Purcell netted a goal in Thursday's 8-2 loss to the Kings.

The Oilers were whipped handily in this one, but Purcell at least managed to come away with his third point in four games. While Purcell's scoring totals haven't tailed off dramatically from his 2013-14 output, the winger's minus-29 rating essentially negates most of the value he'd have in any fantasy format.

Purcell recorded a power-play assist in Monday's win over the Maple Leafs.

Purcell had been held off the score sheet over the previous five games, going minus-4 during that stretch. The move from Tampa Bay to Edmonton this season has been predictably toxic for Purcell, who is one pace to finish with fewer points and a sizable decline in his plus/minus rating from a year earlier.

Purcell scored the Oilers' only goal in a 2-1 loss to the Ducks on Saturday night.He's actually luke warm right now -- he has five points in his last eight games. But we're not ready to say snag him. He plays for the Oilers after all and the offensive promise he showed while with the Bolts is all but gone.

Purcell potted his eighth goal of the season and added an assist in Wednesday's 4-3 shootout triumph over the visiting Bruins.He also finished with an even rating in the game, something that only bears mentioning because of his ghastly minus-25 this year, which -- as a bit of trivia -- is technically the 818th worst out of 825 players this season. Nonetheless, Purcell has 26 points in 59 contests in his first year with the Oilers, and it's clear that life in Alberta hasn't been quite as nice as it was in Tampa, where he put up 51 and 65 points in his first two seasons with the club.

Purcell fired off a team-high seven shots and gathered 12 PIM in Saturday's 7-2 loss to the Senators.Purcell picked up a 10-minute misconduct penalty for abuse of an official with six minutes remaining, more than doubling his PIM total for the season. The move from Tampa Bay to Edmonton over the summer has been predictably detrimental for Purcell, who has managed only six goals, 24 points, and a minus-23 rating over 57 games.

Purcell skated on the top line alongside Jordan Eberle and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins at Friday's practice, Rob Tychkowski of the Edmonton Sun reports.

Purcell will likely skate on the top line Saturday in Toronto, but the change won't necessarily last for long. With just 22 points in 52 games, Purcell ranks fourth on the Oilers in scoring.

Purcell picked up an assist in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Sabres.

With 21 points (6G, 15A) Purcell is producing at a decent clip for the Oilers, especially given his team's collective struggles getting the puck behind goalies. Be cautious, however, as his minus-19 rating is a significant liability in certain league formats.

Purcell earned an assist in Friday's 5-2 win over the Blackhawks.

Purcell had been held off the score sheet since his three-point outburst Dec. 21. While it was nice to see break the slump, he saw his ice time drop to 13:52, marking his lowest total since November. With his production and ice time on the decline -- not to mention his horrid minus-19 rating -- it's hard to justify owning Purcell in most formats.

Purcell scored a goal and dished out a pair of assists in Sunday's 6-5 loss to the Stars.

Purcell snapped a three game drought without a point with his highest output of the season as the 29-year-old is up to 17 points (five goals) through 34 games. He'll likely end up somewhere around the 30-point barrier but should only be considered in deeper formats.

Purcell found the back of the net for his fourth goal of the season in Wednesday's loss to the Jets.

Purcell took advantage of a Jets turnover to give the Oilers a 2-1 lead in the third period, but it wouldn't hold up as the game-winner after Dustin Byfuglien was able to tie things up for the home squad with three minutes remaining. The 29-year-old has 11 points and a minus-14 rating over 26 games, numbers that probably won't make him worthy of a roster spot outside of deeper formats.
