Jordan Staal registered two assists in Carolina's 5-2 victory over Calgary on Sunday.
Staal has 11 goals and 25 points in 50 games this season. That's consistent with the kind of offensive output he's had over the previous two campaigns, although it certainly doesn't match what Carolina was hoping for when they originally acquired him. Jan 25 - 8:03 AM

Jordan Staal scored the only goal of Carolina's win against Toronto on Thursday night, potting the overtime winner.

Staal's OT winner was his 11th goal of the season. He has 23 points in 48 games so far this season.

Jordan Staal netted the overtime game-winning goal for the Hurricanes in their 4-3 victory Saturday night against the Blue Jackets.

Staal also received a secondary assist on John-Michael Liles’ second-period marker, so he now has two-point games in three consecutive games. The reality is, though, that Staal is a more useful real-life power forward than a fantasy one. He has just nine goals and 19 points. Kris Versteeg and Andrej Nestrasil picked up the other markers.

Jordan Staal scored and added an assist in a 3-2 loss to Vancouver on Wednesday.

The goal was his 8th of the year. He has 17 points in 41 games and is nearly on pace to meet his ugly total of 40 points he had last season. John Michael-Liles scored the other goal in a losing cause.

Jordan Staal registered an assist in a 4-2 victory Thursday night.

Staal has seven goals and 15 points in 38 games this season. That puts him on pace to record 32 points, which would be a bit of a disappointment. It wouldn't be shocking if he improves in the second half of the campaign, but even then he probably won't do much better than 40 points.

The Carolina Hurricanes have been pleased with their third line combination of Jordan Staal, Andrej Nestrasil and Joakim Nordstrom.

While coach Bill Peters does not use the words 'checking line' the third liners have been good in the last 15 games when they were put together in shutting down the opposition's top line. "They complement each other well," Peters said. "They have an identity. They’re comfortable with the way they’re supposed to play and they bring it each and every night. I think ‘Jordo’ is skating as well as he ever has here this year. He’s playing with a lot of pace. ‘Nordy’ brings more speed to that line and ‘Nesty’ is a very confident player offensively and hangs on to pucks and makes plays. So it’s been a real good line for us." Peters is now using Staal on the second power play as well and that should help his stats as he has seven goals and 14 points this season.

Jordan Staal stayed hot, picking up another goal in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Penguins.

Staal now has points in four of his last five games, collecting two goals and four points in that time. Hey, for a player who now has seven goals and 14 points on the season, that's considered hot.

Jordan Staal had an assist in a 4-3 overtime loss against Philadelphia on Tuesday.

Staal has recorded a point in each of his last three games. This still hasn't been a great season for him overall though as he has six goals and 13 points in 31 contests.

Jordan Staal scored a goal in a 4-3 loss to the New York Rangers on Tuesday.

It was Staal's fifth goal and ninth point in 25 games this season. He's certainly capable of improving upon his current point-per-game pace, but we don't expect a big jump from him.

Jordan Staal, who sat out of practice last Saturday after getting hit by the puck in a Friday game against Toronto, scored a goal and added an assist in the Carolina Hurricanes' 4-1 rout of the visiting Edmonton Oilers Wednesday night.

Staal increased his goal production on the season to four. He also has four assists now. He wasn't the only two-point producer for Carolina Wednesday. Andrej Nestrasil also had a goal (second) and an assist (first), while Justin Faulk had two assists (ninth and 10th). Faulk and fellow defenseman Ron Hainsey were both plus-threes on the night.

Jordan Staal sat out practice on Saturday after getting hit by the puck during Friday's game against Toronto.

Staal should be able to go on Sunday as it was just precautionary. Staal has never become the big point producer everyone thought he would be when he was selected second overall by Pittsburgh in the 2006 Draft and has only three goals and six points in 19 games this season. Unless you are in a very deep league, he does not deserve to be in anyone's fantasy lineup.

Jordan scored at the 2:51 mark of overtime to give the Hurricanes a 3-2 win over the Senators.

Staal also registered an assist in the contest. Brother Eric and Justin Faulk also had two-point games. Perhaps the real hero for the Canes Saturday night was Jeff Skinner. He scored with only four seconds left in regulation time to tie the game and send it into overtime.

Jordan Staal scored a goal in Friday's 4-1 loss to the Dallas Stars.

Staal's goal at the 3:41 mark of the second period gave Carolina a 1-0 lead, but the Stars scored four unanswered goals. The 27-year-old has two goals and four points in 13 games this season. Eric Staal and Ron Hainsey picked up the assists on the goal.

Jordan Staal recorded two assists in Carolina's 3-2 overtime win against the New York Islanders.

Going into that game, Staal had no points in nine contests this season. This might spark him, but at the same time we're not expecting a big season out of Staal. He might prove to be serviceable with around 40 points in 2015-16, but he's likely never going to have the big season some were waiting for when he was first moved from the Penguins to Carolina.

Jordan Staal doesn't want the Carolina Hurricanes to dwell too much on their 0-2-0 start.

"There are 80 games left," Staal said. "It's a long season. Our philosophy all season will be moving on to the next shift, next game, next practice. We’re always trying to get better and I think we improved on our game from the Nashville game. We had a tough ending last game but had a lot of good things, as well. We just want to get that first win and build on that." Carolina has plenty of company when it comes to an 0-2-0 record and its not like that in itself is anything to be particularly concerned about. The Hurricanes aren't highly regarded though and their slow start only feeds into that perception. Nevertheless they'll be competing for their first win on Tuesday against Florida.
