Did change of scenery make the difference for former King Teddy Purcell? - latimes.com

Murray said that in a case like this, "you always think maybe you could have done something different," but said he gave Purcell ample chances to produce. Purcell did have Anze Kopitar as his center sometimes and also played alongside Michal Handzus and Wayne Simmonds.

"He was on our power play every game," Murray said.

Out of the 13 Kings forwards who EVER got a regular shift on the power-play, Teddy Purcell was 12th in terms of power-play ice-time per game. The only player who got less ice-time per game was Oscar Moller. Purcell got 1:32 per game, on a team that had 5:59 power-play time per game. So, on average, he was out there about 25% of the time. That's not even "second-unit" minutes.
