Staal collected two assists through 22:13 of ice time (2:56 on the power play) during Thursday's 6-4 loss to the Islanders.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran is scorching hot with two goals and eight points through his past four games, as he's clearly hit full stride centering Sebastian Aho and Teuvo Teravainen. Staal's 2:58 of power-play time is the most he's received since joining Carolina, and the 29-year-old center is also firing a career-high 2.53 shots per game this season. Now up to 15 points through 17 games, the 29-year-old pivot is well within reach of posting his best offensive season since joining the Hurricanes in 2012-13.

Staal registered four assists during Monday's 5-1 win over Dallas.

EDGE Analysis

The big showing improves Staal to six goals and seven assists through his past 13 games, as the veteran center has found an offensive groove centering Sebastian Aho and Teuvo Teravainen. Carolina is loaded with young talents, and Staal is being turned to as go-to scorer for one of the first times in his career. Don't sleep on the veteran center.

Staal came up huge with two goals in Friday's 3-1 road win over the Blue Jackets.

EDGE Analysis

Staal's been granted more ice time lately, and he's responding in the way that you'd expect. Now, he's up to nine points in 14 games, but remember, four of those points came in a single contest. The Ontario native can blow up at any given time, but he's boom or bust in daily fantasy settings.

Staal potted his fourth goal of the season and fired six shots on goal in Saturday's loss to Arizona.

EDGE Analysis

Staal is now up to seven points in 12 games and is having a streaky start to the campaign. He won't post monstrous totals, but as the team's top-line center, Staal has showcased over the past few seasons that he's a fairly consistent point-producer who can be trusted in deeper leagues. The scoring sometimes comes in bunches, but Staal is typically a solid 40-50 point guy.

Staal has been held off the scoresheet in his last three games, and seven of nine games since the start of the season.

EDGE Analysis

Staal's current output of five points doesn't impress much when you consider four of those points came in a single game (Oct. 17 against the Oilers). Staal's total point production has been in the mid-40's in each of the past two seasons, and given his current clip, he should hit that mark again in the current campaign. However, fantasy owners should expect that scoring to come in bursts, followed by longer droughts of inactivity. If you stay the course, your expectations should be rewarded by season's end.

Staal scored a short-handed goal and picked up three assists -- two on the power play -- in a 5-3 win over the Oilers on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Staal had been held without a point in his first three contests to open the new season, but posting four points is a great way to end that skid. However, it looks like this performance might simply be a blip on the radar for the 29-year-old forward; over the last two games, he's recorded just two shots on goal and has seen his ice time drop from 21:55 on Opening Night to just 17:48 during his big night against Edmonton.

Staal registered zero points and just two shots on goal in Saturday's 5-4 shootout win over the Wild.

EDGE Analysis

The good news is, Staal saw plenty of ice time in the season opener -- 21:55 including 4:28 on the power play -- centering the Canes' top line in between Sebastian Aho and Elias Lindholm. As long as he continues to see monster minutes like this, fantasy owners should not worry about a dropoff in production. Staal has delivered point totals in the 45-50 point range in three of the past four seasons, making him a very dependable fantasy commodity. Start him with confidence.

Staal closed the season with a pair of assists in his last two contests, bringing his regular-season tally to 45 points in 75 games.

EDGE Analysis

Staal was once again the Hurricanes' top center for most of the season, skating mostly with newcomers Teuvo Teravainen and Sebastian Aho. Now halfway through a 10-year deal that will keep him with the Hurricanes until the 2021-22 season, Staal figures to remain a top-six forward for the Hurricanes for the foreseeable future. From a fantasy perspective, he now has two consecutive seasons in the mid- to upper 40-point range; however, if the team around him continues to improve with guys like Aho and Teravainen, you could see Staal wind up cracking the 50-point plateau as soon as next season.

Staal scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 4-2 win over Nashville.

EDGE Analysis

He's been on an offensive tear of late with seven points, including six assists, in his last six games. Staal could be available on the wire because of his overall stats (40 points in 62 games). Check.

Staal registered two assists, two shots on net, two hits and a plus-3 rating during Monday's win over the Islanders.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran center has turned in a respectable fantasy campaign with 13 goals and 38 points through 59 games. He's a key cog for the Hurricanes, and Carolina has four more games this week, so Staal is a potential grab in weekly settings or for owners desperate to pad their counting stats. Otherwise, Staal is nothing more than a middling asset in the majority of seasonal leagues.
