Carolina Hurricanes activate star centre Eric Staal from injured reserve

RALEIGH, N.C. - The Carolina Hurricanes activated Eric Staal from injured reserve Wednesday after the star centre missed 10 games with an upper-body injury.

Staal had been sidelined since the injury forced him from the team's game Nov. 1 against San Jose. He had played in 349 consecutive games, the third-longest among active NHL skaters, before he was forced to sit.

The 25-year-old scored three goals with two assists in Carolina's first 13 games. He has 167 goals and 196 assists in 422 career games.

The Hurricanes are at Anaheim on Wednesday night.
