  • Staal agreed to terms on a professional tryout agreement with AHL Iowa on Thursday. To be clear, Staal is reportedly not trying to break into the NHL but rather earn a spot with Team Canada for the 2022 Winter Olympics. In 53 games for Buffalo and Montreal last year, the 37-year-old veteran garnered five goals and eight helpers, far off the 70-point mark he hit in eight of his 17 NHL seasons. Still, if Staal were to impress at the Olympics, perhaps he could draw some interest from an NHL club or two.

  • Staal scored a goal and added three hits in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Golden Knights in Game 5. Staal received a pass from Nick Suzuki and scored in the second period. The 36-year-old Staal snapped his five-game point drought with the tally. He's been limited to fourth-line duties in the playoffs, but he's stick picked up eight points, 14 shots on net, 13 hits and a plus-3 rating in 15 outings.

  • Staal notched an assist in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Jets in Game 3. Staal set up Corey Perry for the opening goal 4:45 into the game. Through nine playoff outings, Staal has racked up a goal and six helpers. The veteran center has been limited to a bottom-six role, but he's been productive. That could make him a solid value pick in DFS for Monday's Game 4.

  • Staal recorded two assists in Monday's 3-1 win over the Maple Leafs in Game 7. Staal set up the opening tally by Brendan Gallagher in the second period and Tyler Toffoli's empty-netter in the third. Through six playoff appearances, Staal has provided four assists, six shots on net, seven hits and a plus-1 rating. He's been limited to bottom-six duties, but the veteran center provides leadership and experience to the Canadiens' younger forwards.
