Jordan Staal, C, CAR Hurricanes' J. Staal Picks Up Two Assists

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.

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

Jordan Staal

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.

Jordan Staal

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

Jordan Staal

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

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.

Junior Staal Scores For 'Canes

News: Jordan Staal scored just his second goal of the year Tuesday, Carolina's lone tally of regulation in a 2-1 overtime win over the Flyers.
Analysis: It's been a rough year for Jordan Staal, but he had a positive game in this one, winning 62.5 percent of his face-offs in addition to notching the goal.

Canes' J. Staal Struggling To Find Offense

News: Jordan Staal has just one goal and two assists through 13 games this season along with a minus-3 rating.
Analysis: Jordan Staal is still averaging over 20 minutes per game anchoring the second line with Patrick Dwyer and Nathan Gerbe, but he's just not clicking offensively right now. In his defense, the 'Canes as a unit are one of the lowest-scoring teams in the league, averaging just two goals per game, so the problem here does not lie just with Staal. However, from a fantasy standpoint, it's best to keep him on your fantasy bench in shallower formats until he starts to show some signs of life.

Canes' Staal Seeing Plenty Of Minutes But No Points

News: Through three games, Jordan Staal is averaging over 20 minutes per night but has yet to register a point.
Analysis: Even though Jordan Staal leads all Carolina forwards in average ice time per game, his linemates (Nathan Gerbe and Patrick Dwyer) leave something to be desired. On the bright side, Staal did fire a whopping six shots on net during Tuesday's loss to the Penguins, so hopefully it's a sign his point production is finally about to kick into gear.

Hurricanes' Staal In Great Shape For Upcoming Season

News: Jordan Staal came into training camp 10 pounds lighter, and says he feels lighter and quicker on the ice, the Raleigh News and Observer reports. "I'm excited where I'm at right now," Staal said. "I feel really good."
Analysis: Contrast this to last season's lockout-shortened schedule when Jordan Staal was not able to come to camp in the shape he wanted. "Last summer was a mess," he said. "I had 11 weddings to go to, and my own wedding. It all added up and it was a tough summer to get in the right frame of mind and get my body right." Staal finished the season with a modest 10 goals and 21 assists, along with a minus-18 rating, easily the worst of his seven-year NHL career. This season, however, it sounds like he is getting off on the right track. "I didn't have great season last year and I know a good start for myself may get me back into the running," Staal said. "Hopefully, I'll have a big start this year."

Canes' Staal Brothers To Start Wearing Visors

News: Jordan Staal, along with brother Eric, will begin wearing a protective visor following the recent eye injury to their younger brother Marc, the Raleigh News and Observer reports. "We kind of looked at each other like, ‘We've got to start wearing one,'" Jordan said. "It was just one of those moments like, ‘That's it.'"
Analysis: Fortunately, Jordan has some experience with visors as he wore one while playing for Canada in the 2007 World Championships, so it shouldn't impact his play too much. That said, be prepared just in case there is a slight adjustment period that affects his fantasy output.

Newcomer Staal Enjoying Life As A Hurricane

News: Jordan Staal has been the model of efficiency so far this season with 12 points in his first 13 games. Furthermore, he continues to see upwards of 20 minutes of ice time per game centering the Hurricanes' second line between Jeff Skinner and Patrick Dwyer.
Analysis: Less than a full season removed from playing in Pittsburgh, anyone who counted on a dip in Jordan Staal's numbers this year as a result of no longer playing with the likes of Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin has been sorely mistaken. Staal has fit in very well in Carolina thus far with no letup in sight. Keep him rolling.

Jordan Staal Notches Two Assists For 'Canes

News: Jordan Staal picked up a pair of assists in Thursday's win over Buffalo.
Analysis: Although his brother Eric picked up a hat trick in the game, Jordan's assists came on tallies by Jeff Skinner and Justin Faulk. He's got three points in as many games to start the season.

Canes' Extend J. Staal For 10 Years

News: Jordan Staal has signed a 10-year, $60 million extension with the Hurricances, according to on-air reports on Toronto's FAN590.
Analysis: There are few details available, but it seems like it's a similar deal to the one he rejected with the Penguins. He and his brother will be together for a long, long time.

Staal Brothers To Skate On Same Line In Carolina

News: Hurricanes head coach Kirk Muller will experiment during the upcoming preseason with playing Jordan Staal and his brother Eric on the same line, the Associated Press reports.
Analysis: The fact that Jordan Staal turned down a 10-year deal with an elite organization such as Pittsburgh's in order to come to Carolina certainly shows that he was eager to be a 'Cane and play alongside his brother. If the two exhibit some genuine on-ice chemistry, both would almost certainly experience a bump in fantasy value.

Staal Traded To Carolina In Blockbuster Friday

News: Jordan Staal was traded to the Hurricanes on Friday in exchange for Brandon Sutter, Brian Dumoulin and the eighth overall pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft in which Pittsburgh used to select defenseman Derrick Pouliot.
Analysis: Jordan Staal reportedly turned down a 10-year contract offer from the Pens on Thursday and once that happened he was clearly on the block. It was said all along that he wanted to play with his brother Eric and he will now get his wish. Staal has one year left on his contract at $4 million, but since he clearly wants to play in Carolina, don't be surprised if he signs an extension in the near future.

Pen's Staal Stalling On Contract

News: Jordan Staal has turned down a lucrative 10-year contract offer from the Penguins, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.
Analysis: Jordan Staal has reportedly indicated that he does not plan on signing a long-term extension with Pittsburgh now. Staal led the Pen's in points this post-season and is clearly an important piece in Pittsburgh's puzzle, which makes his declining of a contract offer a concerning decision from management's perspective. It is too early to declare Staal will be traded, or even leave Pittsburgh, but both of those options are now more possible if Staal refuses to sign long-term with Pittsburgh. Regardless of where he plays, Staal is a proven commodity to target in drafts.
