Brandon Pirri (concussion) resumed skating on Wednesday.

The Panthers had an off-ice conditioning session on Wednesday, so Pirri was the only one on the ice. "Good signs, he rode the bike two days in a row and he skated today for 30 minutes," coach Gerard Gallant said. "He'll skate again [Thursday] for 30 minutes. Everything is going in the right direction." Gallant hopes that Pirri will be able to travel with the team on their upcoming road trip.

Brandon Pirri (concussion) says he is feeling better.

Pirri was placed on the injured list on October 30th after he sustained a concussion in a game against Arizona. Pirri said he feels better and has amped up his cardio workouts.
Nov 9 - 9:35 AM

Brandon Pirri was placed on the injured list retroactive to October 30th.

Pirri sustained a concussion in the latter part of Thursday's 2-1 win over Arizona after being hit by Shane Doan. Too bad, as he was playing the very best hockey of his NHL career as of late. Pirri will miss at least the Panthers' next two games so place him on reserve without delay.
Nov 1 - 10:25 AM

Brandon Pirri has netted a goal in three straight games.

He scored a power-play goal in Thursday's 2-1 win over Arizona. Pirri logged a season-high 15:41 of ice time. He was a healthy scratch for the first four games of the season, but he's been excellent since Dave Bolland got hurt. "He's played great," coach Gerard Gallant said. "He's getting an opportunity to play and he wants to stay in the lineup, and scoring again, so he's a big player for us. He hit a goal post, plus a goal and had three or four other shots."
Oct 31 - 10:17 AM

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.
Oct 18 - 6:42 PM

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.
Oct 18 - 10:09 AM

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 13 - 7:44 AM

Brandon Pirri served as a healthy scratch in Florida's 3-2 overtime loss to Tampa Bay on Thursday.

Joining him in the press box to begin the 2014-15 season was forward Jimmy Hayes and defenseman Colby Robak.
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.
Sep 27 - 7:28 PM

Brandon Pirri has agreed to a two-year extension with the Florida Panthers.

The Panthers acquired Pirri from Chicago in March in exchange for a third round pick and a fifth round selection. He had 13 goals and 25 points in 49 games between the two teams last season.
Jul 16 - 1:52 PM

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.
