Staal potted a pair of goals in Thursday night's 4-2 home win over the Blackhawks.

EDGE Analysis

It was looking like a slow fantasy night for the venerable centerman, but then he recorded the game's final two goals, including an empty-netter to seal the victory. Staal continues to be a beast for fantasy owners, amassing eight goals and 12 assists at even strength, though he's only notched three power-play points to keep him out elite pack of offensive producers.

Staal scored for the second straight game and added two assists in Thursday's win over the Predators.

EDGE Analysis

Staal has been on fire recently, managing three goals and nine points in his last six games. His goal Thursday came with the man advantage and was his first power-play marker of the season. The veteran is showing there's still plenty of gas left in the tank with 17 points through the first 18 games. The second-line center has built off a solid 28-goal debut season with Minnesota and is delivering once again this time around. Take full advantage.

Staal registered a goal and an assist during Tuesday's 3-0 win over Philadelphia.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran is in the midst of a mini heater with two goals, four assists and 13 shots through his past five games, and he's now up to a respectable 14 points through 17 contests for the campaign. Staal's offensive resurgence with the Wild still might not be fully appreciated in all fantasy circles, as he's locked into a go-to scoring role and checks out as a reliable asset in the majority of settings. There could be buy-low opportunities out there.

Staal had the assist on both goals in a 4-2 loss to Toronto on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Despite his team's issues with finding the net, Staal got his job done by finding Jason Zucker twice in the loss. He's as trustworthy as forwards come in terms of fantasy purposes.

Staal registered a rare shorthanded goal in Monday's 5-3 road loss to the Bruins.

EDGE Analysis

This was Staal's second shorthanded goal of the young season and No. 19 over his illustrious career. Supporting his fantasy owners to the tune of five goals and four assists through 13 games, the Thunder Bay, Ontario native is used in all situations and has a relatively high floor in the fantasy realm.

Staal scored a shorthanded goal and added a shorthanded assist while firing four shots in Thursday's 6-4 win over the Islanders.

EDGE Analysis

Staal's unassisted shortie gave the hosts a 3-0 lead just 7:26 into the game. The veteran forward's been putting the puck on frame early and often with multiple shots on goal in all eight games played this season. He's also lit the lamp in half of those contests.

Staal scored a goal and added an assist in a 5-4 shootout loss to the Hurricanes on Saturday night.

EDGE Analysis

Staal is off to a solid start after his amazing 2016-17. It remains to be seen if he can do that again, but even if not, the eldest Staal is a solid fantasy play in most formats.

Staal was left unprotected by the Wild ahead of Wednesday's NHL expansion draft, TSN reports.

EDGE Analysis

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.

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.

EDGE Analysis

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 and, as such, posted his highest point total (65) since then as well.
