Jordan Staal scored his 15th goal of the season Sunday in a 3-2 loss to Winnipeg.

The point gives him three in the last three games since returning to action following the death of his infant daughter last week. He has 37 points in 63 games and is a fringe fantasy player in most leagues.

Jordan Staal played on Thursday for the first time since his infant daughter passed away.

Staal of course needed to step away from hockey following that tragedy, but he made the decision to rejoin the Hurricanes. He had an assist and logged 18:07 minutes to help Carolina earn a 4-1 win over Philadelphia. "He's a lift, spiritually and physically on the ice," Justin Williams said of Staal. "You know he's going to make the right play. You know he's going to win a battle. As his linemate, playing tonight, you know he's going to get the puck to you when it's a 1-on-1 battle. He's a very important piece for us, clearly."

Feb 24 - 6:15 PM

Jordan Staal took a high stick to the mouth late in Friday's game against Washington.

Luckily, Staal, who now has a five-game scoring streak, only sustained a split and bloodied lip. He did not have to leave the game, although there were only seconds left in the contest. The Hurricanes were rather upset that there was no penalty on the play.
Jan 13 - 9:18 AM

Jordan Staal scored a shorthanded goal in Thursday's 3-1 win over the Washington Capitals.

The 'Canes delivered a winning performance on a day when they officially got a new majority owner. Staal intercepted a pass at his own blue line before beating Caps netminder Braden Holtby in the second period. The goal gave the Hurricanes a 1-0 lead at the time. Staal finished the night with a plus-1 rating, three shots on goal and two hits in 21:06 of ice time. He now has 12 goals and 26 points in 43 games. His point streak has hit four games.
Jan 11 - 10:24 PM

Jordan Staal is on a three-game point streak.

Staal registered an assist on Tuesday to keep that run going. That gives him 11 goals and 25 points in 42 contests in 2017-18. As long as he stays healthy, he should at least surpass the 40-point milestone for a third straight campaign.
Jan 10 - 6:46 AM

Jordan Staal scored the Carolina Hurricanes' only goal in a 7-1 loss to the Boston Bruins on Saturday night.

Staal has points in back-to-back games for the fourth time this season. However, the co-captain scored his team's sole marker on Saturday, and were unable to weather the seven-goal barrage unleashed by the Bruins. Staal now has 11 goals and 24 points in 41 games played this season.
Jan 6 - 9:50 PM

Jordan Staal feels the co-captain arrangement in Carolina has worked out well.

Rather than name a single captain for the 2017-18 campaign, Staal has been wearing the "C" during home games while Justin Faulk has that distinction on the road. "It’s been good," Jordan Staal said of the arrangement. "There’s a little more off-the-ice stuff and ‘Faulker’ does some of that, as well, in working with the coaches. It’s been working fine, although I wasn’t expecting it to be anything crazy." Staal admitted that he was initially not comfortable with the role of captain, which belonged to his older brother, Eric Staal, until he was traded in 2016. However, over time Jordan Staal has grown accustomed to how things are without his brother on the squad. Meanwhile, Jordan Staal is set to play in his 800th game on Wednesday. Given that he's just 29-years-old, he should have plenty more milestones ahead of him.

Jordan Staal scored his 10th goal of the season, a power-play marker, in Saturday's 4-2 victory against the Sabres.

Staal heads into the holiday break on a roll, producing three goals with four points and a plus-2 rating over his past five outings. The power-play marker was actually his first of the season on the man advantage, but it isn't likely to be his last. Don't be surprised to see Bill Peters lean upon him more heavily on the power play in the near future.
