Edmonton Oilers

NHL CapHit: $1,650,000 Puckpedia Profile

The Oilers have signed Kyle Turris to a two-year deal worth $3.3 million ($1.65M AAV).

Turris had the final four years of his $6.0M AAV deal bought-out on Wednesday and signs a team-friendly deal to join the Oilers as their third line centre. Turris is an effective two-way centre that can provide some offence and is a nice complementary piece to Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl. A change of scenery will likely do Turris well and let's not forget that he averaged 23 goals and 33 assists (56 points) per 82 games from 2014-to-2018 while he was with the Senators.s

The Predators have placed Kyle Turris on unconditional waivers for the purpose of a buyout.

Turris had four years remaining at $6.0M AAV, so this is one of the largest buyouts in NHL history. The buyout will cost the Predators $2.0M against the cap for the next eight years, so it's actually saving them $4.0M AAV for the next four seasons. The Predators now have ≈$17.6M in cap space with newly acquired RFA Luke Kunin still to be signed.

Turris is expected to return to the Predators lineup on Tuesday.

Turris has been a healthy scratch for the last seven games but is expected to replace Daniel Carr in the lineup on Tuesday. Turris centred the second line in Monday's practice, so he'll go from healthy scratch to top-6 right away. Turris has played well in the top-6 but has obviously had a tough time in the bottom-6. Overall, he has nine points (4G / 5A) in 19 games this season.

The Predators have placed Kyle Turris (undisclosed) on IR.

Turris was forced to leave Frida’s game in St. Louis with an undisclosed injury, believed to have stemmed from a hit by Brayden Schenn. Turris was quickly moved to injured reserve, which usually isn’t a good sign. The Predators forward depth has taken a serious hit in November as Turris now joins fellow top-6 forward Viktor Arvidsson on IR.
