Pittsburgh Penguins center Jordan Staal has turned down a 10-year offer to remain with the team, The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported, citing sources.
The 23-year-old, entering a final year of a four-year $16 million contract, has told team officials he is willing to sign with the Carolina Hurricanes if the team can organize a trade. Staal would become an unrestricted free-agent at the end of next season if no deal was made.
While terms of the 10-year offer were not disclosed, the contract extension was reportedly worth around $60 million.
"My only comments will be that Jordan is not prepared to enter into a contract extension at this time," Staal's agent, Paul Krepelka, told the Tribune-Review.
Staal's brother Eric is a prospect already playing in the Hurricanes system.
BEST OF MAXIM
The Pittsburgh Penguins offered Jordan Staal a contract in the 10 year range, according to multiple sources. They had every intention on locking him up and keeping him in Pittsburgh for the rest of his career.

Here we are, holding up the tail in regards to the trade. Are we the last blog on the planet to mention it? It sure is possible. I don’t really want to talk about the return. I don’t want to talk about how Jordan Staal was sooooo dreamy. I don’t want to talk about puck [...]
Quick thoughts on the big deal...
I like aggressive.
I like trying to win now. The team needs to.
And I like Jordan Staal as a solid 2-way proven NHL center with size.
The dreamer in me hoped that the Canes could put together a big enough package of futures that we could slot Brandon Sutter at the 2nd or 3rd center slot. But to get a player like Jordan Staal, you can...
The Carolina Hurricanes have signed new center Jordan Staal to a 10-year contract extension.
The Hurricanes marked the start of the free agency period Sunday by announcing a long-term deal for the star player they acquired from Pittsburgh in a draft-day trade just over a week ago.

The Pittsburgh Penguins made the biggest noise at the NHL entry draft yesterday trading Jordan Staal to the Carolina Hurricanes for Brandon Sutter, the 8th overall pick which they used to draft defenseman Derrick Pouliot and defense prospect Brian Dumoulin.
Essentially this trade comes down to the Penguins trading their 3rd line center Jordan Staal, who wants to be a first or second...
It's not quite like LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh all getting together for a so-called "summit" to decide that they, all unrestricted free agents in the same year, wanted to play together in Miami.
But the concept is somewhat similar when Jordan Staal rejected a 10-year contract offer from the Pittsburgh Penguins last week because, in part, it meant the...

Day one is completed, and the first round of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft was interesting to say the least.
Several trades highlighted the evening, as Pittsburgh traded Jordan Staal to Carolina in exchange for Brandon Sutter, the eighth overall selection, and Brian Doumulin. The Washington Capitals acquired Mike Rebeiro for Cody Eakin and the 54th overall...
