  • Flyers' Marc Staal: Could return Saturday

    Staal (upper body) practiced in a regular jersey Friday and could be back in the lineup versus Vegas on Saturday, according to Bill Meltzer of

    Staal has missed the last 12 games after getting hurt Oct. 19 versus Edmonton. The 36-year-old will add a much-needed veteran presence to the Flyers blue line once he's given the green light. Staal was pointless in four games before his injury.

  • Flyers' Marc Staal: Still out Wednesday

    Staal (upper body) was at practice Tuesday but won't be an option to face Carolina on Wednesday, Sam Carchidi of Philly Hockey Now reports.

    Staal has missed the Flyers' last 11 contests, so he can be activated off injured reserve at any point. Even prior to his absence, the veteran blueliner was pointless through four games during which he managed just three shots. As such, few fantasy players figure to be impacted even once Staal is cleared to play.

  • Flyers' Marc Staal: On injured reserve

    Staal (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Friday, per CapFriendly.

    Staal is expected to miss 4-6 weeks, so he could eventually be a candidate for long-term injured reserve if the Flyers need cap space. Emil Andrae and Egor Zamula both figure to see larger roles while Staal is out.

  • Flyers' Marc Staal: Out 4-6 weeks

    Staal (upper body) is expected to miss 4-6 weeks after leaving Thursday's tilt against Edmonton early in the second period, according to Anthony DiMarco of The Fourth Period.

    Staal was pointless in his four games with the Flyers, blocking six shots over that span. Look for Egor Zamula to rejoin the lineup with Staal and Rasmus Ristolainen (undisclosed) sidelined.

  • Flyers' Marc Staal: Suffers upper-body injury

    Staal left Thursday's game versus Edmonton due to an upper-body injury and won't return.

    Staal, who logged 7:24 of ice time before exiting the contest, had four PIM, two hits and five blocks in three appearances before Thursday. If Staal can't play Saturday versus Dallas, then Egor Zamula might draw into the lineup.

  • Flyers' Marc Staal: Signs with Philadelphia

    Staal signed a one-year, $1.1 million contract with Philadelphia on Monday.

    Staal registered 15 points, 122 blocked shots and 152 hits in 82 games with Florida last season. The veteran blueliner will likely log plenty of penalty-kill time with the Flyers during the 2023-24 campaign while seeing action on the second or third defense pairing during even-strength situations.

  • Panthers' Marc Staal: Contributes assist Friday

    Staal logged an assist and two PIM in Friday's 4-3 overtime win over the Blackhawks.

    Staal has picked up two goals and two helpers over his last nine games, though this was the first time he took a minus rating in that span. The veteran defenseman doesn't typically pile up points, so he usually flies under the radar in fantasy. He's at two goals, eight assists, 116 hits, 99 blocked shots, 44 shots on net, 24 PIM and a plus-4 rating through 66 outings this season.

  • Panthers' Marc Staal: Scores in OT win

    Staal scored a goal on three shots in a 4-3 win over the Ducks on Monday.

    Staal tied the game 2-2 late in the second period, burying a feed from Matthew Tkachuk on the rush. Staal now has two goals in his last three games (his first two of the season) after logging just two points in his previous 30 contests. The 35-year-old blueliner shouldn't be relied on for much offensively, but he's been playing steady minutes in a second-pairing role. Staal is up to eight points, 108 hits, and 89 blocked shots through 60 games this season.

  • Panthers' Marc Staal: Posts rare helper

    Staal registered an assist in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Wild.

    Staal factored into the game's final tally, when Sam Reinhart supplied the empty-net dagger. The veteran defenseman has just five helpers representing his point total through 48 games this season, as he's best known for his shutdown role.

  • Panthers' Marc Staal: Produces assist in win

    Staal notched an assist in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Kraken.

    Staal was credited with the secondary helper on Carter Verhaeghe's opening goal at 13:00 of the first period. This was Staal's second helper in the last three games. The veteran defenseman has three assists, 19 shots on net, 48 hits, 28 blocked shots and a minus-7 rating in 25 contests overall as a third-pairing defensive specialist.

  • Panthers' Marc Staal: Grabs second helper

    Staal logged an assist in Tuesday's 6-2 loss to the Flames.

    The assist was Staal's second of the season, ending a nine-game point drought. The 35-year-old defenseman makes few contributions on offense, instead logging top-four minutes in a shutdown role. He's produced 19 shots on net, 24 blocked shots, 47 hits, six PIM and a minus-8 rating through 23 contests.

  • Panthers' Marc Staal: Collects first point of season

    Staal produced an assist, three hits and two PIM in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Ducks.

    Staal got on the scoresheet for the first time this year when he helped out on a Sam Reinhart goal early in the third period. Through 13 games, Staal has added 24 hits, 16 blocked shots, 10 shots on net, four PIM and a minus-4 rating. Even in his prime, he wasn't much of a scorer from the blue line, and at 35 years old, it's best not to expect too much offense from Staal.

  • Panthers' Marc Staal: Piling up hits and blocks

    Staal hasn't earned a point yet this season, but he has 15 blocks and 17 hits through nine games.
