  • Hurricanes Sign Jordan Staal To 10 Year $60 Million

    Hurricanes sign Jordan Staal to 10-year, $60M deal - Yahoo! Sports

    RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- The Carolina Hurricanes started free agency by locking up their big trade acquisition for the long haul and bringing back a familiar face. They might not be done there.

    But the biggest news of the day was the long-term signing of Staal. He will make $6 million per year under the deal, which begins with the 2013-14 season. He is due to make $4.5 million this season.

    Staal turned down a 10-year offer from Pittsburgh two weeks ago, and that decision precipitated the trade to Carolina in exchange for center Brandon Sutter, defensive prospect Brian Dumoulin and the No. 8 pick in the draft.
