Jared Staal to join older brothers with Hurricanes
Posted April 24, 2013
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.
