  • Wild's Eric Staal: Helps Jared and Jordan score

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12:07 am ET) Staal dished out two assists -- one on the power play -- in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Rangers.

    Staal helped the 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

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/12/19) 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.

    Wild's Eric Staal: Leads charge against Avs

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/24/19) Staal scored two goals, one on the power play, and added an assist in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Avalanche.

    The veteran has been on fire heading into the All-Star break, racking up four goals and 10 points in his last eight games. Staal is on pace to fall just short of his third straight 60-point campaign, but if he picks up where he left off when the Wild are back in action Feb. 1, he could make up that ground quickly.

    Wild's Eric Staal: Approaching career milestone

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/21/19) Staal generated a goal and an assist in Monday's 4-2 win over the Golden Knights.

    The venerable pivot needs only five more points to reach 1,000 in an illustrious career that's been split between the Hurricanes, Rangers and Wild. Staal remains a high-volume shooter with a top-line role, so don't forget about the 34-year-old when constructing daily lineups; he's reasonably priced on all the main DFS sites.

    Wild's Eric Staal: Shows spark in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/15/19) Staal recorded two assists in Monday's 7-4 loss to the Flyers.

    The veteran center had only two points (both helpers) in six games to begin 2019, so this performance was a welcome sight. Unsurprisingly, Staal hasn't come close to repeating his 42-goal, 76-point pace from last season, but his 13 goals and 29 points through 44 games is likely a bit of a disappointment even for those fantasy GMs who managed to keep their expectations in check.
