Staal Named to Second Consecutive All-Star Game

Center will represent Eastern Conference Jan. 27 in Atlanta

RALEIGH, NC— The National Hockey League today announced that Hurricanes center Eric Staal has been named to the Eastern Conference team for the 2008 NHL All-Star Game, to be held Sunday, Jan. 27 in Atlanta.

Staal, 23, currently ranks tied for eighth in the NHL in goals (23), tied for fourth in game-winning goals (5) and tied for fifth in power-play goals (10). The Thunder Bay, Ont., native ranks tied for second among Hurricanes skaters in scoring this season with 41 points, which is tied for 27th-best in the league. Staal, who was named an alternate captain for the Hurricanes prior to the season, played in his 218th consecutive regular-season game for Carolina on Thursday night against New Jersey, matching the second-longest games played streak in franchise history (Pat Verbeek, Feb. 27, 1992-March 22, 1995).

Originally drafted second overall by the Hurricanes in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft, Staal has totaled 109 goals and 133 assists (242 points) in 291 career games with Carolina. He led the NHL in scoring during the 2006 Playoffs, tallying nine goals and 19 assists (28 points) as Carolina captured the Stanley Cup.
