Teddy Purcell: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Purcell played well with Vinny Lecavalier last season, but he was outstanding with Steven Stamkos and Marty St. Louis. So much so that he recorded career bests in goals (24), assists (41) and points (65). So what's in store for this native of Newfoundland? He's now the Bolts' top left winger and a 70-plus point season is on tap. He probably won't replicate his goal-scoring prowess, but there are few better opportunities for supreme set-ups than with Stammer and St. Louis. Take advantage.
Purcell has finally arrived. The undrafted U.S. college stud finally put together the season (and postseason) that foreshadowed when he exploded for 83 points in just 67 games as an AHL rookie in the Kings system. He has buttery soft hands and the size to play in traffic. And last season, he demonstrated a delicious chemistry with two-way star Vinny Lecavalier. His six goals and 17 points in 18 playoff games smacks of another escalation to his game, and he should better his 51-point, 2010-11 regular-season output. He probably won't come cheap.
Purcell has talent but unfortunately for him, it'll be hard to show it off on a suddenly deep Bolts' roster. He's best-suited in the team's top-six but he'll be hard-pressed to earn time there unless the team moves someone out. And his defensive shortcomings make him a real risk on a checking line. He's a deep sleeper unless he sneaks onto Vinny Lecavalier's line again -- monitor the team's transactions before and turning camp to see what opportunity unfolds for the young man.
Purcell registered 38 points in 38 games in the AHL but just 16 points in 40 games for the Kings, despite getting some time on the team's top line. His fantasy output will be largely determined by his wingers as he's not a pure finisher. He doesn't have anything left to prove in the AHL but it remains to be seen just how much ice time, and in what role, he'll get with the Kings this season.
Purcell went undrafted, signed with the Kings and then proceeded to put up 83 points in the AHL in just 67 games. He got a quick 10-game stint with the Kings, collecting 3 points. He'll be given every chance to break camp with the Kings in a scoring role and could land on their second line with Alexander Frolov and Jarret Stoll.
