Jordan Staal is adjusting to playing on the Hurricanes without older brother Eric on the roster.

"I miss having him here," Staal said. "It's definitely different not having him around. It is what is. Obviously it has been a ... while now, knowing he wouldn't come back. Its definitely different." Jordan could be the next captain of Carolina, but the team isn't feeling any urgency to name a new one right now.
Sep 9 - 2:03 PM

Jordan Staal could be the next captain of the Carolina Hurricanes.

The Hurricanes haven't had a captain since Feb. 28 following the trade of Jordan's brother, Eric. Justin Faulk is considered to be another strong contender to wear the "C," but Staal has more experience in the league and a Stanley Cup ring. He was also a key contributor last season, especially during the second half. The Hurricanes won't rush the decision and it's possible that they could enter the year with multiple assistants.

Hurricanes GM Ron Francis said he had a positive meeting with Jordan Staal.

"He’s excited about the direction we’re going in," Francis said. The Hurricanes traded Staal's older brother, Eric Staal, during the 2015-16 campaign and are unlikely to pursue Eric as an unrestricted free agent. The fact that Eric Staal was part of the Hurricanes' organization was believed to be a big reason Jordan Staal was happy to get traded to Carolina and sign a 10-year, $60 million deal back in the summer of 2012. Since Eric's departure, there have been questions raised above the possibility that Jordan would be moved too and while that might happen, Francis' statement seems to make that less likely.
Jun 30 - 8:47 AM

There may be a possibility that Jordan Staal will not play in Carolina next season.

This is only speculation but Staal inked a deal with the Hurricanes before the 2012-13 season when his brother Eric was on the team. Eric is now an unrestricted free agent and you have to think that the Hurricanes will not bring him back. Staal had 20 goals and 48 points this season, his best to date as a Hurricane. Stay tuned.
Jun 5 - 7:43 AM

Jordan Staal capped off the best season of his career with Carolina on a high note.
