FILE - In this Dec. 15, 2016, file photo, Minnesota Wild center Eric Staal (12) celebrates with Ryan Suter (20) after Staal scored a goal against the Nashville Predators during the first period of an NHL hockey game in Nashville, Tenn. Staal slumped last season, traded away from Carolina, the only NHL team he'd ever play for and finishing with 13 goals for his lowest total since his rookie year. But he has found a renaissance in Minnesota, leading the surging Wild in scoring as perhaps the best bargain from last summer's free agency. (AP Photo/Mark Humphrey, File)
