Hurricanes' J. Staal Grabs Two Points

News: Jordan Staal picked up an assist and scored into an empty net Thursday against Philadelphia.
Analysis: Jordan Staal's offensive production has been pretty inconsistent, but it's nice to see him deliver a good game as the season winds to a close. A return to full health and productivity next year will be crucial for Staal and the 'Canes.

Carolina's Staal Has Two-Point Saturday

News: Jordan Staal recorded a goal and assist in Saturday's win over the Flyers.
Analysis: It's the third multi-point outing of the season for Jordan Staal, who has been limited to just 42 games after fracturing his fibula during training camp. He's scoring at roughly a half-point-per-game clip, but that's simply not enough for the Hurricanes, who signed the forward to a 10-year, $60 million extension in 2012. It appears unlikely the 26-year-old will realize the 60-point potential that once seemed his destiny earlier in his career with the Penguins.

Canes Jo. Staal Assists In Win Over Pens

News: Jordan Staal recorded an assist in Thursday's 5-2 upset win over the Penguins. It was his 19th point in 37 games since returning in December from a broken leg.
Analysis: Jordan Staal's current pace would put him at around 40-45 points over the course of a full campaign, which is roughly in line with what he has produced over the past several seasons. Staal has been very good at avoiding the injury bug over the years, so you can probably pencil him in for a similar stat line next season.

Canes' J. Staal Adds To Assist Total

News: Jordan Staal collected an assist Tuesday, but the Hurricanes ultimately took a 4-3 shootout loss to the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: With consideration to a fractured fibula that he sustained last September, Jordan Staal has been serviceable with the puck. He has four goals and 13 assists in 29 games. On the downside, the Hurricanes have a poor goal differential (-23) and it's led to a plus/minus rating of minus-5 for Staal. Still, unless you play in a very shallow league, there is little reason not to throw Staal in your lineup each time he takes the ice.

Canes' J. Staal Bags Goal In Win

News: Jordan Staal netted a power-play goal on one of his three shot attempts in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Flyers.
Analysis: A fractured fibula cost Jordan Staal considerable time earlier this season, but since returning to action in December, he's actually been more productive on a per-game basis than a year earlier. His four goals and 11 assists over 23 games have given life to a Hurricanes attack that desperately needed more skill down the middle.

Canes' J. Staal Thriving As Top Center

News: Jordan Staal had an assist in Saturday's 5-4 win over the Sharks, giving him 11 points in 16 games since returning from a fractured fibula in December.
Analysis: Before Jordan Staal returned to the lineup Dec. 29, the lowly Canes were 10-22-3. Since he's been back, they are 9-4-4. Staal is positively thriving now as the team's No. 1 center, with brother Eric on the wing, and he deserves to be in your fantasy lineup every time he hits the ice.

Another Two Helpers For Canes' J. Staal

News: Jordan Staal posted his second straight two-assist game Tuesday, helping out on brother Eric's game-opening goal and Justin Faulk's power-play tally in a win over Tampa Bay.
Analysis: That's eight points in 11 games for Jordan Staal since his return -- a fine rate if he can keep it up, but this sample's still too small to tell us whether he's truly stepped up his game.

Canes' J. Staal Assists On Two

News: Jordan Staal tallied a pair of assists, both on goals by older brother Eric, in Monday's 4-1 win over the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: Jordan Staal has played in just 10 games this season, but after returning from injury he's got five points and is maintaining his pace from last season of about a point every other game. The 26-year-old should provide fairly consistent play on the teams' first line.

Canes' J. Staal Finally Scores First Goal Of Year

News: Jordan Staal notched his first goal of the season Tuesday, opening the scoring at 14:05 of the first period in an eventual shootout win over the Avs.
Analysis: After managing a modest nine shots over his first six games back -- with three assists to show for that span -- Jordan Staal came out with a vengeance in this one, firing five pucks on net and getting paid off with the marker. The 'Canes have put him right back into a premier, big-minute role since his return from a broken leg, and he appears to be rounding into form.

Carolina's J. Staal In Line To Play Friday

News: Jordan Staal (lower body) was on the ice for morning skate and is in line to play Friday versus the Flyers, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Jordan Staal took part in both power-play drills and line rushes, an indication he's not at risk of missing Friday's contest. He was forced out of Wednesday's game against the Penguins after experiencing soreness in his leg following his season debut earlier this week.

Canes' Staal (Lower-Body) To Sit Wednesday

News: Jordan Staal will not play Wednesday night against the Penguins, NHL.com's Michael Smith reports.
Analysis: Jordan Staal was present on the ice for morning skate, and appeared to be on track to play, but the team will take a conservative approach and rest him New Year's Eve. He'll next see an opportunity to take the ice Friday against the Flyers.

Canes' J. Staal (Leg) Set To Play Wednesday

News: Jordan Staal (leg) was on the ice for morning skate and appears set to play Wednesday versus the Penguins.
Analysis: Jordan Staal required treatment on his leg after making his season debut Monday night, but his return to practice the following day suggests it was likely just a precautionary concern. He'll man a spot on the top line with Eric Staal and Elias Lindholm in a match against his former squad.

Hurricanes' Staal (Leg) Practicing Tuesday

News: Jordan Staal (leg) is practicing Tuesday, NHL.com's Michael Smith reports.
Analysis: Making his return from a fractured fibula, Jordan Staal got a bit of a scare toward the end of Monday's game, as P.K. Subban fell on the forward's leg. Staal said afterward that he should be fine, and his participation in Tuesday's practice would seem to confirm that belief.

Hurricanes' Staal Possibly Aggravates Leg

News: Jordan Staal received treatment on his leg after Monday's game, Luke DeCock of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Jordan Staal suffered a fractured fibula in his right leg in September, and Monday's appearance was his first of the season. P.K. Subban fell on the leg during the final minute of the game, and while Staal limped off the ice, he said afterward that he should be fine. Despite the veteran center's optimism, his lengthy stay in the trainer's room indicates that he may be in some danger of missing Wednesday's contest against the Penguins.

Canes' Staal Will Play Monday

News: Jordan Staal (leg) will play Monday against the Canadiens.
Analysis: The Hurricanes activated Jordan Staal off IR on Monday, confirming his return to the lineup. The center hasn't played at all this season, but finished last year with 15 goals and 25 assists in 82 games.

Canes' Staal (Leg) Expected To Return Monday

News: Coach Bill Peters indicated he expects Jordan Staal (leg) to return to the lineup against the Canadiens on Monday, Michael Smith of the Canes' official site reports.
Analysis: Jordan Staal was targeting Monday as a potential return date, and it appears he will hit the mark barring a setback. If he indeed returns, Staal will provide the Canes a much needed boost offensively, as the team is averaging just 2.06 goals per game.

Canes' J. Staal (Leg) Aiming For Dec. 29 Return

News: Jordan Staal (leg) is targeting a possible return to the lineup Dec. 29 against the Canadiens, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: The struggling Canes are 9-20-4 and desperately need the kind of boost that Jordan Staal's return would bring. Keep your fingers crossed and hope that he can inject some offense into a Carolina attack that ranks second-last in the league in scoring (2.06 goals per game).

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.
