard Pirri in most fantasy leagues until he earns a more prominent role.

Golden Knights' Brandon Pirri: Corrals assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pirri contributed an assist in Friday's 5-1 win over the Sharks.

Pirri's assist came on the first of two tallies by Tomas Nosek in the contest. The 6-foot forward has had trouble staying in the lineup throughout his career, never playing more than 60 games, but he has a pair of 24-point seasons to his credit and can provide some depth scoring. The 28-year-old is unlikely to be in consideration outside of deep fantasy formats.

Golden Knights' Brandon Pirri: Back for more with Vegas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pirri signed a two-year contract extension with the Golden Knights on Monday. The deal is worth $775,000 annually.

Pirri averaged an impressive 1.6 goals per 60 minutes of play with Vegas last season, with that pace amounting to 12 scores through 31 contests. There are more exciting fantasy options out there, but Pirri is a perennial power-play contributor for an upstart franchise, so look for him to round out your depth in fantasy games.

Golden Knights' Brandon Pirri: Lights lamp in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pirri scored a goal on three shots in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Kings.

The journeyman forward posted 18 points (12 goals, six helpers) in 31 games this year, in a campaign ravaged by injuries and inconsistent opportunities to play. Pirri finished the year with 82 shots and a plus-7 rating, but will likely continue to bounce in and out of the lineup in the playoffs.

Golden Knights' Brandon Pirri: Returns with apple
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pirri (lower body) had an assist, four shots and three hits while skating 14:26 in Monday's 3-1 win over the Oilers.

He's done well when he plays, with 17 points in 28 contests this year, but he's failed to impress coach Gerard Gallant enough to make himself a fixture in the lineup. His ice time Monday was right in line with his season average, so he should be good to go when called upon to end the regular season and going into the playoffs.

Golden Knights' Brandon Pirri: Returning Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pirri (lower body) is in the lineup against Edmonton on Sunday, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.

Pirri had missed five straight and 11 of the last 16 between injuries and healthy scratches. The 27-year-old has 16 points in 28 games this season and is expected to play on the third line with Cody Eakin and Alex Tuch.

Golden Knights' Brandon Pirri: Remains out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pirri will remain out of the lineup Saturday against the Sharks, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.

The Golden Knights' lone lineup change from Friday's game against the Wild comes on the blue line, so Pirri will continue to sit out. He'll hope to make his return in Monday's home meeting with Edmonton.

Golden Knights' Brandon Pirri: Absent from road trip
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pirri (lower body) didn't make the trip to Denver for Wednesday's game against the Avalanche, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Coach Gerard Gallant emphasized that he wants to avoid bumps and bruises turning into multi-week injuries, so he will keep Pirri and some of the other nicked up players out of commission in the short term to ensure they are healthy for the playoffs. It sounds like Gallant is in no rush to return Pirri to the lineup, so there's a chance his absence will extend further than Wednesday's contest.

Golden Knights' Brandon Pirri: Lower-body injury crops up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pirri will sit out Monday in St. Louis due to a lower-body injury, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.

Pirri's injury comes on the heels of a slump that's seen him record just one goal without an assist over his past eight appearances. He'll try to get back in there Wednesday in Colorado.

Golden Knights' Brandon Pirri: Snaps six-game goal drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pirri scored his 11th goal of the season in a 6-3 loss to the Flames on Sunday.

Since he last scored on Feb. 16, Pirri has seen himself scratched in three of Vegas' nine games. He has 11 goals and five assists in 27 appearances this season, but the inconsistent playing time makes it difficult to trust the forward for fantasy purposes.

Golden Knights' Brandon Pirri: Serving as spectactor
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pirri will be a healthy scratch when the Golden Knights play host to the Stars on Tuesday, Danny Webster of NHL.com reports.

Pirri is averaging 1.8 goals per 60 minutes this season, but Ryan Carpenter (undisclosed) will rejoin the lineup, and Vegas is also eager to get monumental trade acquisition Mark Stone versed in the system after he inked an eight-year deal. Pirri has been a trendy bargain play in DFS contests, but you'll need to search elsewhere for forward help on Tuesday's 11-game offering.
