Kyle Turris Keeps Rising to the Challenge

At the moment that Kyle Turris was selected as the third overall pick in the 2007 NHL Draft, he was projected to be a first line center. The process may not necessarily have been as smooth as prognosticators may have envisioned, but seven years later, Turris is pencilled in as the Ottawa Senators’ first line center.

Big new roles for Ottawa Senators' Kyle Turris

Around mid-September Kyle Turris is set to tackle a couple of heavy new responsibilities. He and wife Julie will become first-time parents, and he will report to his first NHL camp as a No. 1 centre. The latter could change, of course, if the Senators somehow manage to swing a trade for a prolific middle man between now and then. But as it stands, Turris is the primary candidate...

Kyle Turris Prepared To Be The #1 Center In Ottawa

from Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun, "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 Friday before teeing off at the Royal Ottawa. "I just tried to take that mentality and put it into the role I had this past year. ...
