  • Wild's Eric Staal: Collects assist in overtime loss to Blackhawks

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/9/17) Staal registered an assist, two shots on net and a plus-2 rating during Wednesday's overtime loss to Chicago.

    With just a goal and four points through his past 12 games, it's been a disappointing run for Staal. However, it would have been foolish to expect the 32-year-old center to maintain his early-season offensive binge all season. Even with his scoring dip, Staal has 16 goals and 43 points through 53 games and is on pace for his best offensive showing since the lockout-shortened 2012-13 campaign. Minnesota has seven consecutive home games on tap, so expect Staal to find his scoring touch again sooner than later.

    Wild's Eric Staal: Racks up another three-point game

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/13/17) Staal delivered his second three-point effort in the last four games Thursday, notching a goal and two assists (one on the power play) in a 7-1 blowout of the Canadiens.

    Fantasy owners who bought Staal cheaply on draft day after easily the worst season of his career have been rewarded with a stunning return to stardom in his new digs -- he's operating at nearly a point-per-game pace and is already just one short of last season's 39-point total. The last four games have been particularly kind to Staal, who's racked up eight points (half of those on the power play) in that span. He's also now sporting a plus-14 rating, putting the veteran pivot on track to set a new career high in that category. Yes, life in Minnesota has been pretty grand for Staal, and there's no reason to think that'll change in the season's second half.

    Wild's Eric Staal: Three points against Sharks

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/6/17) Staal had two goals and an assist Thursday in San Jose.

    Staal registered a power-play goal late in the second before tacking on a pair of points in a wild third period that saw four goals by Minnesota and two by San Jose. He had just had a nine-game point streak snapped in his previous appearance, but still has a tremendous seven goals and eight assists in his past 11 games.

    Wild's Eric Staal: Keeps point streak alive with assist

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/27/16) Staal earned an assist during Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Predators.

    The streak is still alive, as Staal has now reached the scoresheet for eight games in a row. The 32-year-old has stayed consistently hot with the team -- the Wild have won 11 straight -- and sports six goals and seven helpers (three on the power play) in December alone.

    Wild's Eric Staal: Sets up teammates twice in victory

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/23/16) Staal earned two assists -- one on the power play -- and two PIM during Friday's 7-4 win against the Rangers.

    Staal is on a tear, notching points in seven straight including nine of the last 10 wins for the Wild. The 32-year-old has been the anchor to the team's exceptional streak, finding twine six times and dishing the puck six more. As an added bonus, the 2003 No. 2 pick has spent eight minutes in the penalty box after compiling just six PIM in October and November combined.
