Written by Seth Rorabaugh on .

When the Penguins open the season Oct. 7 against the Flyers, they'll do so without Jordan Staal (above) for the first time in 302 regular season games. The last time Staal wasn't in the lineup was Dec. 5, 2006 when he was a healthy scratch for a 3-2 loss to the Panthers.

Since then, 78 different players can claim they have been teammates with Staal. That's how many players have appeared in at least in one of those games. Here they are broken down by games:
