Oilers' Purcell Picks Up Three Points In Loss

News: Teddy Purcell scored a goal and dished out a pair of assists in Sunday's 6-5 loss to the Stars.
Analysis: Teddy Purcell snapped a three game drought without a point with his highest output of the season as the 29-year-old is up to 17 points (five goals) through 34 games. He'll likely end up somewhere around the 30-point barrier but should only be considered in deeper formats.

Oilers' Purcell Nets Goal In Defeat

News: Teddy Purcell found the back of the net for his fourth goal of the season in Wednesday's loss to the Jets.
Analysis: Teddy Purcell took advantage of a Jets turnover to give the Oilers a 2-1 lead in the third period, but it wouldn't hold up as the game-winner after Dustin Byfuglien was able to tie things up for the home squad with three minutes remaining. The 29-year-old has 11 points and a minus-14 rating over 26 games, numbers that probably won't make him worthy of a roster spot outside of deeper formats.

Oilers' Purcell Sets Up Two Goals In Win

News: Teddy Purcell dished out a pair of assists in Friday's win over the Sabres.
Analysis: Teddy Purcell had gone six games without recording a point, before breaking out for a two-point outburst Friday. Skating on the third line, the 29-year-old has managed only four points in his last 12 games. While he does have seven points on the season, his limited ice time and minus-9 rating makes him only worth a look in deeper leagues.

Oilers' Purcell Adds Two Helpers

News: Teddy Purcell grabbed two assists in Wednesday's 3-2 victory over the Capitals.
Analysis: Teddy Purcell's two points came in relatively limited ice time (13:23), but lifted his total to five in seven games this year. If he can find just the right chemistry with one of the Oilers' young stars like Taylor Hall, Jordan Eberle or Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Purcell could be a sneaky fantasy commodity this season. Just don't count of much by way of plus-minus, if your league counts it.

Oilers' Purcell Cleared To Play Tuesday

News: Teddy Purcell (undisclosed) will be in the lineup Tuesday against the Kings, Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal reports.
Analysis: Teddy Purcell was unable to practice Monday after coach Dallas Eakins said the forward was "banged up" over the weekend in the loss to the Canucks, but he was apparently able to shake off his soreness during Tuesday's morning skate. Unfortunately for the Oilers, fellow injured winger Jordan Eberle was not able to heal up in time for the game with the Kings, leaving Purcell to fill his void on the Oilers' top line. Purcell has played well with a goal and two assists in his first two games with Edmonton, but he may be out of his element in matching up against the top trio of the physical Kings.

Oilers' Purcell Day-To-Day

News: Teddy Purcell (undisclosed) is considered day-to-day, but could play Tuesday against the Kings.
Analysis: Teddy Purcell is apparently dealing with an undisclosed minor injury. It didn't seem to limit him while he was picking up two assists in Saturday's shootout loss to the Canucks.

Teddy Purcell, RW, EDM Purcell Off To Strong Start With Oilers

Teddy Purcell

Purcell Off To Strong Start With Oilers

News: Teddy Purcell gathered two assists in Saturday's shootout loss to the Canucks.
Analysis: The Oilers have come away with a loss in their first two games, but it's through no fault of Teddy Purcell and his mates on the second power-play unit, who had a hand in both of the Oilers' goals on the man advantage. Purcell's ice time is down nearly two minutes from what he averaged a season ago with the Lightning, but he doesn't seem headed for a steep offensive regression due to the quality forward depth that he'll skate alongside most nights.

Oilers' Purcell Notches Goal In Team Debut

News: Teddy Purcell scored a first-period power-play goal in Thursday's loss to the Flames.
Analysis: Assuming a third-line role for the Oilers, Teddy Purcell managed to tie for the team lead with four shots on goal in his 15:09 of ice time. Coach Dallas Eakins appears content to use Eberle and Yakupov as the right wings of his top two lines, but Purcell should make up for his lower minutes count through his work on an Oilers' power-play unit that is brimming with talent.

Teddy Purcell

Oilers Trade For Purcell

News: The Oilers have acquired Teddy Purcell from the Lightning in exchange for Sam Gagner, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: The 6-3, 203-pound Teddy Purcell, who recorded 42 points and 14 penalty minutes in 81 games for Tampa Bay last season, bolsters the Oilers' right wing corps, with his fantasy value this coming season largely dependent on who he ends up with as linemates in Edmonton.

Purcell Scores Lone Goal For Tampa Bay

News: Teddy Purcell scored Tampa Bay's only goal in Friday's 4-1 loss to Montreal in Game 2 of their Atlantic Division semifinal series.
Analysis: Teddy Purcell had been rather quiet in the final third of the season with just two goals in 31 games (none in 30) but the goal came with Tampa Bay already losing 4-0. The Bolts will need a player like Purcell, who had some decent looks Friday, to get on the scoreboard if they're going to send the series back to Florida for Game 5.

Bolts' Purcell Hoping Playoffs Will Inspire Him

News: Teddy Purcell, who is currently toiling on Tampa's fourth line after a poor season, hopes the playoffs will boost his game, reports the Tampa Bay Times. "It's so much easier to get up for games in the playoffs," said Purcell.
Analysis: C'mon -- you're having trouble getting up for regular season games? You're a pro athlete making bushels of dollars compared to the rest of us. Now that we have that off our chest ... Teddy Purcell was a force in 2011 when he had 17 points in 18 playoff games. But that was when Vinny Lecavalier was in town and Teddy was getting time on the power play, too. He has just two goals in his last 31 games and they both came in a single game (March 20). If you believe in the Bolts, Purcell might be a cheap addition to your playoff roster.

Bolts' Purcell Returns Sunday

News: Teddy Purcell (illness) returned to the lineup for Sunday's regular-season finale against the Capitals.
Analysis: Teddy Purcell saw 19:50 of ice time in the contest, but didn't show much involvement offensively, logging just one shot attempt. Friday's game against the Jackets went down as the only contest Purcell missed this season. He totaled 12 goals and 30 assists over his 81 games.

Bolts' Purcell Out With Flu Friday

News: Teddy Purcell is dealing with a case of the flu and will not play Friday against the Blue Jackets, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: The Bolts announced both Teddy Purcell and Valtteri Filppula (lower body) as late scratches Friday, leaving the team a little bit thin at forward. Purcell should be considered questionable for Sunday's season finale against the Capitals.

Bolts' Purcell: Two Power-Play Helpers

News: Teddy Purcell picked up two power-play assists in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Sabres.
Analysis: He has two helpers in his last four games and six points in his last 12 games. But the Bolts' power play is starting to pick up and that spells opportunity for Teddy Purcell. He may be a solid sleeper going forward as a result.

Bolts' Purcell: First Goals In 20 Games

News: Teddy Purcell scored two goals in Thursday's win over Ottawa, snapping a 19-game goal drought.
Analysis: Ouch. He has just 12 goals and 40 points in 70 games this season. That's a far cry from the 41 that Teddy Purcell scored over two seasons (2010-11 and 2011-12), and just one more than he sniped in last year's shortened 48-game schedule. Purcell hasn't seized the opportunity given to him when Marty St. Louis left town. He's valuable for depth, but don't overly rely on him.

Bolts' Purcell: Big Fantasy Upgrade To Top Line?

News: Teddy Purcell will likely fill the empty spot on the right side of the top line now that Martin St. Louis has left town. He gets an immediate fantasy upgrade.
Analysis: Teddy Purcell's best year in Tampa came alongside stud center Vinny Lecavalier and now he will get Steven Stamkos as his pivot. Purcell can dish and Stammer can score -- this could turn into a huge opportunity for Purcell. Check your wire -- he could be lurking there.

Teddy Purcell

Bolts' Purcell In Major Slump

News: Teddy Purcell picked up an assist Sunday night in a loss to the Avalanche. He has just three assists in his last 11 games.
Analysis: It gets worse. He has just three goals in his last 37 games and his 35 points put him on pace for just 47 points, a tally that would be the lowest full-season mark of his NHL career. It seems his game left Tampa when Vinny Lecavalier did, too. He still has limited value in deep formats, but this lengthy slump is lowering that value.

Bolts' Purcell Not Producing

News: Teddy Purcell has 10 goals and 23 assists in 58 games this season.
Analysis: The winger is having a rather slow season after putting up 65 points in 2011-12. With just one point in the eight games leading up to the Olympic break, Teddy Purcell can be classified as an underachiever to this point.

Bolts' Purcell Gets 10th Goal Of Season

News: Teddy Purcell notched his 10th goal of the season in Sunday's win over Carolina. He has 10 points in his last 10 games.
Analysis: So, he's on pace to crest the 50-point mark this season, but we'd hoped for more. Despite his recent uptick in production, there's a chance he's a 50-point winger and not the 65-point guy he was beside Vinny Lecavalier in 2011-12. That changes the complexion of his fantasy value quite significantly.

Bolts' Purcell Gathers Two Points In Win

News: Teddy Purcell picked up a goal and assist in Saturday's win over the Flyers.
Analysis: Teddy Purcell has entered 2014 with a bang, gathering a goal and six assists over six games since the calendar flipped. The improved scoring numbers have done wonders for his plus/minus figure, as he's boosted that mark from zero to plus-7 during that span.

Teddy Purcell, RW, EDM Tampa's Purcell: Quiet Hot Streak

Teddy Purcell

Tampa's Purcell: Quiet Hot Streak

News: Teddy Purcell is quietly warming up again and is on a five-game, seven-point streak (all assists) after setting up two more goals on Tuesday.
Analysis: He might be on the wire -- his owners were jettisoning him like mad when he slumped earlier this season. He could help you if he's there. And if you held onto him, then good for you -- stick in the spurs and ride him hard.

Teddy Purcell

Tampa's Purcell: Two Assists In Loss

News: Teddy Purcell set up two goals in the Lightning's 4-3 loss to the Rangers on Sunday night.
Analysis: He remains on the lowest, full-season pace of his career and is clearly missing Steven Stamkos, whose presence would alleviate some of the intense checking Teddy Purcell is now seeing. He has four points (one goal, three assists) in his last five games, but it's not enough yet to convince us it's a pattern.

Teddy Purcell

Bolts' Purcell Scuffling

News: Teddy Purcell snapped a four-game scoring drought with a power-play assist in Tuesday's loss to Washington.
Analysis: He's still getting time on the power-play, but his star is falling -- he's slipping down the lineup and appears to be struggling with confidence. He's on pace for just 46 points, a tally that drives his down his fantasy value in a lot of formats.

Lightning's Purcell Tallies Three Points

News: Teddy Purcell lit the lamp twice and also picked up an assist Monday against the Rangers.
Analysis: Teddy Purcell has seven goals, and he could be on his way to a career high that category. However, he only has eight assists, giving him a fairly mediocre 15 points in 24 games.

Teddy Purcell, RW, EDM Bolts' Purcell Nets Winner

Teddy Purcell

Bolts' Purcell Nets Winner

News: Teddy Purcell netted the game winner in overtime Saturday night. It was his first goal in 10 games.
Analysis: The points have all but dried up for the Tedster, but perhaps the magnitude of this one -- an OT winner over the fabled Wings -- will light a fire under him. Until the fire is lit, we recommend parking his carcass on the pine.
