Jared Staal to join older brothers with Hurricanes

Posted April 24, 2013

Extended interview:  Jared Staal

Three Staals will take the ice for the Carolina Hurricanes Thursday against the New York Rangers, as the team announced Thursday that right winger Jared Staal has been recalled from the Charlotte Checkers.

Staal's NHL debut against the Rangers will also mark only the fourth time a trio of brothers has played in a game for an NHL team, the Hurricanes said. 

Jared Staal, 22, has played in 52 games for the Checkers this season, scoring four goals and handing out three assists. He is in his fifth professional season. 

The Hurricanes acquired Staal from Phoenix in 2010 in exchange for a fifth-round pick in the NHL Entry Draft.

    And playing against Marc. By the way...when will Marc be joing the Canes?

    Would be cool to have them all on the ice in the same game, but M. Staal is still on IR.

    That's right! So, it's 3 against 1. The Rangers may still win. Would LOVE to see the Canes get Marc, but doubt it will happen.

    Just read your post after I posted mine. Too bad - it would have been entertaining to see all four Staal brothers on the ice.

    only 7 points in 53 games?
    Why is he being called up?

    "only 7 points in 53 games?

    its the end of the season and they are out of the playoffs..they are doing it as a courtesy to Eric, Jordan, and the Staal family...actually a nice gesture.

    Because he brings more intangibles to the game at age 22 than just scoring. he's a big guy, he hits, defends well, has a great presence on the ice on his line. he's a 3rd or 4th liner whose job isn't to score but to bring energy to the team with big hitting and grinding down the opponents. He is also still considered a developmental player meaning he will go up and down all the time, and perhaps he's being called up in the last game of the season just to see how he would do against a bubble team in a high pressure situation where in it doesn't matter for the canes in anything except momentum and a win for next year, but in a situation where they could play spoiler to the rangers and maybe just hand them a loss putting the NY team in a struggling mental state. One could speculate on this for hours on why.
