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.
