Brandon Pirri and Adam Clendening will be scratched against the Devils on Sunday.

This will be Pirri's second straight game on the pine. He has just two goals over his last 25 games. Unfortunately it would seem like his early season successes may not have been a way forward for him.

Brandon Pirri has not picked up a point in the seven games since Mika Zibanejad has been out of action.

It was thought that Pirri would get a much better opportunity to score and produce with Zibanejad injured, but he has yet to find the scoresheet even though his ice time has increased to 14:50 from 12:10. He has five goals and 10 points in 26 games.

Brandon Pirri pitched in two assists during New York's 5-2 win over Winnipeg on Sunday night.

Pirri has been streaky this season, but his production adds up to four goals and nine points in 13 games so far. He is well on his way to eclipsing his career high of 24 points.

Brandon Pirri scored a pair of goals in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Boston Bruins.

The Rangers got off to a rough start, as they let the Bruins score the first two goals of the game. But something seemed to click in the second period. Rick Nash got the Rangers on the board, Kevin Hayes tied the game and Pirri scored the go-ahead goal in the final minute of the middle frame. Pirri's second of the game extended the Rangers' lead to 4-2 in the third. Pirri has four goals and six points in seven games this season.

Brandon Pirri has three goals in his last two preseason games.

Pirri also registered an assist during Thursday's contest. He's in a fight to earn a third-line spot with the Rangers and his strong performance over his last couple of contests certainly makes things more interesting. Pirri had 14 goals and 29 points in 61 contests with the Florida Panthers and Anaheim Ducks last season.

Brandon Pirri scored two goals and an assist in Thursday's 3-1 win over the New Jersey Devils.

Pirri assisted on John Gilmour's power play goal early in the first period before adding one of his own just over six minutes later. He also scored a power play goal in the third period to give New York a 3-1 lead. The Rangers signed Pirri to an affordable one-year, $1.1 million contract and he'll be used as a versatile winger/center. His fantasy upside will be limited at best.

Brandon Pirri will be tested as a center in Thursday's preseason game.

Pirri will play alongside Nathan Gerbe and Pavel Buchnevich. "In my discussions with him (he said) he can play any position," Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said. "When I hear that from a player, it’s always a great thing. I love hearing that, that versatility …" he laughed, "as long as you can play any of those positions well." It might not last, but the preseason is a good time to experiment.

The New York Rangers signed Brandon Pirri to a one-year, $1.1 million contract.

The 25-year-old scored 22 goals in just 49 games two seasons ago, but his production dipped last year as he scored 14 goals and 29 points with Florida and Anaheim. In the right situation, Pirri might be able to hit the 20-goal mark.

Brandon Pirri is still available as an unrestricted free agent.

The Ducks didn't give him a qualifying offer and he hasn't found a new home yet. Pirri had 14 goals and 15 assists in 61 games for Florida and Anaheim last season.

Brandon Pirri did not get a qualifying offer from the Ducks.

That means he can become an unrestricted free agent on July 1. Pirri notched three goals and five points in nine outings with the Ducks after he was acquired from Florida. He had 22 goals in 49 games with the Panthers in 2014-15, which could attract some interest for him on the open market.

Brandon Pirri (upper body) has been skating and feels he is getting closer to being ready to return.

"You got to listen to the body with everything," said Pirri, who hasn't played since Apr. 1. "You don't want to go out there too soon because then you're doing a disservice to the team and yourself. It's frustrating but the trainers are doing a good job getting me back as soon as possible. Things are moving in the right direction for sure." He isn't expected to play in Game 6 against Nashville on Monday night, as he isn't with the team on the road. Pirri probably won't ready until Round 2, so the Ducks will have to finish off the Predators for him to return this postseason.

Brandon Pirri will miss at least Saturday's match with Colorado due to an upper body injury.

Brandon Pirri scored his first points for the Anaheim Ducks on Thursday.

It was a three point effort for the former Panther as he played in front of family and friends in his hometown of Toronto. "It was nice to show well in front of friends and family," said Pirri, who had 25 people at the game. "It’s good and we go to keep that going when we go to Ottawa (on Saturday).It was important. Just getting a goal takes a lot of weight off your back. At the same time, I know I got to lot to give and I don’t think I’ve shown that yet. There’s a confidence factor. It’s going up but at the same time I’ve got to believe in myself that I can hold the puck a little longer, do a little more work on the boards." Pirri had 22 goals last season in just 49 games so his added scoring will not hurt the Ducks come playoff time.
