Hurricanes Agree to Terms with Jared Staal
The youngest Staal brother agrees to a one-year deal.
RALEIGH, NCRon Francis, Executive Vice President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has agreed to terms with right wing Jared Staal on a one-year, two-way contract. The deal will pay Staal $550,000 on the NHL level, or $65,000 on the American Hockey League (AHL) level, during the 2014-15 season.

Staal, 23, played in 50 games with the AHL’s Charlotte Checkers in 2013-14, notching two goals and earning five assists (7 points). The Thunder Bay, Ont., native has scored 10 goals and earned 15 assists (25 points) in 169 career AHL regular-season games with San Antonio, Providence and Charlotte.

Selected by the Phoenix Coyotes in the second round, 49th overall, in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, Staal (6’4”, 214 lbs.) was acquired by the Hurricanes on May 13, 2010, in exchange for a fifth-round pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. He made his NHL debut on April 25, 2013, and has played in two career NHL games with Carolina.
