Staal has 24 points in 45 games so far this season, which is right on par with last year's 40 point output during a full season. Staal has not been able to produce for fantasy owners at the pace he was at while he was with Pittsburgh. He'll be a mid-to-late round pick next season. Apr 9 - 11:41 PM

Jordan Staal factored into the Carolina Hurricanes' 3-2 shootout win against the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday.

Jordan Staal recorded an assist in a 3-2 shootout loss against the New York Rangers.

Staal got off to a strong start upon returning from a fractured fibula by scoring a goals and nine points in 12 contests. He's slowed down dramatically in March though with just two assists in his last 10 games. Given that Carolina doesn't have much to play for at this point, we recommend tempering your expectations for Staal for the final weeks of the season.

Jordan Staal scored a goal in a 4-1 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers.

Staal has recorded a point in three of his last four contests. He has four goals and 15 points in 23 games this season. There's been speculation about him being reacquired by the Pittsburgh Penguins, but Hurricanes GM Ron Francis has denied those reports.
Feb 25 - 9:30 AM

Jordan Staal will not be moved, according to Hurricanes GM Ron Francis.

Francis was responding to a report from the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, which stated that the Penguins had interest in acquiring Staal. Nothing is ever set in stone and it's standard for a team to deny a trade rumor if they address it at all. That being said, Staal is signed to a 10-year, $60 million deal and while the length of it makes him a risk, especially given his injury history, Staal's capabilities when he's healthy also make that a worthwhile contract for the Hurricanes to hold onto. Unless it gets to the point where it's Staal that's pushing for a trade, we remain skeptical of the possibility that he will be dealt in the not too distant future.

Jordan Staal was assured that the trade rumors that surrounded him are "unfounded" by his current team, the Carolina Hurricanes.

According to Aaron Ward, that is. Only a handful of people in the Hurricanes-J. Staal-Penguins world knows the truth. But if the team has told a reporter that they assured Staal personally, it's probably true. Jordan Staal has 14 points in 22 games this season.

The Penguins have interest in bringing back Jordan Staal, according to Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

Yohe says that a move wouldn’t happen until after the season ended, though Pittsburgh has checked in now with the Hurricanes to see what it would take to get something done before the trade deadline, which is March 2. Staal is in the second season of a 10-year, $60 million contract; thus, the Penguins would need to cut payroll significantly to fit him under their cap as they have less than $1 million in space now. Yohe says that Staal, who has a no-trade clause, would OK a trade to the Penguins. It's also worth noting Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford was the GM of the Hurricanes when they acquired him at the 2012 draft, then signed him to the huge extension. Staal has 14 points in 22 games this season.
Feb 21 - 11:01 PM

Jordan Staal scored a goal in a 5-4 overtime loss to Anaheim.

Staal has recorded at least a point in four of his last five contests. He has two goals and 10 points in 14 games in 2014-15.
Feb 4 - 5:07 AM

Jordan Staal had two assists in Carolina's 4-2 loss to Tampa Bay Tuesday night.

Staal has a goal and eight points in 11 games this season. He's been great since returning from a fractured fibula and it certainly helps that he's been playing with his older brother Eric Staal. As long as that line stays intact, the younger Staal should continue to maintain his current pace, which would translate to another 15-20 points in 25 contests.
Jan 28 - 10:42 AM

Jordan Staal had two assists in a 4-1 victory over Toronto.

Fantasy owners that patiently waited for Staal's return from a fractured fibula are getting the benefits now. He has a solid six points in 10 contests since returning and might pick up the pace after the All-Star break given that the injury is firmly behind him. It helps that he's been getting regular minutes with brother Eric Staal.
Jan 20 - 8:56 AM

Jordan Staal scored his first goal of the season on Tuesday night in a 3-2 shootout win over Colorado.

Staal has only played in seven games this year due to a fractured fibula he suffered prior to the season and ha picked up four points in the process. He's worth an add in deeper formats, but not consistent enough to be rostered in shallow leagues. Patrick Dwyer also found the back of the net for Carolina in the win.
Jan 13 - 10:47 PM

Hurricanes coach Bill Peters plans to maintain the combination of Jordan Staal and Eric Staal for the foreseeable future.

That's good news for Jordan given how offensively gifted his older brother Eric is. In past years, when coach Kirk Muller was still in charge, the Staal brothers would only play together sparingly, but it looks like Peters doesn't intend to go that route. As for the third member of the Staal line, that's currently Elias Lindholm, but Peters warned that he might experiment with putting other players in that role.
Jan 6 - 7:33 AM

Jordan Staal picked up an assist Friday as he became a father for the first time earlier in the day.

The Staal's welcomed a baby daughter they named Abigail in the wee morning hours and Staal celebrated by setting up his brother and new uncle Eric for the winning marker. Congratulations to the Staal family on their baby daughter. Staal has two assists in two games this season after missing most of the season with a fractured fibula.
Jan 3 - 7:23 AM

Jordan Staal (lower body) is expected to return on Friday.

Staal missed Wednesday's game due to the injury. It's not clear if Staal's latest setback was related to the fractured fibula that caused him to miss the first 35 contests of the season. With Jeff Skinner out due to an illness, Staal will likely take his place on a line with his brother Eric Staal and Elias Lindholm.
Jan 2 - 11:19 AM

Jordan Staal will miss Wednesday's game due to a lower-body injury.

It's not clear if it's related to the fractured fibula, which caused him to miss the first 35 games of the season. He only returned from the injury on Monday. With Jordan Staal back on the sidelines, Jiri Tlusty and Elias Lindholm will join Eric Staal on the top line.
