Bio

Eric Staal Bio

Eric, the oldest of the four hockey-playing Staal brothers, is a member of hockey's Triple Gold Club: He won a gold medal at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics and an IIHF World Championship in 2007 with Canada, and he helped the Carolina Hurricanes win the Stanley Cup in 2006.

Staal spent a decade rewriting the Hurricanes record book. After being selected by Carolina with the No. 2 pick in the 2003 NHL Draft, his great hands and 6-foot-4 frame helped him jump from junior hockey to the NHL as a 19-year-old. He played 81 games during the 2003-04 season, finishing ninth among rookies with 31 points. Staal also played in the YoungStars Game during NHL All-Star Weekend and finished 15th in voting for the Calder Trophy.
