Hurricanes open with Staal-Staal-Staal line in home finale against Rangers

RALEIGH, N.C. - The Carolina Hurricanes put all their Staals in their starting lineup.

The Hurricanes had brothers Eric, Jordan and Jared Staal on the line that started the game Thursday night against the New York Rangers.

Jared Staal was called up from Charlotte of the AHL on Wednesday and coach Kirk Muller said he probably would skate on Jordan's line.

But Muller pulled a game-time surprise by putting all three on the starting line.

STATS says it's the 10th time in the history of the four major North American pro sports leagues that three brothers have played for the same team during the same season. It hasn't happened since the Stastnys (Peter, Anton and Marian) all played for the Quebec Nordiques in 1985.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
