Matt Stajan scored his fourth goal of the season in Calgary's 6-3 loss to Anaheim on Friday night.

Stajan slammed home the rebound off Joe Colborne's slick interception of Cam Fowler's ill-advised pass through the middle. And just like that, the Flames were up 1-0 with 5:10 to go in the first. Stajan played just 9:14 in the game with the goal being his only statistical contribution. He has 10 points in 41 games this season.
Feb 21 - 2:01 AM

Matt Stajan opened and closed the Flames' scoring in their 6-5 loss to the Panthers on Friday night.

Both goals were on the soft side, but then again, it was an 11-goal game. Stajan's first goal gave the Flames a 1-0 lead just 2:42 into the game, and his second tied the game at five with less than four minutes to go. Unfortunately it wasn't enough. Stajan now has three goals and seven points on the season.
Jan 10 - 1:12 AM

Matt Stajan, Corey Potter, and Brian McGrattan are all expected to be healthy scratches Friday night against the Stars.

Unfortunately, none of these three have any fantasy value.

Matt Stajan returned to game action on Saturday and picked up an assist.

Stajan missed 16 games with a knee injury and now has three points in 12 games this season. He revealed that his wife is seven months pregnant. That is great news for the Stajans as the two lost their newborn son Emerson in March. Our best wishes go out to the Stajans.

Look for Matt Stajan (knee) to return to Calgary's lineup on Saturday.

Stajan has missed the last 15 games and is slated to play with Brandon Bollig and Lance Bouma. Stajan had two points in 11 games before his injury and the Flames went 11-4 during his absence. We cannot recommend him at this time.

Matt Stajan (knee) won't return Thursday.

"Staje is not going," coach Bob Hartley said. "He's ready (but) we're working on his conditioning. It's a coach's decision right now." Stajan has two points in 11 games and he hasn't played since Oct. 28.

Matt Stajan (knee) is still a possibility for Thursday's game.

It would be Stajan's first contest since Oct. 28. He has a goal and an assist in 11 contests this season.

Matt Stajan was on the ice with the Calgary Flames on Monday for the first time since sustaining a knee injury.

Stajan hasn't played since Oct. 28. He will remain on the sidelines for Tuesday's contest, but might be back as early as Thursday. "Any time you're hurt, you're always anxious to get back and just slide right back into what's been going on … and get back into working shape," Stajan said. "It's one thing to skate on your own for the last week, but you haven't … been getting up to the pace of games and moving the puck. It was good to feel that (Monday). One day at a time — we'll talk to the coaches and the medical staff to see how everything reacts. So far, no issues."

Matt Stajan (knee) skated before practice on Friday

Stajan suffered the knee injury on October 28. There is no timetable at this point for his return. He has one goal and two points in 11 games so his status should not affect your fantasy pool.

Matt Stajan (knee) has been placed on injured reserve by the Flames.

He's expected to miss about six weeks. Stajan had a knee-on-knee collision with Montreal's Jarred Tinordi on Tuesday night and it looked like he could be done for the year. He has one goal and one assist in 11 games.
Wed, Oct 29, 2014 06:39:00 PM

Matt Stajan (knee) wasn't able to return to the Flames' lineup before the end of Tuesday's game.

Stajan needed help to get off the ice after absorbing a knee-on-knee hit with Jarred Tinordi in the third period. The Flames didn't update his status after the game, so it's best to consider him day-to-day until more information surfaces.

Matt Stajan exited in the third period after taking a knee-on-knee hit with Jarred Tinordi.

Stajan was in obvious pain after the collision and had to be helped to get off the ice. It could be another tough blow for the Flames who had Joe Colborne leave the same game with an upper body injury. More updates when we have them.

Matt Stajan scored a goal in Calgary's 5-0 victory on Thursday.

Stajan now has two points in nine games this season. Aside from his slow start, he's also not getting enough playing time to make it worth owning him in standard leagues.

Matt Stajan was limited to just 8:00 minutes of ice time Calgary's season opener.

To be fair, Stajan did have to temporarily leave the game to get stitched up, but even then his playing time was lacking. We're concerned that he might not have a consistent role on a scoring line this season and will have little to no fantasy value as a result.
