Matt Stajan dedicated his tremendous performance Saturday night to the newborn son he lost just a few weeks ago.

It was a touching moment for the Stajan family who had gone through such a tragedy. Stajan pointed to the heavens as he scored his goal in the Flames' 8-1 rout of the Oilers. Stajan also registered three assists to give him a four-point night to tie a career high. Stajan's teammates certainly acknowledged the special moment he enjoyed. "It's been a tough go for him, but they're a strong family," Curtis Glencross said. "Him and Katie have done a lot of praying and gone through a lot. I got a little choked up after his goal when he pointed up. You could see exactly what he was doing. He's not only a good player but an unbelievable person." Stajan himself had this to say: "That one means a lot. You know, it hasn’t been easy. That one’s for the little guy". Along with all hockey fans, we wish the Stajan family peace of mind.

Matt Stajan doesn't mind being part of a rebuilding effort.

"I want to be a part of something where you can turn something around and grow it all together to be successful," Stajan said. "Sometimes you go in and, yeah, I could get traded to a playoff team.

Jan 19 - 1:20 AM

Matt Stajan doesn't think David Backes was out to hurt him when he delivered a knee-on-knee hit during Monday's game.

"He sent me a text to see if I was OK, which was nice of him," said Stajan. "I don't think there was any intent. It's a reaction play. A bang-bang play, he was trying to hit me and I tried to dodge the hit and his leg came through. That happens a lot. I never thought there was any intent, I just was frustrated at the time with the way it went down, in the heat of the moment." Stajan ended up rejoining the Flames for their following game on Friday. That's not the only big blow he's taken recently, but he hasn't missed a contest as a result of them and claims to feel okay.
