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.
Dec 4 - 5:05 PM

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.
Nov 22 - 7:50 AM

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.
Oct 29 - 6:39 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.
Oct 29 - 1:53 AM

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.

Oct 24 - 10:10 AM

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.
Oct 9 - 8:02 AM

It looks like Matt Stajan will start the season on Calgary's fourth line.

That's quite a step down after he averaged 18:22 minutes per game in 2013-14. Of course, odds are you didn't draft him anyways if you're in a standard league because even with that kind of ice time, he still recorded just 33 points in 63 games.
Oct 8 - 1:38 PM

Matt Stajan increased his point streak to four games with a goal in Calgary's 3-2 loss to Toronto on Tuesday night.

Stajan has two goals and two assists over the four game span. He has 31 points through 60 games this season, needing just one more point to eclipse his best output as a member of the Calgary Flames.
Apr 1 - 10:30 PM

Matt Stajan recorded an assist in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to Anaheim.

Stajan has 11 goals and 28 points in 57 games this season. He's been averaging 18:23 minutes per contest in 2013-14, which is the most he's logged since 2009-10.
