Hurricanes extend qualifying offer to five players
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

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
