Staal notched two assists in Sunday's 6-2 win over the Penguins. He recorded helpers on both of Justin Williams' third-period goals, as the veteran forwards showed some good chemistry together. Staal has a goal and eight points in the last 11 games, one of his best stretches of the season, and he could supply some deep-league fantasy value down the stretch on an impressively reinforced Carolina roster.
Staal scored a goal on three shots and won 11 of 20 faceoffs (55.0 percent) in Tuesday's 4-1 win over Nashville. Staal found the net during a scramble in front to open the scoring just over three minutes into the game. It was the 225th goal of Staal's career and put an end to his 11-game drought. He has 21 points in 59 games in a support role for the Hurricanes.
Staal posted an assist, three shots on goal and four PIM in Friday's 5-2 win over the Devils. Staal's assist was just his second during a 10-game goal drought -- the center has otherwise been ice-cold on offense. He's at 20 points, 108 shots and 117 hits through 57 games, but he's not worth a look in fantasy until he can get his scoring going.
Staal recorded two hits and blocked two shots but recorded no other statistics across 18:08 of ice time Monday in the Hurricanes' 6-5 shootout win over the Golden Knights. The 31-year-old remains an important locker-room presence for the Hurricanes, but that's about the extent of his value these days. Staal has scored only one goal and accounted for three total points over Carolina's last 14 games and has just 19 points in 55 contests on the season.
Staal picked up an assist, two shots on net and two hits in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Blues. Staal set up Brock McGinn for a tally at 12:31 of the third period. The helper snapped a five-game drought for the 31-year-old center, who has just 19 points in 53 games this season. He's added 112 hits and 102 shots, but the poor offense will keep fantasy owners from taking a look at Staal.
