Teddy Purcell has been tabbed as the right winger on a line with Connor McDavid and Taylor Hall.

The trio is expected to play in Edmonton on Monday night in preseason action against Calgary. Purcell produced 12 goals and 34 points in 82 games with the Oilers last season. Playing with McDavid and Hall during the regular season would give him a significant boost.
Sep 21 - 5:34 PM

Teddy Purcell ended his five-game goal skid with a power play marker in the second period of Thursday's 8-2 loss to the Kings.

It was a nice goal, too. Purcell floated to between the hash-marks and corralled an Anton Lander rebound with the end-point of his reach, and fired it through Jonathan Quick's legs all in one motion. Purcell now has 11 goals and 33 points this season, with five coming on the man advantage.
Apr 3 - 1:47 AM

Teddy Purcell had an assist in a 4-1 win against Colorado on Monday.

Purcell has recorded at least a point in back-to-back games for the first time since Dec. 3-9. He has 10 goals and 32 points in 76 contests in 2014-15.
Mar 31 - 9:49 AM

Teddy Purcell recorded an assist in a 4-1 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Teddy Purcell snapped a five-game point drought. He took a step back last season with 42 points in 81 contests and has regressed even further in 2014-15 by recording 29 points in 70 games.
Mar 17 - 11:05 AM

Teddy Purcell scored his ninth of the year in a 5-2 loss to the LA Kings on Tuesday.

It was Purcell's second goal in four games and third in six games as he is on a modest hot streak here. It is hard to find too much value on a Edmonton team that doesn't score a lot but Purcell has done what he can with nine goals and 26 points in 64 games this season.
Mar 4 - 12:57 AM

Teddy Purcell scored the lone goal for the Oilers on Saturday night in a 2-1 loss to the Ducks.

Purcell got his goal 28 seconds into the second period. With eight goals and 27 points, Purcell is not worth considering in fantasy leagues. Nail Yakupov and Derek Roy set up the goal.
Feb 21 - 9:55 PM

Teddy Purcell scored once and added an assist in the Bruins' 4-3 shootout win over Boston on Wednesday.

Purcell has seven goals and 19 assists for 26 points in 59 games. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Nail Yakupov netted the other goals while Jordan Eberle added two assists in the win.
Feb 19 - 2:49 AM

Teddy Purcell is without a goal in his last 10 games.

Purcell had seven shots on goal Saturday, including two on breakaways, but he can't find the back of the net. Purcell must be getting frustrated as he took an unsportsman-like conduct penalty and then added to it with a 10-minute misconduct for abuse of officials. He has only six goals and 24 points this season with a minus-23 rating and 22 penalty minutes. He's not exactly someone who will help your fantasy team.
Feb 15 - 7:19 AM

Teddy Purcell will play the wing alongside Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Jordan Eberle on Saturday.

Ilro Pakarinen got a one game audition with RNH and Eberle but will now move down to the fourth line with Anton Lander and Luke Gazdic. Purcell has only six goals and 22 points with a horrible minus-21 rating this season so it's hard to have any reason to put him in your lineup tonight unless you like playing your players against the Maple Leafs.
Feb 7 - 7:40 AM

Teddy Purcell had an assist in a 3-2 win against Buffalo.

Purcell has six goals and 21 points in 49 games this season. Don't expect him to do much more than maintain that pace for the remainder of the campaign.
Jan 30 - 10:49 AM

Teddy Purcell had a goal and two assists in Edmonton's 6-5 shootout loss on Sunday.

It was Purcell's first multi-point game since Nov. 7. He now has five goals and 17 points in 34 contests, which is a bit disappointing for him, especially when bundled with his minus-16 rating. He's capable of doing better, but we're not sure that he will, in part because the Oilers' offense as a whole has been just dreadful this season.

There's a chance that the Edmonton Oilers might give Teddy Purcell a shot alongside Taylor Hall and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins.

Purcell's numbers have been modest (four goals, 14 points, -15 and 45 SOG in 30 games), but he has enough skill to potentially produce solid results with such strong linemates. It's a situation to watch in deeper leagues, at least.
Sat, Dec 13, 2014 01:09:00 PM

Teddy Purcell scored a goal in a 3-2 overtime loss on Wednesday.

Purcell has four goals and 11 points in 26 contests in 2014-15. He's capable of doing moderately better than that from a points-per-game perspective, but when you factor in his horrid minus-14 rating, it becomes hard to recommend him in standard leagues.
Thu, Dec 4, 2014 09:26:00 AM

Teddy Purcell scored a goal in a 3-1 victory against the New York Rangers Sunday night.

Purcell now has two goals and eight points in 15 contests in 2014-15. He had 42 points in his final season with Tampa Bay and he'll probably end up with similar numbers in his first campaign with Edmonton.
