Player Outlook

Jordan Staal finished with 45 total points (16 goals, 29 assists) in 2016-17 compared to 48 the year before. Other stat categories were also very comparable, including shots on goal (164 vs. 151), average ice time (18:40 vs. 18:18), plus-minus (minus-1 vs. plus-6) and PIM (38 vs. 34). He managed to avoid the injury bug for most of the year (other than missing seven games in December due to a concussion), and was, for the most part, the dependable, workhorse No. 1 center the Canes have come to rely on for the past five seasons. Now midway through a 10-year, $60 million contract extension, Staal appears set to reprise his top-six role for the Hurricanes this coming season. Furthermore, with perhaps only Victor Rask as his closest competitor for the top-line pivot position, there is really very little risk that Staal will relinquish that role anytime soon. Bottom line, Staal is not a tier-one or even tier-two center, but he brings dependable fantasy production to the table as long as you don't reach for him in drafts.

Player News
  • Staal closed the season with a pair of assists in his last two contests, bringing his regular-season tally to 45 points in 75 games. Staal was once again the Hurricanes' top center for most of the season, skating mostly with newcomers Teuvo Teravainen and Sebastian Aho. Now halfway through a 10-year deal that will keep him with the Hurricanes until the 2021-22 season, Staal figures to remain a top-six forward for the Hurricanes for the foreseeable future. From a fantasy perspective, he now has two consecutive seasons in the mid- to upper 40-point range; however, if the team around him continues to improve with guys like Aho and Teravainen, you could see Staal wind up cracking the 50-point plateau as soon as next season.

  • Staal scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 4-2 win over Nashville. He's been on an offensive tear of late with seven points, including six assists, in his last six games. Staal could be available on the wire in deep leagues because of his overall stats (40 points in 62 games). Check.

  • Staal registered two assists, two shots on net, two hits and a plus-3 rating during Monday's win over the Islanders. The veteran center has turned in a respectable fantasy campaign with 13 goals and 38 points through 59 games. He's a key cog for the Hurricanes, and Carolina has four more games this week, so Staal is a potential grab in weekly settings or for owners desperate to pad their counting stats. Otherwise, Staal is nothing more than a middling asset in the majority of seasonal leagues.

  • Staal handed out two assists -- including on Sebastian Aho's game-winning power-play goal -- in Thursday's 4-3 victory over the Rangers. He'd been slumping recently, picking up a goal for his only point in the last six games. With 35 points on his line, it appears that Staal will -- for the fifth time in five years with Carolina -- fall short of the 50 points he put up (over just 62 games) in his final season as a Penguin, 2011-12. It would take a big-time hot streak for things to go otherwise, but he's shown precious few signs of such capabilities despite constantly skating prodigious minutes.

  • Staal misfired on six shot attempts Friday night in an overtime loss to the Avalanche. Staal gets an 'A' for effort for this home performance, which may have been excusable in the first place, given that he's racked up 16 points (four goals, 12 assists) in 18 games since the calendar flipped to 2017. Staal has the pedigree to continue thriving on Carolina's top line, so try not to get too caught up in the fact that he drops goose eggs in the scoring column every so often -- even elite skaters are prone to the occasional drought.
