He is turning into a must-own of late and he should be available as he is owned in only six percent of Yahoo pools. Take him while you can as he has some nice chemistry with his linemates.

Teddy Purcell had an assist in Edmonton's 4-2 loss to the St. Louis Blues on Thursday.

It was Purcell's first point in four games this season. His production has been on the decline in recent seasons to the point where he recorded just 34 points in 2014-15. He's got a chance to bounce back this season, but we recommend taking a wait-and-see approach with him as opposed to holding onto him in standard leagues.
