    Wild's Eric Staal: Down year in 14th season

    Eric Staal registered 22 goals and 52 points in 81 games while averaging 18:08 of ice time this season.After a resurgent 74-point season last campaign, it was going to be tough for the 34-year-old to follow that up in 2018-19. The 52 points is the Ontario native's lowest mark in a season since the 2015-16 campaign. Staal is under contract for two more seasons with the Minnesota Wild following a contract extension he signed in February.

He's up to 22 goals and 30 helpers in 77 games, down from the 76 points he posted last season but still a strong campaign.

    Wild's Eric Staal: Secures two-year extension

    Eric Staal signed a two-year contract extension worth $3.25 million AAV on Monday, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.Staal will settle for a slight decrease in annual salary from the $3.5 million he averaged on his first three-year deal with the Minnesota Wild, but he'll gain security without having to hit free agency in July. The stalwart has played a vital role for the Wild as a top-six center with 88 goals and 182 points through 246 games. As one of the most revered centers in the game, he will continue to provide offensively in addition to helping the Wild maintain a veteran presence in the locker room, as the team keeps getting younger with the recent trade acquisitions of Ryan Donato and Kevin Fiala.

    Wild's Eric Staal: Helps Jared and Jordan score

    Eric Staal dished out two assists -- one on the power play -- in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Rangers.Staal helped the Minnesota Wild snap a 171-minute goal drought with his assist on Jared Spurgeon's first-period tally, then added a second helper on Jordan Greenway's empty-netter. He was also largely responsible for Zach Parise's unassisted third-period goal, as Staal's uncalled trip on Rangers defenseman Brady Skjei forced Skjei to cough up the puck to Parise all alone in front. This effort snaps a nine-game point drought for the veteran center.

    Wild's Eric Staal: Enduring slump

    Eric Staal is pointless while averaging 18:29 of ice time in his past five games.The 34-year-old center has certainly slowed down following a 42-goal campaign in 2017-18. It's unclear what has led to the slump, but it's certainly not a lack of opportunity, as Staal has been averaging 2:51 of power-play time in his last five games. Though he's struggling as of late, it would be smart to stick with Staal, as he's still on track for his third straight 60-point campaign.
