  • Jordan Staal to miss 3-4 months with broken leg

    Canes Country "It might not be the absolute worst-case scenario, but for the Carolina Hurricanes, losing Jordan Staal for the rest of 2014 is near the top of that list. The team announced Thursday that Staal, who has played every game for the club since his 2012 trade from the Pittsburgh Penguins, will miss..." September 25

  • Jordan Staal suffers broken leg in pre-season game

    The Hockey News "If the Carolina Hurricanes are going to make the playoffs this season, a lot of things need to go just right for them.

  • Tlusty, Jordan Staal obtain their goals for Canes

    Raleigh News & Observer "The zeroes were becoming conspicuous hard to ignore and even harder to explain. In the first eight games of the Carolina Hurricanes’ season Jiri Tlusty and Jordan Staal had zero goals. Both forwards had done their part in games grinding it out in the defensive zone forechecking giving the..." October 21

  • For Canes’ Jordan Staal, a bittersweet return to Pittsburgh

    Raleigh News & Observer "The Carolina Hurricanes’ season will finish Saturday in Pittsburgh. What began with promise will end in disappointment, with the Canes again missing the Stanley Cup playoffs. That the final game will be played in the Penguins’ Consol Energy Center adds a twist. Canes center Jordan Staal last..." April 27

  • If you see Jordan..

    PensBurgh "Good news for the Carolina Hurricanes, according to NHL.com they're about to get four players back tonight, including Jeff Skinner. The other three are Tim Brent, Jamie McBain and Tim Gleason. Pretty good chunk of the team coming back right there, which is good for them, but maybe Pittsburgh can..." February 28

  • Staal brothers lead ’Canes to victory over Islanders

    New York Post "On the hockey checklists of brothers Eric and Jordan Staal — the siblings of Rangers defenseman Marc Staal — almost every major accomplishment one could ask for had been checked off. Be selected with the second pick in the draft: check. Hoist the Stanley Cup: check. Get a letter on the sweater:..." February 12

  • With Staal brothers in Carolina, family rivalry, bond to flourish

    SB Nation "Jordan Staal wasn't there to hear the crowd. He was a little busy. On June 22 at the NHL Draft in Pittsburgh, Staal was traded from the hometown Penguins to the Carolina Hurricanes, a reunion with his older brother Eric, the longtime captain of the Canes. But when the brothers found out about..." November 04

  • Canes begin contract talks with Jordan Staal

    Raleigh News & Observer "Canes general manager Jim Rutherford said Tuesday that contract talks have begun for newly acquired forward Jordan Staal, who was dealt to Carolina on Friday by the Pittsburgh Penguins. Staal, the brother of Canes captain Eric Staal, is represented by Paul Krepelka of the Orr Hockey..." June 27

  • Staal desired bigger role in offense

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "The timing of his trade Friday night to Carolina in the first round of 2012 NHL Entry Draft might not have been convenient for Jordan Staal, but the result certainly left him satisfied. "I don't think we knew when we were planning our wedding date that we knew that it was the draft day and..." June 24

  • Disrespect the Penguins? See ya

    Pittsburgh Tribune Review "It's rare in the sports world to trade a star in his prime such as Jordan Staal, rarer still for the general manager making that trade to hear approval. Immediately. On a super-sized, spotlighted stage in front of thousands of standing, screaming fans. That's exactly how it played out for..." June 23

  • Pens deal Staal to Carolina

    Pittsburgh Tribune Review "The Penguins won a Stanley Cup with Jordan Staal and may try to reclaim it with Zach Parise.

June 23

  • Staal rejects 10-year deal from Penguins

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "Center Jordan Staal, who has one year remaining on his contract, has rejected a 10-year deal proposed by the Penguins. Financial terms of the proposal are not known, and it is not clear when Staal turned it down. Paul Krepelka, who represents Staal, would say only that "Jordan is not..." June 22

  • Jordan Staal "Not Prepared" To Sign Extension with Penguins at this time

    PensBurgh "The Jordan Staal situation has gone nuclear today. A short while ago, TSN uber-sage Bob McKenzie tweeted that Staal's camp declined a 10 year contract proposal from the Penguins. The Pittsburgh media did some digging and found out that general manager Ray Shero was prepared to commit $6 million a..." June 21

  • Only Staal has been there all along

    Pittsburgh Tribune Review "Brooks Orpik, always blunt as a butt-end, was the one who had best summed up the scope of the Penguins' challenge earlier this week in Philadelphia: He called their play through three losses "terrible." Even joked that "maybe we're idiots or something" for thinking they might survive this Stanley..." April 21

  • Staal comes up big again

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "Jordan Staal is regarded as one of the top defensive centers in the NHL. His ability to shut down the opposing team's top scoring threats has earned him a spot among the game's most pesky checking line players. In this wildly entertaining Eastern Conference quarterfinal series between the..." April 21

  • Staal's quiet transformation

    Pittsburgh Tribune Review "Even when he nets a power-play goal, a short-handed goal and an even-strength assist, Jordan Staal is not the story. Can't be. Not with Evgeni Lemieux -- or is it Mario Malkin? -- roaming around. Malkin made Tampa Bay defenseman Brett Clark look like Dick Clark on a memorable third-period..." February 26

  • Staal likely to play today after monthlong absence

    Pittsburgh Tribune Review "Even with new stitches in his upper lip, Jordan Staal was feeling optimistic about his health and his season now that his month-long layoff has ended.

  • Forget Staal-Kennedy-Cooke reunion for now

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "Penguins coach Dan Bylsma has not divulged his plans for line combinations once center Jordan Staal returns, but one thing is clear: Staal, who could return as early as a home game Saturday afternoon against Winnipeg, will not be part of a reunion party with wingers Tyler Kennedy and Matt Cooke..." February 10

  • Staal family tradition anything but good one

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "This is becoming something of a family tradition for the Staals. And not an entirely pleasant one. Jordan Staal , a Penguins center, made his 2010-11 debut in the Winter Classic Jan. 1, 2011, at Heinz Field after missing 39 games because of a foot infection and broken hand. A year and a..." January 04

  • Williams replaces injured Staal in Penguins lineup

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "The Penguins have the best collection of centers in the NHL and one of the league's deepest defense corps. On paper, anyway. That has not, however, been the case for games very often over the past year or so. And they got more bad medical news, when it was determined that center Jordan..." December 11

  • Staal shifts Penguins offense into high gear

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "It always has seemed like just a matter of time until Jordan Staal of the Penguins wins a Selke Trophy as the NHL's top defensive forward. He's a key member of one of the league's elite penalty-killing units and routinely is matched against -- and neutralizes -- opposing teams' top..." November 19

  • Pens' Staal enjoys spike in goal production

    Pittsburgh Tribune Review "That Penguins center Jordan Staal ripped into his teammates following a sloppy first period against Colorado on Tuesday is no surprise. Leadership has always come naturally to him. Consistent scoring has always seemed more of a challenge for the 23-year-old. Until now, anyway. Staal, long..." November 17

  • Penguins' win streak ends at 5; Staal out

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "Overcoming a one-goal deficit to win a game is nothing special in the NHL. Teams do it pretty much every night of the season. Doing it twice on the same night is not exactly rare, but, when a club does it three times, that is noteworthy. And when a team is obliged to try to do it four times,..." October 30

  • Staal's two-way play hits new level

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "How do you measure Jordan Staal? By height, he's 6 feet 4. By his place in the Penguins lineup, he's a third-line center. Unless the team is experimenting with him as a second-line winger. Or unless one or both of the centers ahead of him are hurt as has been the case the past several..." October 27

  • Pens' Staal could become force this season

    Pittsburgh Tribune Review "The Penguins are dodging a bullet because one of hockey's great two-way players, Canucks center Ryan Kesler, is nursing a hip injury and won't be available for Thursday night's season opener. Center Jordan Staal, entering his sixth NHL season at age 23, might be poised to see his offensive..." October 06

  • Big third period lifts Pens past Blackhawks

    Pittsburgh Tribune Review "Jordan Staal scored twice, and Matt Cooke and Tyler Kennedy added tallies — all in the third period — to give the Penguins a 4-1 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks in a preseason game Thursday night at Consol Energy Center. The game was Cooke's first since he was assessed a 17-game suspension..." September 23

  • Staal powers Penguins to 4-1 win

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "Jordan Staal scored twice as the Penguins came back in the third period to beat the Chicago Blackhawks, 4-1, in a preseason game tonight at Consol Energy Center. The Penguins are 2-0 in the exhibition season. The game was scoreless until 10:32 of the second period, when Michael Frolik..." September 23

  • Penguins' Malkin, Staal score 2

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "OK, better save a spot for Evgeni Malkin on the Penguins opening-night roster. Might want to set aside one for Jordan Staal, too. Malkin scored two goals to lead the Gold squad to a 3-2 victory against Black in an intrasquad scrimmage Tuesday night at Mohegan Sun Arena, and Staal got both..." September 20

  • Pens need super Staal

    Pittsburgh Tribune Review "Forget about misery loving company. Jordan Staal just wanted to be left alone Saturday after Tampa Bay's 8-2 pounding of the Penguins, the greatest margin of defeat in club playoff history. Who can blame him? Staal is the Penguins' first-line center but hasn't scored a goal and has only two..." April 25

  • Penguins' Staal has stood tall in stars' absence

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "Meditation? Visualization exercises? Jordan Staal shook his head and offered a bemused smile. The Penguins' fifth-year center might be just 22, but he is too old school for that sort of thing. When he butts up against a challenge, he simply butts back. Case in point -- filling in for..." April 13

  • Core players rest up for playoffs

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "Jordan Staal spent the day in street clothes. So did Chris Kunitz. James Neal and Paul Martin, too. Marc-Andre Fleury got the afternoon off, as well. Didn't matter. With nothing except a few statistics and personal achievements at stake in the Penguins' regular-season finale -- a 5-2..." April 11

  • Nice night for Staal; still hope for Neal

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "It was nice to see Jordan Staal get a goal Tuesday night at Consol Energy Center, his first in eight games. It started the Penguins down the path to a 4-2 win against the New Jersey Devils that went a long way toward clinching at least fourth place in the Eastern Conference and home-ice advantage..." April 06

  • Jordan Staal's impact not reflected in his statistics

    Pittsburgh Tribune Review "Somebody not paying close attention to the Penguins -- one of those types that judges a forward only by goals and points -- a person like that probably wouldn't believe that center Jordan Staal has stepped up in the absences of Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin. Somebody -- one of those types --..." April 04

  • Staal, Penguins bounce back

    Pittsburgh Tribune Review "Jordan Staal takes extreme pride in his work, and he knew his showing against Montreal on Saturday wasn't acceptable. Only 24 hours later, he responded in typical fashion. Staal scored a goal, added an assist and played a significant role in another virtuoso penalty-killing effort Sunday, as..." March 14

  • Staal expected in lineup tonight, Martin questionable

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "Penguins center Jordan Staal is expected to play tonight against Washington at Consol Energy Center, coach Dan Bylsma said after the game-day skate. Staal got hit on the left side of his face by a shot during overtime of Sunday's 3-2 shootout loss at Chicago and left the game. He did not..." February 21

  • Staal's overtime goal leads Penguins past Kings, 2-1

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "Penguins coach Dan Bylsma picked up his 100th NHL win Thursday night, but he easily could have gotten confused and thought he was back in the American Hockey League. With a lineup studded with call--ups from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the AHL, the Penguins halted a two-game losing streak with a..." February 11

  • Penguins find silver lining with Crosby, Malkin out

    Pittsburgh Tribune Review "Something good did come out of January for the Penguins, who played most of the month without center Sidney Crosby (concussion) and the final weeks of it without center Evgeni Malkin (sinus infection). That "something" is center Jordan Staal, who made his season debut in the Winter Classic on..." February 04

  • NHL revokes Staal's suspension

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "The Penguins did not officially know that center Jordan Staal would be in their lineup Wednesday night against the New York Islanders until early afternoon, when the NHL decided not to uphold a one-game suspension. They did not expect Staal to be punished beyond the major penalty and match..." February 03
