Kyle Turris: Ending playing career
Turris will be a special advisor to the general manager for the BCHL's Coquitlam Express this year, signalling the end of the 33-year-old's playing career.
Turris' playing career appears to be over after 776 games across 14 years. He'll finish with 168 goals and 257 assists. He was a first-round pick of the Coyotes in 2007 and also saw time with the Senators, Predators and Oilers. His new path looks set to take him into a front-office role.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Kyle Turris: Elevated from minors
Turris was recalled from AHL Bakersfield on Monday.
Turris has played in just one NHL game since late January and has spent the last two months playing in the minors. The veteran's promotion comes as the Condors were eliminated from the Calder Cup playoffs. Even with Turris back on the roster, he will be hard-pressed to break into the lineup during the postseason.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Kyle Turris: Lands on waivers
Turris (undisclosed) was waived by Edmonton on Sunday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

Oilers' Kyle Turris: Back on injured reserve
Turris (undisclosed) was placed on long-term injured reserve Wednesday.
Turris came off of injured reserve last week and played in a 5-2 loss to the Canadiens on Saturday, though he logged just 4:41 of ice time. The 32-year-old's placement on LTIR indicates he'll have to miss 24 days and 10 games, so he won't be back until April 3 at the earliest. Considering he's played limited minutes, this won't affect most fantasy managers' plans, though this will likely make it impossible for Oilers to move him out ahead of the March 21 trade deadline....

Turris was placed on loan to the taxi squad Wednesday.
Turris takes over the spot on the taxi squad vacated by Ilya Konovalov, who was sent back to the AHL in a corresponding move.

Turris has cleared waivers, but he will be in the lineup Saturday versus the Flames, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports.

Oilers' Kyle Turris: Assists in back-to-back outings
Turris logged an assist in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to the Maple Leafs.
Turris helped out on Brendan Perlini's first-period marker. The assist was Turris' second in as many games. The 32-year-old forward is up to four points, 19 shots on net, 12 hits and a minus-5 rating in 21 contests. Even with Connor McDavid and Derek Ryan in the COVID-19 protocols, Turris remains in a fourth-line role on the wing, so he'll have limited appeal in fantasy.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Kyle Turris: Records helper in loss
Turris notched an assist and three shots on goal in Monday's 4-1 loss to the Rangers.
Turris snapped an eight-game point drought with the secondary helper on Ryan McLeod's tally. Through 20 games this season, Turris has just three points, 18 shots on net, 12 hits and a minus-6 rating.

Oilers' Kyle Turris: Draws assist Sunday
Turris produced an assist, two shots on goal and two hits in Sunday's 5-4 win over the Blues.
Turris earned the secondary helper on Ryan McLeod's tally in the second period. The 32-year-old Turris doesn't score like he used to, as he's managed just two points and nine shots on net through 11 contests. He's averaged 8:27 of ice time per game this year, and he's prone to an occasional trip to the press box as a healthy scratch, so fantasy managers need not roster him.... See More ... See Less
Oilers' Kyle Turris: Tallies in Monday's win
Turris scored a goal on two shots in Monday's 5-2 win over the Kraken.
Turris added some insurance in the third period as the Oilers' fourth line made a rare contribution to the offense. It was the first goal and point of the year for Turris, who has averaged under nine minutes of ice time per game. The veteran forward has added six shots, three hits and a minus-2 rating. With such a limited role, the Canadian isn't likely to make enough of an impact to warrant fantasy attention.... See More ... See Less

Turris will not be reassigned to AHL Bakersfield despite clearing waivers Monday, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports.
While Turris is poised to remain on the 23-man roster for Opening Night against Vancouver on Wednesday, the fact that he cleared waivers will allow the Oilers to bury his contract in the minors if needed. If Turris can maintain his place on the roster, he should fill a bottom-six role but could still be utilized with the man advantage considering he has 119 career power-play points.... See More ...
