Julylights: July 6th, Turris Finishes Spezza's Dangle

Welcome to Julylights, a month long series taking the top plays of the '11-'12 season and giving them to you one a day, every day of the month of July. 


Hopefully Phoenix Coyotes fans don't get too mad about this post. But by now, they have to understand the talent that they missed out on when they lost Kyle Turris. Coyotes fans are probably just as mad as Ottawa Senators fans are happy about how everything turned out.

Turris, drafted 3rd overal by the Coyotes in '07, was supposed to be the future of a shaky organization. Instead he was rushed into the NHL and pushed things a little too far with his first contract negotiations. Ultimately resulting in Turris being traded to the Seantors.

Turris was welcomed with open arms, and recorded 12 goals and 29 points in 49 games with his new team. Turris was the young new face, and he recieved ice team with some of the biggest names in Ottawa, names like Jason Spezza and Daniel Alfredsson who have been apart of the organization for the for years.

Although Turris is the one to finish this play, this goal is all Spezza. After a nifty stop up on the sideboards, Spezza sent one Winnipeg defenseman fishing as he dangled around him and walked across the slot. After throwing the puck back at the net Turris buried the puck into the empty net.

Don't worry Phoenix, Turris is fitting in perfectly in Ottawa.
