  • Wild's Eric Staal: Left exposed for expansion draft

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/18/17) Staal was left unprotected by the Wild ahead of Wednesday's expansion draft, TSN reports.

    The veteran center played a full 82 games during the 2016 campaign, marking the first time he's accomplished that feat in six years. He turned that into 28 goals and 37 assists, which was yet another solid showing for Staal despite going on 32 years old. Staal is currently on a favorable contract and now that he's unprotected, there's a chance he eventually ends up in Vegas following the expansion draft Wednesday.

    Wild's Eric Staal: Medically cleared from concussion

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/16/17) Staal (concussion) has been medically cleared after passing all baseline tests and will be able to train as normal during the offseason, Michael Russo of the Star Tribune reports.

    A collision with the boards like the one Staal endured can sometimes be career-threatening, so hearing that he is completely healthy at this point should be a relief to hockey fans everywhere. The veteran center enjoyed another productive season in 2016-17, as he was able to suit up for all 82 regular-season games for the first time since the 2011-12 campaign, posting his highest point total (65) since then in the process.

    Wild's Eric Staal: Diagnosed with concussion

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/23/17) Staal sustained a concussion but did not suffer any other injuries during Game 5 against the Blues, Michael Russo of the Star Tribune reports.

    By the look of it, Staal's injury could have been a lot worse, so the 32-year-old pivot should be thankful that he walked away with only a concussion. With Minnesota's season over, Staal will have plenty of time to rehab and there's no reason to think he won't be able to play once training camp rolls around this fall.

    Wild's Eric Staal: Taken to hospital

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/22/17) Staal was taken to the hospital after crashing headfirst into the boards during Saturday's Game 5 against the Blues. He will not return.

    According to the NBC broadcast, Staal was alert and stable, which is a good thing. However, even if the Wild avoid elimination Saturday, Staal may not be able to return for Game 6.

    Wild's Eric Staal: Leaves game with head injury

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/22/17) Staal was forced to exit Saturday's Game 5 matchup with the Blues after sustaining an apparent injury upon crashing headfirst into the boards.

    The incident was quite scary, and it seems unlikely Staal will be able to return for this game, and perhaps not for any future games in this series. Perhaps luck will be on Staal's side, but for now it doesn't look like he will be back for Game 5, and that certainly hurts Minnesota's chances of staving off elimination.
