Oilers' Purcell Gets Goal

News: Teddy Purcell scored the Oilers' only goal in a 2-1 loss to the Ducks on Saturday night.
Analysis: He's actually luke warm right now -- he has five points in his last eight games. But we're not ready to say snag him. He plays for the Oilers after all and the offensive promise he showed while with the Bolts is all but gone.

Goal, Assist For Oilers' Purcell

News: Teddy Purcell potted his eighth goal of the season and added an assist in Wednesday's 4-3 shootout triumph over the visiting Bruins.
Analysis: He also finished with an even rating in the game, something that only bears mentioning because of his ghastly minus-25 this year, which -- as a bit of trivia -- is technically the 818th worst among 825 players this season. Nonetheless, Teddy Purcell has 26 points in 59 contests in his first year with the Oilers, and it's clear that life in Alberta hasn't been quite as nice as it was in Tampa, where he put up 51 and 65 points in his first two seasons with the Lightning.

Oilers' Purcell: 12 PIM, 7 SOG In Loss

News: Teddy Purcell fired off a team-high seven shots and gathered 12 PIM in Saturday's 7-2 loss to the Senators.
Analysis: Teddy Purcell picked up a 10-minute misconduct penalty for abuse of an official with six minutes remaining, more than doubling his PIM total for the season. The move from Tampa Bay to Edmonton over the summer has been predictably detrimental for Purcell, who has managed only six goals, 24 points, and a minus-23 rating over 57 games.

Oilers' Purcell Skating On Top Line At Practice

News: Teddy Purcell skated on the top line alongside Jordan Eberle and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins at Friday's practice, Rob Tychkowski of the Edmonton Sun reports.
Analysis: Teddy Purcell will likely skate on the top line Saturday in Toronto, but the change won't necessarily last for long. With just 22 points in 52 games, Purcell ranks fourth on the Oilers in scoring.

Teddy Purcell

Oilers' Purcell Collects Assist In Win

News: Teddy Purcell picked up an assist in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Sabres.
Analysis: With 21 points (6G, 15A), Teddy Purcell is producing at a decent clip for the Oilers, especially given his team's collective struggles getting the puck behind goalies. Be cautious, however, as his minus-19 rating is a significant liability in certain league formats.

Teddy Purcell

Oilers' Purcell Nabs Assist

News: Teddy Purcell earned an assist in Friday's 5-2 win over the Blackhawks.
Analysis: Teddy Purcell had been held off the score sheet since his three-point outburst Dec. 21. While it was nice to see him break the slump, he saw his ice time drop to 13:52, marking his lowest total since November. With his production and ice time on the decline -- not to mention his horrid minus-19 rating -- it's hard to justify owning Purcell in most formats.

Teddy Purcell

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.

Teddy Purcell

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.

Teddy Purcell

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.

Teddy Purcell

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.

Teddy Purcell

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.

Teddy Purcell

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.

Teddy Purcell

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.

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.

Teddy Purcell

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.

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.
