He had points in 20 of the Hurricanes’ 25 postseason contests, establishing single-year franchise playoff records for assists (19), points (28), shots (87) and point-streak (15 games). Staal was Carolina’s first-round pick (2nd overall) in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft and has totaled 75 goals and 93 assists (168 points) in 209 games.

Williams, 25, is in his sixth NHL season and leads the Hurricanes in goals this season (21) and ranks third in points (41). A native of Cobourg, Ont., Williams is tied for second in the NHL in game-winning goals this season with six.
