Panthers' Pirri With Assist In Debut On The Wing

News: Brandon Pirri notched an assist while playing his first game on the wing, in Wednesday's 1-0 win against the Hurricanes.
Analysis: The natural center was shifted to play on the right wing with Nick Bjugstad and Jonathan Huberdeau for Wednesday's game against Carolina. The good news for Brandon Pirri is he is playing on a line that features the two hottest players on the team right now in Bjugstad and Huberdeau, the bad news is we don't know how long it will last. When asked about the new line after the game, coach Gerard Gallant responded with "I loved [the newly formed line] in the first period; I didn't like it much the second and third because there were too many chances against them and they weren't skating the same". If that trend continues, Pirri could easily see himself playing on a bottom six line. For the time being, he should produce some points while playing with his new linemates.

Panthers' Pirri Back For Monday

News: Brandon Pirri (concussion) will return to the lineup Monday against the Wild, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: The center has been activated off IR, and Rocco Grimaldi has been sent back to AHL San Antonio to clear a roster spot. Brandon Pirri collected three goals in four games before getting injured early in the season.

Panthers' Pirri On Cusp Of Return

News: Brandon Pirri (concussion) participated in the Panthers' morning skate and could be a lineup option for Saturday's match with the Predators, Craig Davis of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Analysis: In addition to Brandon Pirri, fellow injured forwards Scottie Upshall and Sean Bergenheim took to the ice. Coach Gerard Gallant was reluctant to say whether any of those players would return to the lineup later in the evening, but Pirri and Upshall in particular seemed to be ready to go. No decision on the status of either player will likely be known until the Panthers take part in their pregame warmup. Unlike Upshall, Pirri would face the added complication of having to be activated from injured reserve, a move that would likely force the team to send Rocco Grimaldi back to AHL San Antonio.

Panthers' Pirri Takes Part In Morning Skate

News: Brandon Pirri (concussion) took part in Tuesday's optional morning skate, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Analysis: It would appear that Brandon Pirri is closing in on a return to the lineup, but his activation from injured reserve likely won't come in advance of Tuesday's game against the Kings. Pirri could be back later in the week if everything continues to go smoothly in his recovery from the concussion.

Panthers' Pirri Resumes Skating

News: Brandon Pirri (concussion) skated Wednesday morning, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Since Brandon Pirri has been sidelined for nearly two weeks with a concussion, he likely won't be ready to play until next week at the earliest. While resuming skating certainly represents progress, Pirri will probably need to log multiple full-contact practices before he's activated from injured reserve.

Panthers Place Pirri (Concussion) On IR

News: Brandon Pirri (concussion) was placed on injured reserve Friday, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Brandon Pirri was already ruled out for Saturday's game because of the concussion, but now will miss at least a week as a result. The Panthers called up Rocco Grimaldi and Vincent Trochek to replace Pirri and Dave Bolland (groin) on the roster while they are on IR.

Florida Places Pirri On Injured Reserve Friday

News: Brandon Pirri has been diagnosed with a concussion and has been placed on injured reserve, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Brandon Pirri was making noise for the Panthers having scored three goals in his last three games. The timing of this injury could not have been worse for Pirri considering he only got in the lineup due to an injury to David Bolland. He is considered to be out for at least one week so monitor his status closely.

Panthers' Pirri Has Concussion

News: Brandon Pirri has been diagnosed with a concussion and has been ruled out of Saturday's game against the Flyers, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Brandon Pirri provided a goal for the Panthers in their win over the Coyotes on Thursday, but was unable to escape with his health intact. He took a hard hit in the game that didn't result in his initial removal, but tests conducted afterward evidently confirmed the head injury. The Panthers are labeling Pirri as day-to-day for now, but since the timetable on concussions can often last several weeks, the center could land on IR if any symptoms persist.

Panthers' Pirri Held Out Of Practice Friday

News: Brandon Pirri (general soreness) wasn't present at Friday's practice, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Brandon Pirri took a hard hit in Thursday's win over the Coyotes and is likely just taking a maintenance day to recover from the soreness he's experiencing. The expectation is that he'll be available for Saturday's tilt with the Flyers, but his status likely won't be officially known until after the Panthers skate that morning.

Panthers' Pirri Scores In Third Straight Game

News: Brandon Pirri scored a game-tying power-play goal in the second period Thursday night against the Coyotes.
Analysis: The goal was Brandon Pirri's third in as many games. He also had four shots on goal and led the team with four hits. Pirri has been a nice surprise for Florida since getting into the lineup, and with few other Panthers showing much on offense, he's a lock to stay in there until his production slows down.

Pirri Scores Again For Panthers

News: Brandon Pirri scored his second goal of the season in a 2-1 OT loss to the Coyotes on Saturday.
Analysis: Brandon Pirri was a healthy scratch for the first four games of the season, but an injury to David Bolland made Florida insert him into the lineup. He has scored two goals in three games since getting the call and considering how Florida is having such trouble scoring, don't expect Pirri to come out of the lineup when Bolland returns from injury.

Panthers' Pirri Picks Up First Point Of Season

News: Brandon Pirri scored a goal on six shots in a 4-3 win over the Avs on Tuesday.
Analysis: After a productive stint in Florida last season, Brandon Pirri has been a healthy scratch in all but two games so far. He replaced Dave Bolland, who's still out with an injury, so he could win his way back into the lineup with more nights like these.

Panthers' Pirri Replaces Injured David Bolland

News: Brandon Pirri saw his first action of the season replacing injured David Bolland.
Analysis: Brandon Pirri did not contribute on the scoresheet but he did have three shots on goal while centring the third line between Sean Bergenheim and Thomas Fleischmann. The 23-year-old center scored seven goals and seven assists in only 21 games for the Panthers last season. Some believed he was a lock to make the starting roster this season, but he has had to wait until the fifth game to make an impression.

Brandon Pirri, C, FLA Panthers' Pirri Has Yet To Play

Brandon Pirri

Panthers' Pirri Has Yet To Play

News: Brandon Pirri has been a healthy scratch for each of the Panthers' first three games, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Brandon Pirri was generally thought to have an inside track to a regular role with the Panthers after totaling 14 points in 21 games with the team last season, but the July signings of Dave Bolland and Derek MacKenzie have pushed him down the depth chart. That being said, with the Panthers still in search of their first win, coach Gerard Gallant could choose to shake up his lines in advance of Friday's game with the Sabres, perhaps allowing Pirri to slot in for his season debut. If that comes to fruition, Pirri may need to stand out right away if he hopes to see the ice with more frequency.

Panthers Ink Pirri To Two-Year Contract

News: Brandon Pirri signed a two-year contract with the Panthers on Wednesday.
Analysis: Brandon Pirri played in 49 games between the Blackhawks and Panthers last season and recorded 25 points (13 goals and 12 assists). He registered 14 of those points after being acquired by the Panthers on March 2. The 23-year-old will look for another productive season in the NHL in 2014-15, and will likely slot in on the third line, as he did last season, barring a change to the roster.

Pirri Scores Again For Panthers

News: Brandon Pirri scored a goal for the fourth time in his last six games Thursday in a victory over Toronto.
Analysis: He's on a point-per-game pace over those six contests, perhaps foreshadowing what could be a big breakout next season. The talent is certainly there.

Pirri On Florida Scoresheet Again

News: Brandon Pirri grabbed an assist in Friday's 2-1 loss to Calgary, giving him a point in each of the last three games.
Analysis: Brandon Pirri has acclimated himself well to South Florida, with 10 points through 17 games in Sunrise. His name is definitely worth remembering in deep leagues next season, as he'll be one of several young, talented forwards on the Florida squad.

Panthers' Pirri Scores In Loss

News: Brandon Pirri scored his fifth goal of the season in the team's 4-2 loss to the Islanders, Tuesday night.
Analysis: Brandon Pirri scored for the second consecutive game and now has nine points in 16 games for the Cats. His stock has certainly risen since arriving in Sunrise and he will certainly be given an even greater opportunity to flourish with the team in the future.

Pirri Contributes Two More Points For Florida

News: Brandon Pirri notched his third two-point game in four contests Tuesday, scoring a goal and adding an assist in a win over San Jose.
Analysis: He's got seven points in his last five games after going scoreless in his first three contests with Florida, and he's doing it despite averaging less than 14 minutes of ice time per game. Brandon Pirri's future is very bright.

Pirri Warming For Panthers

News: Brandon Pirri scored a goal for the second straight game and added an assist in Thursday's 5-4 loss to Tampa Bay.
Analysis: After going scoreless in his first three games with Florida, Brandon Pirri's starting to put up points. Pay close attention, especially in keeper formats.

Pirri Collects First Point With Panthers

News: Brandon Pirri scored the Panthers' lone goal -- his first point in four games since being traded to Florida -- on the power play in Tuesday's loss to Phoenix.
Analysis: Brandon Pirri also saw dramatically more ice in this one, skating 17:05. With his offensive upside, that's a situation worth monitoring.

Brandon Pirri

Pirri To Center Panthers' Third Line

News: Brandon Pirri will center Jonathan Huberdeau and Jimmy Hayes on the third line Tuesday night in Boston, George Richards of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Analysis: Tuesday night's contest against the Bruins will be Brandon Pirri's first game for the Panthers after spending the last four years in the Blackhawks organization. This season is Pirri's first full one in the NHL, and he's recorded a modest 11 points in 28 games for the Hawks. Pirri has loads of upside as a front-line scorer and could be a savvy pickup down the stretch, as the Panthers are going to give him opportunities that he wasn't going to get in Chicago.

Panthers Acquire Pirri From Chicago

News: The Panthers have acquired Brandon Pirri from the Blackhawks in exchange for a third-round pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft and a fifth-round choice in 2016, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Brandon Pirri, who led the AHL with 75 points in 76 games last season, has recorded 13 points in 35 career NHL games (including 28 this season) to date. With the Panthers, the 2009 second-rounder should see added opportunities, though it's unclear what his role with the team will be out of the gate. In the words of Panthers GM Dale Tallon, "Pirri further adds to our depth at center along with Aleksander Barkov, Nick Bjugstad and Drew Shore."

Blackhawks' Pirri Demoted To AHL

News: Brandon Pirri was reassigned to AHL Rockford on Thursday, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.
Analysis: The Blackhawks acquired Peter Regin and Pierre-Marc Bouchard from the Islanders on Thursday, and Regin will report immediately to the 'Hawks, leaving Brandon Pirri as the odd man out. The Blackhawks going out of their way to add depth forwards indicates that the team isn't happy with the performance of Pirri, and possibly others.
