Stajan has gone eight games without a point and has just four assists on the season. The lack of production shouldn't come as much of a surprise from the 32-year-old, as he found his way onto the scoresheet just 17 times in 80 games last year. At this point, those holding out for a return to his 55-point Maple Leaf days from 2009 would be best served forgetting about such things, as Stajan isn't likely to make many fantasy waves anytime soon given his downward career trajectory.
Stajan dished out an assist in Tuesday's overtime victory over the visiting Sabre Not much of a fantasy factor these days, the 32-year-old now has a pair of points in four games to start the season. Stajan managed just 17 points across 80 contests in 2015-16 while averaging 12:42 of ice time and hardly shoots the puck (52 SOG last year), so anyone still clinging to hope for a return to his 57-point form from 2009-10 would be wise to move on.
Stajan recorded three assists -- one shorthanded -- and a plus-4 rating in Thursday's 7-3 victory over the Canucks. Surely one was not expecting Stajan to erupt for his first multi-point outing of the season, especially in the second-to-last game of the year. Well, that happened, and it was also (easily) the 32-year-olds best rating to date. With this explosion, the veteran has equaled his last campaign at 17 points.
Stajan (face) returned to game action Saturday, but recorded just one shot on goal and saw just 8:10 of ice time against the Blackhawks. Stajan remains off the fantasy radar in the majority of leagues, notching just 14 points in 73 contests this season. He appears to be good to go moving forward, so injury shouldn't be a concern for those looking to add him to daily lineups or in the deepest of season-long leagues.
Stajan left Thursday's game against the Wild after taking an elbow to the face, Kristen Odland of Postmedia reports. No update was offered on Stajan following the contest, but his situation should be revealed in the next couple days. The 32-year-old doesn't provide much production, so an absence beyond Thursday still shouldn't have much impact in fantasy leagues.
