It's a family reunion in Raleigh, as Marc Staal is the newest member of the Carolina Hurricanes!

Jeff Skinner
Justin Faulk
Victor Rask

Marc Staal
Carl Hagelin
Rights to Mats Zuccarello
2013 NYR 4th

We're ecstatic to unite Marc with his brothers Eric and the recently-acquired Jordan, and we look forward to the three of them excelling together to help bring championship hockey back to North Carolina!

It does hurt to lose a player like Jeff Skinner, but we feel that the addition of Jordan meant a opportunity to focus on other areas we feel needed work. Marc not only comes in already as family, but he also brings with him a top-tier defensive style that will work wonders against our foes in the Southeast.

Carl Hagelin will step right in as a top-nine winger, having come off an impressive rookie season. And we will work hard to bring Mats Zuccarello back to North American ice, offering him an opening night roster spot should he choose to give NHL hockey another shot.

We wish Jeff, Victor and Justin all the best in New York.

RIP octopi and parabola.
