Hurricanes sign youngest Staal brother to 1-year, 2-way contract

RALEIGH, N.C. - The Carolina Hurricanes have signed Jared Staal to a one-year, two-way contract.

The team announced the signing of the youngest of the four Staal brothers on Tuesday.

The right winger will make $550,000 on the NHL level or $60,000 in the minor leagues this season.

The 22-year-old Staal is the younger brother of team captain Eric Staal and forward Jordan Staal.

He spent most of last season in the minors, was brought up to the Hurricanes late last season and made his NHL debut April 25 — starting the game on a line with both of his brothers.

That marked the fourth time in league history that three brothers played for the same team during the same season.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
