  • Wild's Eric Staal: Diagnosed with concussion

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/23/17) Staal sustained a concussion but did not suffer any other injuries during Game 5 against the Blues, Michael Russo of the Star Tribune reports.

    By the look of it, Staal's injury could have been a lot worse, so the 32-year-old pivot should be thankful that he walked away with only a concussion. With Minnesota's season over, Staal will have plenty of time to rehab and there's no reason to think he won't be able to play once training camp rolls around this fall.

    Wild's Eric Staal: Taken to hospital

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/22/17) Staal was taken to the hospital after crashing headfirst into the boards during Saturday's Game 5 against the Blues. He will not return.

    According to the NBC broadcast, Staal was alert and stable, which is a good thing. However, even if the Wild avoid elimination Saturday, Staal may not be able to return for Game 6.

    Wild's Eric Staal: Leaves game with head injury

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/22/17) Staal was forced to exit Saturday's Game 5 matchup with the Blues after sustaining an apparent injury upon crashing headfirst into the boards.

    The incident was quite scary, and it seems unlikely Staal will be able to return for this game, and perhaps not for any future games in this series. Perhaps luck will be on Staal's side, but for now it doesn't look like he will be back for Game 5, and that certainly hurts Minnesota's chances of staving off elimination.

    Wild's Eric Staal: Sinks former mates with two helpers

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/5/17) Staal picked up a pair of assists with a plus-3 rating in Tuesday's 5-3 win against the Hurricanes.

    Staal is heating up down the stretch, and that's great news for the Wild as they head into the postseason. The veteran has eight goals with 15 points and a plus-9 rating over his past 15 games. Staal is up to 27 goals (his most since 2010-11) and 63 points (his most since hitting 70 for the fifth consecutive season in 2011-12).

    Wild's Eric Staal: Opens scoring Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/27/17) Staal found the top shelf halfway through the first period in Sunday's 3-2 overtime loss to Detroit.

    The last time Staal reached 60 points in a season was 2013-2014 when he tallied 61 over 79 games. 32-year-old now sits in prime position to reach that mark again, as he currently sits at 58 points with seven games to go. Not only that, but he's hot right now recording seven goals and three assists over the past ten games. Staal remains a solid option in virtually any format right now.
