The Carolina Hurricanes on Wednesday extended qualifying offers to forwards Zach Boychuk, Zac Dalpe, Riley Nash and Jared Staal, and defenseman Michal Jordan.

The Carolina Hurricanes on Wednesday extended qualifying offers to forwards Zach Boychuk, Zac Dalpe, Riley Nash and Jared Staal, and defenseman Michal Jordan.

All five played at least part of the 2012-13 season with the Hurricanes. Nash played the most, seeing action in 32 of Carolina's 48 games. Jordan and Staal made their NHL debut.

Forward Brett Sutter and Brett Bellemore were slated to become unrestricted free agents on July 5, but the Hurricanes signed them to one-year contracts before the end of June.

The Hurricanes did not make qualifying offers to forwards AJ Jenks, Andreas Nodl and Luke Pither, defensemen Justin Krueger and Joe Sova, and goaltender John Muse. Each will become an unrestricted free agent Friday.

Quote of the Day

I loved being in the jerseys again and they worked some magic for us. It was weird in warm-ups, seeing No. 22 in that jersey and thinking he’s [Mike Gartner], and No. 8 reminds you of Danny Briere … every number had me thinking back to the guys who wore them and smiling.
