Eric Staal nominated for NHL's King Clancy award

Posted April 26, 2013

— The Carolina Hurricanes announced Friday that captain Eric Staal has been nominated by his teammates for the NHL's King Clancy Memorial Trophy, an annual award for the player who best exemplifies leadership qualities on and off the ice and has made a noteworthy contribution in his community. 

The nomination is Staal's third. 

In 2013, Staal celebrated the fifth year of the "Eric's Entrourage" program, in which he purchases a luxury suite equipped with food, snacks and drinks and donates it to local children's charities for each home game. 

Along with "Eric's Entourage," Staal is an integral part of Carolina's Kids N' Community Foundation and its fundraising efforts. 

On the ice, Staal leads the Hurricanes and is tied for sixth in the NHL in scoring with 51 points in 47 games. He has 33 assists and is second on the team with 18 goals. 

Staal earned his 600th career point March 5 against Buffalo.

    Congrats to Eric. He's been with the Canes for 10 years - hard to believe.
