Staal Named to Eastern All-Star Team

RALEIGH, NC—The National Hockey League today announced the Eastern Conference roster for the 2009 NHL All-Star Game. Carolina Hurricanes center and 2008 All-Star Game Most Valuable Player Eric Staal will make his third consecutive All-Star Game appearance on Jan. 25 at the Bell Centre in Montreal.

Staal, 24, currently leads the Hurricanes and ranks tied for 11th in the NHL with 18 goals this season, ranks first on the team with a plus-11 plus/minus rating and ranks second among Carolina players with 31 points. The Thunder Bay, Ont., native has played in 295 consecutive regular-season games for Carolina, and has missed just one NHL game since turning professional in 2003. Staal (6’4”, 215 lbs.) has scored 142 goals and earned 172 assists (314 points) in 368 regular-season games for the Hurricanes since the team drafted him in the first round, second overall, in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft.

Staal won the 2008 All-Star Game MVP award with two goals and an assist (3 points) in the Eastern Conference’s 8-7 triumph at Atlanta’s Philips Arena. At the 2007 All-Star Weekend in Dallas, he tied with Marian Hossa for first place in the most-accurate shot competition during the SuperSkills event. Staal also represented the Eastern Conference in the 2004 YoungStars game during the 2004 All-Star Weekend in Minnesota.
