RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017-18

Subscribe now to see our 2017-18 outlook.

2016-17

Turris didn’t get to enjoy a third straight season of playing in all 82 contests, as his 2015-16 campaign was cut short by a high-ankle sprain. While only appearing in 57 games, the third overall pick of 2007 managed 13 goals, 17 assists, 32 PIM and a disappointing minus-15 rating (the worst amongst centers on the active roster). He wasn’t on pace to equal or surpass the previous year’s 64-point explosion, but as Turris enters his age-27 season, he's a solid bet to bounce back. Turris is solidified on the top line next to Zack Smith (or Mike Hoffman) and Mark Stone, and he has the convenience of working with the most prolific puck-distributing blueliner in the business, Erik Karlsson. Ottawa’s offensive talent is hard to question, and with the British Columbia native at the helm and new head coach Guy Boucher’s power-play-oriented mindset, 60 points could be his floor.

2015-16

It took Turris a while to live up to the expectations of a No. 3 overall pick, but he reached that level last year, growing his point total from 58 to 64 while settling in as the pivot and focal point of the Senators' top line. Ottawa's an up-and-coming team, and Turris -- along with 2015 breakout rookie Mark Stone -- is one of the biggest reasons. He's probably not the sort of guy you can expect to take another big production leap into the superstar-level point-per-game territory, but Turris should establish a rhythm as a reliable provider of approximately 60 points per campaign for years to come. In other words, come draft day, don't balk at paying the price he earned with last year's stats.

2014-15

Turris posted the best numbers of his young career last season, and could be primed for an even productive showing in 2014-15. The center was paired with newcomers Bobby Ryan and Clarke MacArthur to form the team's second line, and the trio showed instant chemistry. The line quickly became the Sens' most effective, and with all three players still under the age of 30, it could still develop into one of the league's elite scoring units. Turris will be just 25 years old at the beginning of the season, so it's reasonable to expect his production to increase from his marks of 26 goals and 32 assists and his team-high plus-22 rating last season. Considering that Jason Spezza was traded to the Stars in the offseason, Turris should center the team's top power-play unit as well, making him an even more valuable asset. On a team that will likely lack offensive firepower this season, Turris should be a bright spot.

2013-14

Turris turned in a decent season in 2013, posting 12 goals and 17 assists while playing all 48 games for the Senators. He's still just 23 years old, and was probably in over his head at times last season when he centered the top line in Jason Spezza's nearly season-long absence. There won't be as much pressure on him when he returns to the second line in 2013-14, and there's a good chance he could get to play with newly acquired Bobby Ryan. The Sens could potentially load the top line with Spezza, Ryan, and Milan Michalek, but it seems more logical to split up the firepower. Spezza and Michalek have been successful together before, and Ryan and Turris would make a young, potent combo that could take over the top line scoring duties in the future. The smart approach with Turris would be to pay attention to the Sens lines when training camp begins, because if Turris is indeed centering Ryan's line, Turris could be a lot more valuable than most fantasy owners think.

2012-13

Many in Ottawa were downright hostile to the fact that GM Bryan Murray traded for the disgruntled but talented center in December, sending highly-touted, but wildly inconsistent defensive prospect David Rundblad to the Coyotes in exchange for Turris. That bitterness was soon forgotten as Turris quickly established himself as a bonafide offensive force, racking up 14 points (5G, 9A) in his first 20 games with the Sens. He solidified Ottawa’s second line and developed great chemistry with Daniel Alfredsson to boot. Turris decided to remain in Ottawa for most of the offseason to train with strength and conditioning coach Chris Schwarz to improve his balance and strength. At only 22 years of age, Turris still has much room to improve and is not yet close to realizing his full potential. After being rushed and having his talents squandered in Phoenix, Turris’s career is finally back on track and he could have a breakout year for the Sens playing in head coach Paul MacLean’s up-tempo, attacking system. 20 goals is certainly within reach to go along with 30-40 assists; Turris will play on Ottawa’s second powerplay unit as well.

2011-12

Turris tallied 25 points (11 G, 14 A) in 65 games with the Coyotes in 2010-11. The first-round pick had a slow start to the season and spent some time in the AHL, but impressed coach Dave Tippett with his performance in the Coyotes' playoff series against the Red Wings. The former Badger will likely continue to play with the team's AHL affiliate, but don't be surprised to see him get more ice time with the big club in 2011-12.

2010-11

In 2009-10, Turris spent the entire season in San Antonio and that experience paid off handsomely for him. He was second in team scoring behind Brett MacLean as he recorded 63 points (24G 39A) and went a plus-6. His numbers were markedly different as compared to those he put up when he started as a Coyote during his rookie season. For 2010-11, he has the ability to make the NHL roster and potentially have a breakout year. He absorbed everything he could in the AHL and is determined now to put it to good use. True, the competition in the NHL is nothing like the AHL, but Turris could be the player that rises to the occasion.

2009-10

Turris had 20 points (8 G, 12 A) in his first full season in the NHL last year. Just two years removed from playing at the University of Wisconsin, Turris has a ton of potential, and Phoenix is pinning a lot of their hope for the future on the 20-year old. He has a phenomenal skill set, and he had games where his speed and skill simply wreaked havoc on opposing defenses. Typical of a young player just getting his legs under him, Turris also suffered from long stretches where you wouldn't even know he was on the ice. The ceiling on Turris is extremely high, and it'll be very interesting to see how much better he gets in 2009-2010.

2008-09

The Coyotes' No. 1 draft pick in 2007 did not disappoint the front office or his coaches. After tearing up the Canada vs. Russia Super Series, he found success in the University of Wisconsin hockey program. Towards the end of 2008, he was brought in by the Coyotes to gain much needed NHL experience. He has a huge upside and providing that he can adjust to the NHL and its grueling schedule, he should be a scoring threat for the upcoming season. Taking a wait and see approach would be a wise option with Turris, but everyone believes that he is ready to make the transition.

2006-07

When scouts use your name and Joe Sakic in the same sentence, you know you've done something right. Turris is one of the youngest in the 2007 draft class but he's already been tabbed as having the offensive prowess and uncanny vision of one Joltin Joe Sakic. Oh ya, there's also the comparison to Dany Heatley so this guy has serious talent. Right now, he's a skinny as a telephone pole (6' and 170 lbs) and still needs to prove himself against top talent (he played in the Junior A curcuit in Canada, one step below major junior), but he could be the best of the best in five or six years. He's a long way from making a fantasy impact -- he's off to the University of Wisconsin for 2007-2008.
