Kyle Turris has earned a point in each of Ottawa's first three games of the year.
He has picked up an assist in each of his last two outings after he scored a goal in the Senators' regular season opener. Turris helped set up a power-play goal by Clarke MacArthur on Monday to give Ottawa a 1-0 win over Florida. He's been playing well as the team's undisputed number one center in the early going, but his work on faceoffs has been abysmal. He has 20 wins on the draw and a 37 percent efficiency rating.

Kyle Turris scored the opening goal in Ottawa's 3-2 loss to Nashville on Thursday night, converting on a wrist shot just over the blueline that fooled Pekka Rinne.

Clarke MacArthur and Mark Borowiecki received assists on the goal from Turris, who notched 58 points and finished plus-22 for the Sens last season. The 25 year-old needs to prove that he can maintain those impressive stats on a consistent basis.

Kyle Turris doesn't think he needs to adjust his game as Ottawa's projected number one center.

"I don't think I'm going to adjust my game, maybe the preparation mentally you have to be a little stronger, outside of that I have to continue to play my game and improve my game," he said. "I think that will be alright." Turris feels lucky to have learned from Jason Spezza and he knows what to expect from handling the role in the past when Spezza was hurt. He also played between Clarke MacArthur and Bobby Ryan last season, which served primarily as the Senators' top unit.

Barring a trade by the Ottawa Senators, Kyle Turris is the primary candidate to fill the first-line, center's job left vacant by the departure of Jason Spezza.

Two seasons ago, when Spezza was injured, Turris was 22 and forced into the top spot. When Spezza returned in 2013-14, Turris was relieved. He said he enjoyed centering the second line and not having to see the opposition's best defensive players every shift. He responded with his best NHL season -- 26 goals, 32 assists, 58 points and a plus-22 rating -- and at least part of that had to do with the extra breathing space. Now Turris is better equipped for the more prominent posting. "I definitely think I've learned a lot over the past two years from those experiences, from being put into that role when Spezz was hurt, and seeing how hard the matchup is," Turris said. "I just tried to take that mentality and put it into the role I had this past year. This upcoming year, if I'm put into that role again, I think the experience I have now will work in my favor, to know what to expect and how better to prepare for it. If I get that opportunity I'll be excited about it."

The Senators have re-united Bobby Ryan,Kyle Turris and Clarke MacArthur on a line for Saturday night's contest against Montreal.

MacArthur is returning to the lineup after missing two games due to a hand injury and Ottawa coach Paul MacLean is hoping he will spark Turris and Ryan who are both slumping. The Sens' top line featuring Jason Spezza between Ales Hemsky and Milan Michalek, has been white hot, and MacLean is hoping the Turris unit will benefit from not playing against the opponents' top checking line.
