Eric Staal is confident Jordan Staal will return this season and be able to contribute once he does.

It wouldn't be surprising if Jordan Staal returns given that his current timetable suggests that he will probably be back sometime in January. Whether or not he can meaningfully contribute after missing the first half of the season is another story. "Initially, there's the frustration of it all happening," Eric Staal said. "I think he's already over that and now it's about getting healthy and getting back. … It'll just take a little longer than we hoped. He is in phenomenal shape, the best shape I've seen him in. For something as freak as that was to happen is really, really tough, but his spirits have been pretty good."

Jordan Staal miss 3 to 4 months with a fractured right fibula.

Staal suffered the injury during Tuesday’s preseason game against Buffalo, when he got tangled up with Sabres’ defenseman Josh Gorges. Staal will undergo surgery on his fractured right fibula on Friday. Losing Staal will definitely hurt Carolina’s playoff chances. The 26-year-old scored 15 goals and 40 points in 82 games with the Hurricanes last season.

Hurricane's GM and President Ron Francis announced that Jordan Staal suffered a broken bone in the lower part of his right leg during Tuesday's preseason game with Buffalo.

We knew it was going to be bad when we heard that Staal was on crutches after the game and this confirms it. Staal is traveling back to Raleigh to visit with team doctors to find out the extent of the injury. It is a brutal way to start the season for both Staal and the Hurricanes. It is just another reason to hold your draft as late as possible. Stay tuned for details on a timetable.

Jordan Staal (leg) was set to return to Raleigh after Tuesday's preseason game in Buffalo while his teammates traveled on to Long Island.

Stall will consult with Carolina's team doctors and presumably undergo an evaluation to determine the extent of his injury. We'll pass along more details as they become available.

Hurricanes center Jordan Staal was injured in Tuesday's preseason battle with the Buffalo Sabres.

Staal appeared to get tangled with Buffalo's Josh Gorges and had to be helped from the ice as he was unable to place any weight on his right leg. We don't like to speculate about the severity of injuries, but this situation doesn't look promising for the Hurricanes forward.
Sep 23 - 9:18 PM

Carolina Hurricanes coach Bill Peters is toying with the idea of having Jordan Staal and Eric Staal play on the same line.

The more likely scenario still involves Eric Staal playing alongside Jiri Tlusty and Alexander Semin, but it's worth keeping a close eye on this situation as uniting the Staal brothers would be good news for Jordan. Both Staal brothers are coming off of disappointing campaigns, but while Eric still has fantasy value even in an off campaign, Jordan is far more of a borderline player from a fantasy perspective.

Jordan Staal had an assist in Carolina's 5-2 loss on Thursday.

Staal was on a seven-game scoring slump. That point brought him up to the 40-point milestone, which is well below where we had hoped he'd be at near the end of the 2013-14 campaign.
Apr 11 - 6:38 AM

Jordan Staal potted two assists but Carolina could not get by the Islanders, losing 5-4 on Tuesday night.

The 25 year old has struggled this season, managing just 39 points through 72 games. It would be worse had the center not picked it up this month to score 10 points in his past 12 games.
Mar 25 - 11:35 PM

With Sunday's goal, Jordan Staal now has a six-game point streak (3G, 6A) going.

He scored the Carolina Hurricanes' lone tally in a dispiriting 2-1 loss to the Edmonton Oilers. Staal also had 7 SOG and two hits in the game. He's easy to justify adding (43 percent owned) in hits leagues, as he now has 157 on the season. Whatever your format, at least keep an eye on the forward, who's usually mainly known for his defensive skills.
Mar 16 - 8:43 PM

Jordan Staal had two assists in Carolina's 4-2 win over Buffalo.

Staal extended his point streak to four games and this also marked his third straight multi-point contest. He has 13 goals and 34 points in 66 contests in 2013-14.
Mar 14 - 9:40 AM

Jordan Staal of the Carolina Hurricanes has been on a bit of a hot streak and he believes it's because he's learned how to relax and play.

But a line change that has Staal playing with wingers Jiri Tlusty and Alexander Semin likely has a lot to do with his newfound relaxation. Staal has two goals and three assists in the past three games, scoring the game-winning goal Tuesday in the Canes’ 3-1 victory against the New York Rangers. "Their line has been very effective," Canes coach Kirk Muller said. "(Staal) is getting different results, so he’s feeling better. That was the big thing he wanted – the extra responsibility. I think he’s coming into his own, playing his best hockey since he’s been here. He’s become a power forward, taking the puck wide, going to the net."

Jordan Staal had a goal and an assist on Tuesday.

Staal is now on a three-game point streak. He's been a bit of a disappointment this season with 13 goals and 32 points in 65 games. The only hope now is that he'll finish on a high not, but that's far from a certainty.
Mar 12 - 9:18 AM

Jordan Staal snapped a 10-game goalless drought Friday night.

He scored his 12th goal of the season in a 4-2 loss to the Rangers and registered four shots. The move to Carolina hasn't allowed Staal to improve offensively the way most pundits thought he would. He has 28 points in 63 games this season.
Mar 8 - 1:00 PM

Jordan Staal scored the game-winning goal in Carolina's 3-2 victory over Columbus on Monday.

Columbus had a 2-0 lead for most of the contest, but Eric Staal erased the deficit by netting back-to-back goals in just one minute midway through the third period. Jordan Staal's marker came with just 5:55 minutes left in regulation time. For Jordan, that goal ended a seven-game scoring drought. He now has 11 goals and 25 points in 52 contests in 2013-14.
