Purcell was released from his professional tryout agreement with Boston on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Though the University of Maine product struggled mightily last season -- suiting up in just 12 games and recording two assists for Los Angeles -- he's proven to be a talented scorer in the past, including a 24-goal, 65-point 2011-12 campaign. By all accounts Purcell had a strong camp with Boston, but couldn't beat out enough of the Bruins' young wingers to win a roster spot. At the very least, Purcell will likely spend 2017-18 in the AHL or overseas.

Purcell will attend Boston's training camp on a professional tryout agreement, Joe Haggerty of CSN New England reports.

EDGE Analysis

Purcell was a non-factor in limited action with the Kings last season, notching two assists in 12 games. The 32-year-old winger is nothing more than an organizational depth option for NHL clubs at this point in his career, so even if he's able to score a one-year deal with the Bruins in camp, he won't be relevant in fantasy circles in 2017-18.

Purcell cleared waivers and has been assigned to AHL Ontario, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.

EDGE Analysis

Apparently no other team in the league was in need of Purcell's services and so he will remain with the Kings' organization for now. The 31-year-old winger hasn't found his niche in Los Angeles just yet and likely won't get the chance until at least one of his teammates gets injured.

The Kings waived Purcell on Saturday, Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman reports.

EDGE Analysis

Purcell has been a healthy scratch for the Kings' last four games, so this move doesn't come as much of a surprise. It remains to be seen whether the veteran winger will be willing to report to AHL Ontario if he isn't claimed by another NHL club off waivers.

Purcell registered his first point of the season -- an assist -- during Friday's loss to Ottawa.

EDGE Analysis

Purcell has been limited to just seven games this season after missing time with an illness, so his point drought wasn't that long. However, the Kings are far from an offensive juggernaut (2.4 goals per game), and Purcell is likely past his prime. He's best left to deep leagues and viewed as a contrarian flier most nights in daily contests.

Purcell (illness) is in Thursday's lineup against Pittsburgh, Jon Rosen of Fox Sports West reports.

EDGE Analysis

After missing eight games, it's tough to imagine Purcell being back to top form against Pittsburgh. However, he will be on the second line of a banged up Kings team, so he will certainly have plenty of chances to make some plays in his return.

Purcell (illness), who missed his sixth straight game Sunday, remains day-to-day, the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Kings have been banged up to start the season and Purcell hasn't been able to get back into the lineup outside of the first two games of the season. It's hard to imagine he'll step back into a fantasy-relevant position immediately but he could work his way into a top-six role given the Kings' injury situation.

Purcell signed a one-year, $1.6 million contract with the Kings on Friday, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.

EDGE Analysis

Purcell was a member of the Oilers for most of the 2015-16 campaign, tallying 32 points (11 goals, 21 assists) over 61 games, before he was dealt to Florida in February, where he added 11 points (three goals, eight assists) over 15 games with the Panthers. The Kings aren't very deep at forward, so Purcell could conceivably slot into a top-six role with his new club in 2016-17.

Purcell wants to return to the Panthers next season, George Richards of The Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

With free agency upon him, Purcell is looking to lock in a spot with the Panthers in the upcoming 2016-17 season. The 30-year-old right winger was traded from the Oilers for a third-round pick in 2016 in late February. He tallied 30 points (10 goals, 20 assists) this season.

Purcell scored a goal and added an assist in 12:54 of ice time in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Hurricanes.

EDGE Analysis

Purcell put home the opening goal of the game on a perfectly executed three-on-two where he put home a pass from Jiri Hudler. The 30-year-old finishes the season with 14 goals and 28 assists. He'll be an important piece for the Panthers as they will look to make a deep playoff run.
