Stajan agreed to terms on a one-year contract with DEL club EHC Munchen on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

In 1003 NHL contests split between the Maple Leafs and Flames, Stajan racked up 146 goals, 267 assists and 526 PIM. The center was limited to just 68 games last year and failed to reach the 15-point mark for the first time in his career. The move overseas likely marks the end of the 2002 second-round pick's time in the NHL.

Stajan notched four goals and a career-low 12 points through 68 games in 2017-18.

EDGE Analysis

At one point, Stajan was a top-six center that racked up over 50 points twice in his career. However, in his eighth full season with the Flames, Stajan has been relegated to a fourth-line role where he played less than 11 minutes per game. Stajan is making $3.125 million per year, and he's set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer and will likely take a hefty pay cut on his next contract.

Stajan registered three shots through 8:47 of ice time (4:07 while shorthanded) during Tuesday's 2-0 loss to Dallas.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran has actually begun to show an uptick in offense this month with two goals and four assists through 14 February games. However, Tuesday's usage highlights his lack of upside. Stajan is averaging 1:36 of shorthanded ice time per game, starting 61.2 percent of his five-on-five shifts in the defensive zone and centering the fourth line.

Stajan recorded a minus-2 rating through 10:20 of ice time during Sunday's 3-2 win over the Islanders.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran has provided a modest uptick in offense with two goals and an assist through his past six games, but Sunday's poor outing was more representative of how his season has gone. After all, among all forwards in the league with at least 500 minutes of ice time, Stajan's 0.59 points per hour rank third last. It's safe to continue fading him in all fantasy settings.

Stajan notched one assist in Sunday's 6-1 victory over Vancouver.

EDGE Analysis

In the second period Stajan was able to send a cross-ice feed to find Mark Giordano who buried the pass on his backhand giving Stajan his first points of 2017-18, and ending a 29 game pointless streak dating back to last season. Despite the lack of points Stajan has been averaging 11:04 of ice time while logging 31 hits on the year, and since the 33-year-old notched 23 points in 2016-17, perhaps this will be the offensive spark he needed to start seeing his name on the scoresheet this season.

Stajan was a healthy scratch for Tuesday's 5-3 loss to Vancouver.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran center has suited up for 12 games this season and is still looking for his first point. At this stage of Stajan's career, he's locked into a depth role and offers very little fantasy value.

Stajan will watch Saturday's game against the Wild from the press box, Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran center isn't injured, but he's certainly experienced his share of struggles in the infancy of the 2017-18 campaign. Specifically, he's been held without a single point and has a minus-3 rating through six games. Perhaps resting and watching the game from a different vantage point will help him get back on track for the next contest.

Stajan finished with a minus-1 rating through 13:49 of ice time during Friday's 6-0 loss to Ottawa. He still hasn't recorded a point this season.

EDGE Analysis

Stajan is a defense-first depth center for the Flames, and he last posted a double-digit goal total in 2013-14. The 33-year-old veteran is off the fantasy radar in the majority of settings, and it's unlikely that changes given his limited offensive upside.

Stajan collected an assist during Wednesday's loss to Boston.

EDGE Analysis

Make it two games in a row that the veteran center has marked the assist column. However, Stajan is locked into a fourth-line role and has notched just five goals and 22 points through 70 games for the season. His fantasy value is extremely limited, and you'll likely want to continue to aim higher in all settings.

Stajan chipped in an assist in Wednesday's 5-1 win over the visiting Wild.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran snapped a 10-game point drought with the apple, a span in which he only managed seven shots on goal while averaging 11:58 of ice time. Stajan now has 17 points -- the exact same total he put up in each of the previous two seasons -- so additional production from here on out should be gravy for anyone in deeper leagues that opted to roll with him this year.
