It is no secret, Eric Staal is one of the best and most consistent players to ever lace up his skates in the National Hockey League. He has won the Stanley Cup and an Olympic Gold Medal but Staal is close to another pretty incredible milestone this season.
Staal who currently stands at 867 career points in the NHL should hit the impressive 900 career points this season. He is also getting closer and closer to 400 career goals but the 900 points seems more realistic in terms of reaching this season. Staal who has been in the league since 2004 is not showing any rust or age with already 21 points in 23 games. What a player Staal also have 44 playoffs points in 54 games which is also an unbelievable accomplishment. What do you think of Eric Staal? Many Wild fans were unsure of his arrival with the team after putting an OK performance with the New York Rangers.
