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.

3/20/2014

Teddy Purcell

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, RW, EDM Bolts' Purcell In Major Slump

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.

2/17/2014

Teddy Purcell

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.

1/19/2014

Teddy Purcell, RW, EDM Bolts' Purcell Gets 10th Goal Of Season

Teddy Purcell

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.

Teddy Purcell, RW, EDM Bolts' Purcell Gathers Two Points In Win

Teddy Purcell

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.

1/7/2014

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, RW, EDM Bolts' Purcell Scuffling

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.

Teddy Purcell

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.

11/4/2013

Teddy Purcell, RW, EDM Bolts' Purcell: One Point Over Last Eight Games

Teddy Purcell

Bolts' Purcell: One Point Over Last Eight Games

News: Teddy Purcell has one one assist and a minus-4 rating over his last eight games.
Analysis: At least he had 18 shots, but that's small consolation. Bench him until you see some activity, but be prepared to move fast to get him back in the lineup. He can deliver a lot in a short period of time.

Teddy Purcell, RW, EDM Bolts' Purcell Sets Up Three

Teddy Purcell

Bolts' Purcell Sets Up Three

News: Teddy Purcell set up three goals, one of which came on the power play, in Thursday's 7-2 win over Florida.
Analysis: He saw time alongside Marty St. Louis and Steven Stamkos, but also clicked with Valtteri Filppula. He's riding a three-game (five point) scoring streak. Make sure you take advantage.

Teddy Purcell

Purcell Nets PP Goal For Tampa

News: Teddy Purcell netted a power-play goal in Tuesday's overtime win over the Sabres. He now has two goals in his first three games.
Analysis: Is he a lock to reach 60 points this season? No, but he'll at least come close. There's real fantasy value here, particularly if he keeps scoring on the power play.

Teddy Purcell

Bolts' Purcell Returns To Ice

News: Teddy Purcell (illness) returned to practice Saturday, the Tampa Bay Times' Damian Cristodero reports.
Analysis: He was skating with the group who will be playing in Saturday's preseason game against Florida, so perhaps Teddy Purcell will suit up for that game after sitting out Friday night. Either way, it looks like his illness was just a one-day thing.

Teddy Purcell, RW, EDM

Teddy Purcell

Lightning's Purcell Ill

News: Coach Jon Cooper said Teddy Purcell is simply not feeling well and was sent to the doctor Friday, the Tampa Tribune's Erik Erlendsson reports.
Analysis: Cooper added that the move was simply precautionary, likely to keep him from getting any other players sick. Teddy Purcell will miss Friday's nights preseason game against St. Louis, but he should be back before long.

Lightnings' Purcell Injured

News: Teddy Purcell is day-to-day with an upper-body injury, the Tampa Tribune's Erik Erlendsson reports.
Analysis: That's the only information at this time, and it's unclear when Teddy Purcell even suffered the injury since he seemed to make it through Thursday's practice without any difficulty. Brett Connolly will replace Purcell in the lineup for Friday's preseason game against the Blues.

4/13/2013

Teddy Purcell, RW, EDM Bolts' Purcell: Three-Game Scoring Streak

Teddy Purcell

Bolts' Purcell: Three-Game Scoring Streak

News: Teddy Purcell stretched his point streak to three games and five points with a goal and an assist in Saturday's overtime loss to Washington. He has 34 points in 41 games.
Analysis: He helped linemates Tom Pyatt and Richard Panik to career nights. He's been a steady, secondary performer this season even if he gets shifted off a scoring line. Use him as such.

4/11/2013

Teddy Purcell, RW, EDM

Teddy Purcell

Bolts' Purcell Scores Twice

News: Teddy Purcell scored two power-play goals in Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Penguins.
Analysis: He tripled his power-play-goal total in this one and reached 10 tallies on the year. Teddy Purcell's been a steady offensive presence for the Lightning and fantasy owners alike over this season and the two preceding it.
