Stajan has three goals and 12 assists in 41 games this year.

EDGE Analysis

15 points over half a season is nothing to get excited about, but it's important to note that Stajan had just 17 over 80 games last year. That's a marked improvement for the 32-year-old, who's averaging his most ice time (13:11) in three years and sits second on the team with a plus-7 rating.

Stajan contributed a goal and two assists in Sunday's blowout win over the Ducks.

EDGE Analysis

It was the third goal of the season for Stajan, who brought the offense in an 8-3 win. The 32-year-old is up to 10 points in 28 games on a surging Flames squad that has won three straight. Stajan has a history of being inconsistent and plays on the third line, so given the fact he doesn't see power-play time, he's only valuable in some deeper leagues.

Stajan scored a first-period goal on his only shot on net during Wednesday's win over Toronto.

EDGE Analysis

It was just the second goal of the season for Stajan, and the 32-year-old veteran has only seven points through 26 games this season. Stajan entered Wednesday's game averaging just 13:30 of ice per night and starting 66.0 percent of his shifts in the defensive zone. It isn't a recipe for fantasy success, and he can be ignored in the vast majority of fantasy settings.

Stajan has gone eight games without a point and has just four assists on the season.

EDGE Analysis

The lack of production shouldn't come as much of a surprise from the 32-year-old, as he found his way onto the scoresheet just 17 times in 80 games last year. At this point, those holding out for a return to his 55-point Maple Leaf days from 2009 would be best served forgetting about such things, as Stajan isn't likely to make many fantasy waves anytime soon given his downward career trajectory.

Stajan dished out an assist in Tuesday's overtime victory over the visiting Sabre

EDGE Analysis

Not much of a fantasy factor these days, the 32-year-old now has a pair of points in four games to start the season. Stajan managed just 17 points across 80 contests in 2015-16 while averaging 12:42 of ice time and hardly shoots the puck (52 SOG last year), so anyone still clinging to hope for a return to his 57-point form from 2009-10 would be wise to move on.

Stajan recorded three assists -- one shorthanded -- and a plus-4 rating in Thursday's 7-3 victory over the Canucks.

EDGE Analysis

Surely one was not expecting Stajan to erupt for his first multi-point outing of the season, especially in the second-to-last game of the year. Well, that happened, and it was also (easily) the 32-year-olds best rating to date. With this explosion, the veteran has equaled his last campaign at 17 points.

Stajan (face) returned to game action Saturday, but recorded just one shot on goal and saw just 8:10 of ice time against the Blackhawks.

EDGE Analysis

Stajan remains off the fantasy radar in the majority of leagues, notching just 14 points in 73 contests this season. He appears to be good to go moving forward, so injury shouldn't be a concern for those looking to add him to daily lineups or in the deepest of season-long leagues.

Stajan left Thursday's game against the Wild after taking an elbow to the face, Kristen Odland of Postmedia reports.

EDGE Analysis

No update was offered on Stajan following the contest, but his situation should be revealed in the next couple days. The 32-year-old doesn't provide much production, so an absence beyond Thursday still shouldn't have much impact on fantasy leagues.

Stajan netted a shorthanded goal in Monday's loss to the Maple Leafs.

EDGE Analysis

On a night the Flames lost by three goals, Stajan actually had a fairly productive night with a plus-1 rating, a pair of hits, and winning eight of 15 faceoffs. The 32-year-old has occupied the team's fourth line for much of the season though, so he won't provide much fantasy value on a consistent basis.

Stajan did not play in Monday's 6-4 loss to Anaheim, with "maintenance" listed as the reason, Scott Cruickshank of the Calgary Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Whether it was a healthy scratch or not, Stajan has really struggled to produce this season and has not scored a point since Jan. 5. He has been relegated to fourth-line status and may get usurped by Markus Granlund in that role if he's not careful.
