Description: Hurricanes center Jordan Staal (broken right fibula) has a 3-4 month timetable for his return.
Insight: He's no Eric Staal, but fantasy owners will miss his 40-50 points a season.

Description: Hurricanes General Manager Ron Francis announced that center Jordan Staal suffered a broken bone in the lower part of his right left during Tuesday's preseason game against Buffalo according to NHL.com.
Insight: Staal was traveling back to Raleigh to undergo further tests. We do not yet know the extent of the injury. Regardless, this is terrible news.
 
9/23/2014 8:11:00 PM
Description: Hurricanes new coach Bill Peters is considering playing the Staal brothers on the same line according to the Raleigh News & Observer.
Insight: Peters also had Eric Staal playing alongside Jeff Skinner and second-year player Elias Lindholm, so obviously Peters is thinking of every possible combination. If the Staal brothers do play together, that will provide a huge boost for Jordan's fantasy value. In all likelihood, Eric will play with Skinner or his mates from last season, Jiri Tlusty and Alexander Semin.

Description: Carolina center Jordan Staal had two points (1 G, 1 A) Tuesday versus the Islanders.

1/6/2013 10:19:00 PM
Description: Chip Alexander from the Raleigh News & Observer reports that brothers Eric and Jordan Staal are unlikely to play on the same line this season.
Insight: As fun as it would be to see the two siblings on the ice at the same time, Jordan and Eric are both centers and would probably be better off playing separately. Eric has been with the Hurricanes since 2003 while Jordan had played in Pittsburgh for six seasons before joining Carolina this past summer.
