Jordan Staal scored two goals and one assist in Monday's 6-2 win over the Edmonton Oilers.

Staal will get plenty of minutes this season, but his fantasy upside remains limited. The 29-year-old hasn't hit the 50-point mark since the 2011-12 season. Staal is coming off a 16-goal and 45-point season with the 'Canes last season. He's a good two-way player, but he'll only be fantasy relevant in the deepest of standard leagues.

Jordan Staal was centering Sebastian Aho and Elias Lindholm on the first day of training camp.

That's Carolina's best line, but don't forget, it's only the first day of training camp, so they could change in a hurry. Victor Rask was with Justin Williams and Teuvo Teravainen, while Derek Ryan was centering Jeff Skinner and Lee Stempniak.

Jordan Staal had a three point night on Saturday.

Staal has nine goals and 23 points in 36 games and is showing his offensive upside that was really last seen in Pittsburgh in 2011-12 when he had 25 goals and 50 points in 62 games. He is worth a pickup now.

Jordan Staal is coming back from his first experience with a concussion.

Staal described the experience as more frustrating than when he was out with a broken tibia. With a bone you have a rough idea of how long it's going to take to heal, but that's not true of concussions. He was able to consult his brothers though, Marc and Eric Staal, about the process. "I learned a lot, understanding it’s a different injury that’s very difficult to read," Jordan Staal said. "They said to take your time, so I feel like I’ve done a god job of trying to do that. It’s been hard but I wanted to be 100 percent when I get back." Staal might return on Tuesday after taking part in Monday's practice.
