The Rangers defenseman may have wanted to avoid hockey talk the past couple of seasons when the Staal brothers gathered at their parents' home in Thunder Bay, Ontario. There was the concussion he suffered on Feb. 7, 2011 -- on a hit delivered by older brother Eric, no less -- that cost Marc...

Alex Edler Leaves Eric Staal in Ton of Pain After Knee-on-Knee Hit at World Championships

The NHL season may be over for 22 teams, but that doesn’t mean the hockey has stopped for players on the 22 teams who aren’t lucky enough to still be playing for the Stanley Cup. The world championships are going on right now, and there is plenty of NHL representation. At least one team must be hating that fact right now.
