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.

Carolina's best and worst defense pairings, 2013

Carolina fans should know this well but it takes a lot of trial and error to get the right line combos and defense pairings. Some trios click instantly (see the first line Tlusty-E.Staal-Semin) while others take more time to gel (see almost every bottom-six unit). This was especially the case last season with the team cycling through so many different players and they were basically...

Matt Karash: Canes prospect profile: Elias Lindholm

Elias Lindholm officially inked his entry-level deal yesterday afternoon. The team web site has video of media Q&A with him and Jim Rutherford at the signing. Biggest takeaway was Jim Rutherford seemed very confident that Lindholm would be playing at the NHL level this season. I regularly (and justifiably) get accused of being long-winded, so here is the real short version...

Inside Carolina's Special Teams Woes: the Power Play

In my analysis of the Hurricanes, most of my emphasis is placed on the team's performance at even strength. Why? Because the majority of the game is played there and it has been shown that owning the battle at even strength leads to more wins. However, special teams are just as important to consider. Some teams are able to get by with a sub-par special teams but it's very...

Hurricanes 2013 Development Camp Notes: Wednesday morning

In case you missed it, the Hurricanes were nice enough to stream today's morning practice from their player development camp on their web site. This year's camp features 26 players including the majority of their draft picks of the last few years along with a handful of undrafted players. It's tough to get a grip on all of these players because this was only a two hour...

Inside Carolina's Special teams Woes: The Penalty Kill

The other day, I went inside the numbers of the Hurricanes power play to see what the root of the problem was and determined that it wasn't nearly as bad as their 14.6% efficiency rating indicated. The power play had its issues, but they were creating chances pretty frequently and can probably rebound next year with a couple of personnel improvements and system tweaks. The penalty...
