Canes' J. Staal Hoping To Return Before New Year

News: Coach Bill Peters said after Tuesday's morning skate that he's hopeful Jordan Staal (leg) will be ready to play by the end of December, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Jordan Staal resumed skating last week and seems to be increasing his activity level each day, but Peters said the center needs to take more contact and participate in battle drills before his activation will be forthcoming. He'll continue to skate with the team in a light capacity until he notices some more healing with his fractured fibula.

Canes' J. Staal To Join Team For Pregame Skate

News: Jordan Staal (leg) will join the Hurricanes for their pregame skate Thursday, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Jordan Staal, who skated on his own prior to Wednesday's practice, will wear a non-contact jersey during Thursday's skate. He's still probably at least a couple weeks away from returning from injured reserve due to the extensive time he's already missed due to the broken leg, but his recovery seems to be trending positively.

Canes' J. Staal Making Progress

News: Jordan Staal (leg) has shed his cast and is expected to begin off-ice workouts soon, NBC Sports reports.
Analysis: As he's surely well out of hockey shape thanks to his two-month stint in the cast, Jordan Staal will likely need a significant amount of recovery time. He appears to be on track for a return sometime in January.

Canes Place Jordan Staal (Broken Leg) On IR

News: Jordan Staal (broken leg) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Jordan Staal is still expected to miss three to four months after fracturing his right fibula in a preseason game Sept. 23. An early return around late December would be the best-case scenario here, however a more realistic expectation would be sometime in mid- to late-January.

Canes' J. Staal Will Have Surgery, Miss 3-4 Months

News: Jordan Staal will undergo surgery to repair a fractured fibula in his right leg and is expected to miss three-to-four months.
Analysis: The Hurricanes were bracing for the worst after Jordan Staal broke his leg in Tuesday's exhibition game, and it appears they've received just that with the news that surgery will be necessary for the center. Staal will undergo the procedure on Friday, which will likely keep him out until around the All-Star break. Despite Staal's dropoff in production last season with the Hurricanes, his absence still represents a huge hit to the team's depth down the middle.

No Decision On Surgery Yet For Canes' J. Staal

News: It has yet to be determined whether or not Jordan Staal will require surgery on his broken leg, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Jordan Staal was set to undergo a thorough evaluation by team doctors Thursday, but the results of those tests may not be available for a few days. If the Hurricanes do decide to go the surgery route, Staal would likely be looking at a long-term recovery period, which could potentially stretch into the second half of the season. Second-year forward Elias Lindholm is expected to receive the first opportunity to fill in for Staal as the Hurricanes' second-line center.

Evaluation On Tap For Canes' Staal On Thursday

News: Jordan Staal (broken leg) will return to Raleigh and receive an evaluation from team doctors Thursday.
Analysis: The evaluation should clarify a firmer timetable for Jordan Staal's recovery, but it seems likely that he could miss multiple months after fracturing a bone in the lower half of his right leg Tuesday night. Staal was looking to rebound after he posted only 15 goals and 25 assists in 82 games last season, but the significant injury will hinder his chances of reemerging as a 50-point scorer.

Canes' Staal Suffers Broken Leg, Out Indefinitely

News: Jordan Staal sustained a broken bone in the lower part of his right leg during Tuesday's exhibition at Buffalo, Stephen Whyno of the Canadian Press reports.
Analysis: A timetable has not been released regarding Jordan Staal's return to the ice, but it would seem likely that he'll miss significant time. He needed crutches to move around after Tuesday's preseason contest, and fantasy owners will want to monitor his status in the coming days for a clearer picture regarding how much time he'll miss.

Canes' Staal Seen With Crutches After Exhibition

News: Jordan Staal (leg) was spotted using crutches while moving around in the locker room after Tuesday's preseason contest, Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Jordan Staal also underwent X-rays after the game, the results of which likely won't be available until Wednesday. While it's possible the Hurricanes just had Staal use the crutches so as not to aggravate his leg injury any further, the scene certainly warrants some concern. There should be more clarity regarding a possible return timetable by the end of the week, but things certainly don't look promising for Staal.

Canes' J. Staal Suffers Apparent Leg Injury

News: Jordan Staal suffered an apparent right leg injury late in Tuesday's exhibition loss against the Sabres and required assistance off the ice, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: The Hurricanes fell to 0-2 in the preseason after Tuesday's defeat, but the health of their second-line center is obviously of graver concern for the club. According to Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News, Jordan Staal wasn't able to put any weight on his leg as he exited the ice following a hit from the Sabres' Josh Gorges. The team will reevaluate him after the game, but there seems to be legitimate fear Staal may have suffered a significant injury.

New Linemates For Canes' Staal Early In Camp

News: Jordan Staal has been skating with Alexander Semin and Jiri Tlusty so far in training camp, reports the Raleigh News & Observer.
Analysis: Although it's early and new coach Bill Peters will likely experiment with various line combinations before the start of the regular season, Jordan Staal could really benefit from inheriting his brother Eric's linemates from the last two seasons. Semin and Tlusty are two reliable, scoring wingers who are used to playing on the same line together, something Staal has often lacked since joining the Canes two seasons ago. One thing is for certain - Staal will once again open the season as the Canes' second-line center, so it's really just a matter of who will be his wingers at this point - likely some combination of Semin, Tlusty, Jeff Skinner and Elias Lindholm.

Hurricanes' J. Staal Picks Up Two Assists

News: Jordan Staal assisted on two Hurricanes goals in Tuesday's 5-4 loss to the Islanders.
Analysis: Bumped back to the second line Tuesday rather than atop the first line alongside brother Eric, Jordan Staal didn't seem to be too affected by the reshuffling. Staal has done his best to salvage a disappointing season with a huge March, as he's totaled 12 points in 13 contests this month.

Canes' J. Staal Extends Point Streak To Five

News: Jordan Staal set up the Canes' only goal Saturday as Carolina dropped a 5-1 road game to the Bruins.
Analysis: All the second-youngest Jordan Staal had to do for his 35th point was win the draw back to Alex Semin, who snapped a tricky wrister past the Bruins' Chad Johnson. Things haven't gone as planned this season for Jordan in Raleigh, but he has come out of the woodwork to record points in his last five. He'll need to average at least a point in each of the last 15 games to match his career high of 50 points set with Pittsburgh. Will he do it? Probably not, but he sure looks comfortable between Semin and Jiri Tlusty and is a decent gamble to help supplement your scoring.

J. Staal: Two More Points, Four-Game Streak

News: Jordan Staal handed out a pair of helpers in Thursday's win over Buffalo.
Analysis: He's got a four-game point streak going, with eight points and a plus-5 rating over that span. In short, Jordan Staal's hot all of a sudden, and after how disappointing he's been this year, he could yet be languishing on the waiver wire in shallower formats. Take a look.

J. Staal Heating Up For 'Canes

News: Jordan Staal scored a goal, tacked on an assist and went plus-2 in Tuesday's victory over the Rangers.
Analysis: He's on a nice little three-game run, netting five points and a plus-4 rating in that span. Of course, Jordan Staal had gone six straight without a point before that. His scoring's been highly inconsistent all year long.

Canes' J. Staal: Glimmer Of Offense?

News: Jordan Staal had two assists Saturday in a loss to New Jersey. He now has three points in his last two games after picking up just three in his previous 18 games.
Analysis: Is this the turnaround we've all be waiting for? No clue, but we sure hope so -- 30 points in 64 games isn't exactly what you bargained for when you drafted him. But make sure you're rolling him right now -- any productivity is good productivity at this point.

Canes' Staal Scores First Goal In 12 Games

News: Jordan Staal scored his 12th goal of the season during Friday's loss to the Rangers.
Analysis: The goal was Jordan Staal's first in 12 games and just his third point in that span. He was ice cold just before the Olympic break and equally cold coming out of it, so hopefully this is a sign that he is ready to emerge from his slump. He now has 12 goals and 16 assists over 63 games this season.

Jordan Staal, C, CAR Canes' Staal Stone Cold At Olympic Break

Canes' Staal Stone Cold At Olympic Break

News: Offensively speaking, Jordan Staal is currently enduring one of the worst seasons of his career. With just 27 points in 57 games, he's on track for just 39 points, his lowest output since 2007-08, his second year in the league.
Analysis: Following a four-point night (1G, 3A) Jan. 9 against the Maple Leafs, any fantasy owner who thought Jordan Staal was about to go on a prolonged scoring run has been sorely mistaken, as Staal has registered just three points in 13 games since that night. Furthermore, Staal went into the Olympic break with just a single shot on goal in his last four games - a telling sign of just how disengaged he has been lately. Hopefully, the current break in the NHL schedule will allow Staal a chance to recharge his batteries and come back with a little more spring in his step. Once play resumes, be prepared to bench him in favor of a more consistent scoring option if his slump shows any signs of continuing.

Staal Grabs Assist In Canes' Win

News: Jordan Staal posted an assist in Friday's win over St. Louis, giving him two points in the last three games.
Analysis: Jordan Staal had been quiet since grabbing four points in a game over three weeks ago, but he's been producing a bit the last several tilts. Look for him to contribute as the Canes attempt to surge up the standings, hopefully more than less considering what Carolina is paying him. He's a good buy-low candidate at this point.

Hurricanes' J. Staal Pops Off Four Points

News: Jordan Staal scored a shorthanded goal, handed out three assists and went plus-2 in Thursday's win over the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: It was easily the biggest game of the year for Jordan Staal, who hadn't previously managed more than two points in a game on the season. Though he hasn't put together any scoring streak longer than two games this year, Staal's been on the scoresheet consistently lately, as he's found the scoresheet in seven of his last 11 contests, totaling three goals and 11 points in that span.

Canes' Staal Assists In Win Over Habs

News: Jordan Staal posted an assist during the Hurricanes' 5-4 OT win over the Canadiens on Tuesday. He also skated a season-high 23:15 including 5:07 on the power play.
Analysis: After getting off to a horrific start this season with just six points in his first 20 games, Jordan Staal has since turned things around nicely with 13 points in his last 20. Staal and his older brother Eric make a nice 1-2 punch down the middle for the Canes with Jordan anchoring the second line between Nathan Gerbe and Patrick Dwyer. He seems to have found a comfortable groove of late, so don't be afraid to start him in medium to deeper leagues.

Staal Scores In Canes' Loss

News: Jordan Staal scored one of Carolina's two goals in Friday's loss to the Capitals, his second point in as many games.
Analysis: Jordan Staal has sputtered out of the gate in his second season in Carolina, but he's going to at least surpass the 10 goals he scored in his debut campaign with the Canes. He has the talent to score more, but he'll have to do it away from Pittsburgh to earn back the confidence of owners in most leagues. He still plays close to 20 minutes per game with power play time to boot, so those in deeper leagues may be able to make use of his services.

Jordan Staal Sparks Canes

News: Jordan Staal notched a goal and an assist in Friday's 5-3 win over San Jose, his first points in two games.
Analysis: Jordan Staal has three goals over his last five games, numbers the Canes were expecting from him when they acquired him in the summer of 2012. Staal is still looking for his consistency in Raleigh, but does have the talent to be a consistent 20-goal scorer.

J. Staal Scores For Canes In Loss To Devils

News: Jordan Staal scored his fourth goal of the season in Friday's 5-2 loss to New Jersey.
Analysis: Jordan Staal now has all of nine points through 26 games this season. This puts him on pace for a whopping 28 points, which would match his career low back in 2007-08, his second year in the league. However, he does have three points in his last five games, so hopefully this is a sign he's turned the corner.

Hurricanes' Staal Grabs Two Points

News: Jordan Staal scored a goal, assisted on another and went plus-2 in Tuesday's win over Colorado.
Analysis: Finally a nice game for Jordan Staal, who had yet to notch a multi-point outing all year long entering Tuesday's action. It'll take more than one good game to make up for his struggles to start the year, but keep an eye on Staal's production to see if this is the start of more offense.
