Brandon Pirri has stepped up for the Panthers during Dave Bolland's absence and it may be enough to keep him in the lineup.
He's been playing on the third line with Tomas Fleischmann and Jussi Jokinen. Pirri has two goals in three outings to go along with 10 shots. He could be moved to the wing when Bolland is able to return. Oct 29 - 10:57 AM

Brandon Pirri notched the only goal for the Panthers in their 2-1 overtime loss to the Coyotes on Saturday night.

Pirri now has two goals, the only ones of the year, in his last two games. The 23-year-old is trying to carve out a regular role in Florida, so he’s not playable yet in fantasy leagues. Tomas Fleischmann and Jussi Jokinen set up the goal. Nick Bjugstad led the team with five shots on goal.

Brandon Pirri made his season debut against the Washington Capitals on Saturday.

Pirri was inserted into the lineup because of an injury to Dave Bolland. Pirri played 13:00 minutes in the game and had three shots on goal. "I thought he was good," said head coach Gerrard Gallant of Pirri. "He’s a skill player and put two or three shots up and had a chance." He has no fantasy value going forward.

With Dave Bolland out, Brandon Pirri looks to get in the Florida Panthers' lineup against the Washington Capitals on Saturday.

Pirri actually enjoyed some solid moments with Florida (14 points in 21 games), but not to the extent to be particularly fantasy-relevant or even good enough to be an everyday player for the Panthers.

Look for Brandon Pirri to make his season debut Saturday night against Washington.

He had been a healthy scratch for the Panthers' first four games but should draw back in even if Dave Bolland, who suffered a lower-body injury Friday night, will be able to suit up. Pirri is not really a fantasy factor as he will not play on one of the Cats' top lines nor get significant power-play ice time.

Brandon Pirri is waiting for a chance to help the Panthers and thinks he could improve the power play.

"The power play is one of my strengths, but the coach has got to what he thinks is right," said Pirri. "It's my patience and you got to have some confidence in yourself, don't turn the puck over and shoot the puck to the net." He skated between Tomas Fleischmann and Brad Boyes at practice Sunday because Dave Bolland and Shawn Thornton had the day off. Pirri has been a healthy scratch in both of Florida's games to begin the 2014-15 campaign.

Oct 10 - 10:26 AM

Brandon Pirri scored for the Panthers in their 2-1 shootout loss to the Predators on Saturday.

Pirri is doing the most he can to make the game one roster. He had seven goals and 14 points with the Penthers in 21 games last season, with six and 11, respectively, in 28 games with the Blackhawks before getting dealt. Craig Smith scored the goal for the Predators who received strong goaltending from Carter Hutton (23 of 24 saves). Al Montoya made nine saves on 10 shots and Sam Brittain kicked away all 10 he faced.

Brandon Pirri celebrated his 23rd birthday Thursday.

He opened the scoring and won 10 of 16 faceoffs in a 4-2 win over Toronto. Pirri has notched seven goals and 13 points in 20 games with the Panthers. He seems like he'll be able to develop nicely in Florida.

Brandon Pirri produced a goal and added an assist in Florida's 3-2 victory against Dallas on Sunday.

Apr 7 - 10:47 AM

Brandon Pirri notched his 11th goal and 20th point of the season with a goal in Florida's 4-2 loss to the Islanders on Tuesday.

As with the vast majority of his Panthers' teammates, Pirri is not worthy of a fantasy roster spot. Tied for the Panthers' leading scorer is defenseman Brian Campbell with just 35 points. Pirri though has been much better with his new team in Florida than he was with the Blackhawks, as nine of his 20 points have come during his 16 games with the Panthers.
