Flames' Stajan Tallies 13th Goal

News: Matt Stajan registered his 13th goal of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: Matt Stajan's goal came on a breakaway, which he easily finished for his seventh point in six games. The 13 goals are his highest total since the 2009-10 season, and have mostly been a byproduct of an unsustainable 19.1 shooting percentage.

Flames' Stajan Out Again Wednesday

News: Matt Stajan (personal) will not play Wednesday against the Senators, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

Flames' Stajan To Sit Out Monday

News: Matt Stajan (personal) will not play Monday against the Wild, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

Flames' Stajan Gets Assist Thursday

News: Matt Stajan notched an assist Thursday to help Calgary to a 4-2 win against the Islanders.
Analysis: Matt Stajan snapped a three-game scoreless streak with the assist. He still has six points in his last nine games, but keep in mind Stajan is a fairly streaky player.

Flames' Stajan Produces Two Points

News: Matt Stajan scored a goal and added an assist in Tuesday's overtime win against the Blackhawks.
Analysis: He's been a regular on the scoresheet recently, tallying five points in as many games. However, this was Matt Stajan's first multi-point effort since way back on Dec. 4, which is fairly indicative of his fantasy value.

Matt Stajan

Calgary's Stajan Lights Lamp

News: Fresh off a new contract, Matt Stajan scored his second goal in three games in a 3-2 victory over the Coyotes on Wednesday.

Flames' Stajan Signs Extension

News: Matt Stajan signed a four-year extension with the Flames on Saturday that has an average annual value of $3.125 million, NHL.com's Aaron Vickers reports.
Analysis: Matt Stajan would have been an unrestricted free agent after the season, but will instead return to Calgary on a mid-sized contract.

Flames' Stajan Held Scoreless In Return To Ice

News: Matt Stajan (knee) played 18:21 in Friday's loss to Edmonton.
Analysis: Matt Stajan's status was foggy heading into Friday's game, but the center ended up suiting up, finishing the game with two hits, two penalty minutes and one shot on goal. He looks to be safe for his fantasy owners to use in future contests.

Matt Stajan

Flames' Stajan Now Appears Likely To Play

News: Updating a previous report, it now seems likely Matt Stajan (knee) will play Friday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
Analysis: Matt Stajan was a full participant in Friday's morning skate and looked to be in good shape, making it likely that he'll be able to suit up for the game against the Oilers. With both Curtis Glencross and Kris Russell going down with injuries recently and slated to miss extensive time, Stajan's impending return at least provides some measure of relief on the health front.

Flames' Stajan Still Out With Injury

News: Matt Stajan (knee) will not play Friday against Edmonton, the Calary Herald reports.
Analysis: There's been no update on his status since Matt Stajan was hurt on a knee-to-knee hit Monday vs. St. Louis, which isn't a good sign. He's likely out for at least a few more games.

Analysis: Backes hit Matt Stajan knee-to-knee, and received a two minute minor for the incident, but insisted there was no malicious intent. There's no word yet on his status moving forward, but hopefully the time off over Christmas will give him enough time to recover.

Matt Stajan

Flames' Stajan Gets Assist In Victory

News: Matt Stajan notched his 10th assist of the season in Saturday's loss to the Penguins.
Analysis: The assist ended a three-game scoring drought for Matt Stajan. With 16 points in 28 games, the center isn't a bad option to fill out the forward ranks for a fantasy squad, but his minus-11 rating might be a little difficult for owners to stomach.

Matt Stajan

Flames' Stajan Scores In Loss

Matt Stajan

Calgary's Stajan Dishes Out Two Assists

News: Matt Stajan picked up a pair of assists in a 4-1 win over Phoenix on Wednesday.
Analysis: Matt Stajan has been a steady hand on the first line for Calgary this season, with moderate production (12 points in 19 games) and solid two-way play. His minus-7 isn't pretty by any means, but his offensive output is projected to be back in the 40- or 50-point range, which is a big step for him.

Calgary's Stajan Scores In Loss

Matt Stajan

Flames' Stajan Pots Two Goals In Loss

News: Matt Stajan scored two goals in Thursday's loss to the Stars.
Analysis: On a typical night, Matt Stajan's two goals might have kept the Flames competitive, but a shoddy defensive effort resulted in a 7-3 loss. In spite of the loss, the game was a good confidence builder for Stajan, who had gone scoreless over the previous four games.

Matt Stajan

Flames' Stajan Pots Goal In Loss

News: Matt Stajan scored his first goal of the season in Wednesday's loss to the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: Matt Stajan now has points in each of his three games since returning from injured reserve last Thursday. Though the Flames project to be one of the lesser teams in the NHL this season, the offense has held up to its end of the bargain thus far, although two key contributors in Lee Stempniak and Mark Giordano have recently succumbed to injury. For the Flames to have a shot at remaining competitive, Stajan will need to continue to provide consistent offense on the second line.

Calgary's Stajan Notches Assist In Return

News: Matt Stajan notched an assist in his return to the lineup Thursday after missing the last eight games.
Analysis: The Calgary offense was anemic at best Thursday but Matt Stajan at least looked comfortable after being out for a while. He should center the second line going forward.

Matt Stajan

Flames' Stajan Will Play Thursday

News: Matt Stajan (leg) was activated from injured reserve and will play Thursday against the Stars, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 reports.
Analysis: The team's medical staff just gave Matt Stajan the green light to return to practice Tuesday, but it seems the 29-year-old already has his legs under him. He was practicing on the team's second line during morning skate, which is where he figures to see most of his action Thursday.
