Matt Stajan points to the heavens for all the right reasons

The "pointing to the heavens" thing after registering some sort of point in sports may be overdone, but Tomas Tatar (who lost his dad) and now Matt Stajan have gone about the procedure for the right reasons, as the Hockey News's Casey Ippolito ntoes:

It’s been a difficult time for Calgary Flames center Matt Stajan.

Following the death of his newborn son, Stajan took a personal leave to grieve with his wife, Katie. The Flames gave him the option to take the rest of the season off. After all, the Flames are basement dwellers, and Stajan’s future in Calgary was secured with a recent contract extension. But Stajan, loyal to the game he loves as he is to his family, rejoined the flames after a couple weeks. After an eight-game absence, he returned to the Flames lineup.

Saturday night against the Edmonton Oilers, Stajan found himself with a penalty shot. He walked in and made a slick move on Viktor Fasth, scoring on the backhand. In the moments that followed, Stajan’s teammates congratulated him, acknowledging a moment that was much bigger than the game.

“He hurt his shoulder,” said assistant general manager Jay Feaster. “He was examined here tonight. Obviously couldn’t come back. But we won’t know exactly the extent of it until he sees the doctors back in Calgary.”

Stajan suffered the injury near the Calgary bench in the first period when he was reaching for the puck.

Stajan Suffers Eye Injury During Soccer Warmup

from David Shoalts of the Globe and Mail,

Matt Stajan spent Sunday in a hospital with an eye injury and he will be lost to the Toronto Maple Leafs for at least a week as the result of a rowdy soccer game.

Stajan, the Leafs’ No. 1 centre, was hit on the eye with a soccer ball before the Leafs’ practice on Saturday during a warmup exercise common to NHL teams. Players gather in a circle and try to keep the ball in the air as long as possible by kicking or heading it. If a player allows the ball to hit the floor he is out of the game and the game ends when no players are left.
