Kyle Turris picked up three assists in a 6-0 win over the Calgary Flames on Friday night.

After starting the first two games of the new campaign without a point, Turris now has four points over his last two games. He is finishing up the last season of a five-year contract and appears hungry for a new deal to start the season. Look for the talented center to finish with close to 60 points this season.

Kyle Turris said he hasn't requested a trade and he isn't worried about contract talks with the Senators.

"I'm not going to get into talks because that's between my agent (Kurt Overhardt) and (Senators general manager) Pierre Dorion," said Turris. "I'm focused on playing hockey." Talks between the two sides have reportedly stalled because the two sides can't agree on the term of the deal. TSN's Darren Dreger said before Thursday's season opener that he expected Turris to be traded before the Feb. 26 deadline. There is still plenty of time to come to an agreement, but if the Senators decide to move Turris then there should be plenty of interested teams.

Kyle Turris found the back of the net in Ottawa’s 9-2 loss to the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday night.

Turris opened the scoring with a power play goal just 22 seconds into the game, but the Senators ended up allowing the next six goals. This is a huge year for Turris, as he’s scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season. The 28-year-old had 27 goals and 55 points in 78 games last season. It’s entirely possible that he reaches similar numbers this season.

Kyle Turris will get another exhibition game off Saturday, but he is slated to play in all three matches next week to prepare for the regular season.

"He'll play the last three. I've got too many centers to watch right now," said coach Guy Boucher. "At first, I thought we'd play him Saturday, but you know what? I've got too many guys. When you put together a lineup, you want to see the young guys and you want your guys to be ready. We're juggling. Saturday is a big one for the new guys and young guys to see what they've got." Ottawa isn't expected to have Derick Brassard and Colin White for the beginning of the season, so getting looks at other players is important and so is protecting the health of Turris.

Kyle Turris can become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the 2017-18 campaign.

Turris currently has a $3.5 million cap hit and he will be due for a significant raise. He has played well as the top center on the Senators, while racking up 265 points in 396 games in six seasons with the team. Turris led Ottawa with 27 goals last year and he recorded 55 points in 78 matches. If he did hit free agency then there's no doubt that there would be plenty of interested clubs.
Jul 31 - 8:35 AM

Kyle Turris had five shots and an assist in Ottawa's 2-1 win over Pittsburgh on Tuesday night.

He registered his fifth assist and ninth point of the playoffs to help the Senators avoid elimination at the hands of the Pittsburgh Penguins. Turris and Erik Karlsson had assists on a power-play goal by Bobby Ryan in the second period. The marker ended Ottawa's 0-for-29 drought during a two-man advantage.

The Ottawa Senators are struggling mightily on the power play right now.

Ottawa went 0-for-4 in Friday night's loss to Pittsburgh, which now puts them in an 0-for-25 slump in their last nine games. "I think everybody is frustrated," forward Kyle Turris said. "We haven’t capitalized on the power play, a couple of my passes were off and we weren’t connecting on plays that we needed to make to get our momentum going and to give ourselves an opportunity to capitalize. We’ve got to start with that, and it will eventually come. First we have to execute."
May 20 - 10:13 AM

Kyle Turris filled up the stat sheet Saturday night in the Senators' 5-4 OT win over the Rangers in Game 5 of their second round series.

Not only did Turris score the overtime-winning goal, he led all players with nine hits, was 15 for 23 in the faceoff dot, took three shots on goal and was a plus two for the evening. Is it any wonder that Turris was named the game's first star? Playing in Ottawa Turris doesn't get a lot of press, but the casual hockey fan should now be aware how good a player Turris really is.
May 7 - 8:21 AM

Kyle Turris scored the game-winning goal in Ottawa's 5-4 OT win in Game 5.

What a wacky game. The Rangers built up a 2-0 lead in the first period, but the Sens managed to score three unanswered goals to go ahead 3-2. New York scored the next two goals before former Ranger Derick Brassard tied up at four with less than 1:30 remaining in regulation. In the extra frame, it took Turris 6:28 seconds to find the back of the net. The Sens forward finished the night with a plus-2 rating, three shots on goal and nine hits in 24:58 of ice time. Turris is up to three goals and three assists in 11 games this postseason. The Senators are up 3-2 in the best-of-seven series. Ottawa will look to put the Rangers away in Game 6 at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday night.
May 6 - 6:33 PM

Kyle Turris scored Ottawa’s only goal in their 4-1 loss to the Rangers in Game 4.

It’s the second straight game that the Senators have managed to score just one goal against Henrik Lundqvist. In both instances, the goal was pretty meaningless. Turris’ goal at the 13:34 mark of the third period cut his team’s deficit to 4-1, but that’s as close as they’d come to making it a game. Turris is up to two goals and five points in 10 playoff games. The Senators were able to build up a 2-0 lead in the series, but they haven’t looked overly impressive in Games 3 and 4 of the series. It’ll be interesting to see what adjustments they make now that they’re heading back home for Game 5 on Saturday afternoon.
May 4 - 10:27 PM

Kyle Turris ended a nine-game goalless slump in Game 6 against Boston.

He notched just one goal and one assist in six playoff outings in Round 1, but insists that he is confident going into Ottawa's next series versus the New York Rangers.
Apr 27 - 9:20 AM

Kyle Turris has chipped in one assist in four postseason games against Boston.

Turris led the team with 27 goals during the regular season, but he hasn't found the back of the net yet in Ottawa's first-round series versus the Bruins. He has been credited with just one shot on goal in each of the last three matches. It's a good thing that the Senators hold a 3-1 series lead or else there would be plenty of heat on Turris to pick it up offensively.
Apr 21 - 9:21 AM

Kyle Turris will be a healthy scratch on Sunday versus the Islanders.

Turris will get the Senators' last game off to rest up for the playoffs. His regular season closes with 27 goals and 55 points along with 61 blocks in 78 games.
Apr 9 - 3:28 PM

Kyle Turris amassed one goal and two assists in Monday's 5-4 shootout loss to Detroit.

He scored his 27th goal and added his 27th assist during the third period to help Ottawa rally from a 4-2 deficit. Turris and the Senators will host the Red Wings on Tuesday night.
