Kyle Turris C OTT 11 Days

Turris had a goal and an assist during Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to Vancouver.

Turris was so happy about snapping his 12-game goalless streak on Sunday that he decided to keep the good times rolling. We're still looking for a little more consistency, but Turris has plentiful talent and opportunity on the Sens' top line.

Turris and the Senators will not play Wednesday after their scheduled game against the Maple Leafs was postponed in light of the ongoing crisis in Ottawa, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

Multiple gunmen reportedly fired shots Wednesday morning in the downtown area of the Canadian capital, with one shooter dead and possibly one or more still at large. With several government buildings on lockdown, safety will understandably take greater precedence than proceeding with the game as scheduled. The NHL has yet to announce a make-up date for the postponed contest.

Turris led things off with a goal just over a minute into Thursday's game against the Predators.

After averaging 18:44 of action last season, Turris saw his ice time bumped up to 20:27 on Thursday, along with 6:06 on the power play. That trend figures to hold while Turris moves up to a top-line role this season, following the offseason trade of Jason Spezza to the Stars. If he suits up for close to an 82-game schedule, Turris shouldn't have too much difficulty surpassing last season's career-best marks of 26 goals and 32 assists.

Turris finished the preseason with no goals and three assists in four games played.

Turris posted the best stats of his career last season with 58 points and is set to have an equally productive season in 2014-15. Turris played in all 82 games for the first time in his career last season so if he is able to stay healthy, he should produce offensively on the first line and power play with Clarke MacArthur and Bobby Ryan.

Barring a trade by the Ottawa Senators, Kyle Turris is the primary candidate to fill the first-line, center's job left vacant by the departure of Jason Spezza.

Two seasons ago, when Spezza was injured, Turris was 22 and forced into the top spot. When Spezza returned in 2013-14, Turris was relieved. He said he enjoyed centring the second line and not having to see the opposition's best defensive players every shift. He responded with his best NHL season -- 26 goals, 32 assists, 58 points and a plus-22 rating -- and at least part of that had to do with the extra breathing space. Now Turris is better equipped for the more prominent posting. "I definitely think I've learned a lot over the past two years from those experiences, from being put into that role when Spezz was hurt, and seeing how hard the matchup is," Turris said. "I just tried to take that mentality and put it into the role I had this past year. This upcoming year, if I'm put into that role again, I think the experience I have now will work in my favor, to know what to expect and how better to prepare for it. If I get that opportunity I'll be excited about it."
