Jared John Staal (born August 21, 1990) is an ice hockey player who is currently playing for the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League. He is the younger brother of Eric Staal of the Carolina Hurricanes, Marc Staal of the New York Rangers, and Jordan Staal of the Pittsburgh Penguins. He is also the cousin of Jeff Heerema of the Nottingham Panthers.[1]

Playing careerEdit

Jared played 'AAA' midget in Thunder Bay and was drafted in the first round of the 2006 OHL Priority Selection Draft by the Sudbury Wolves (11th overall). Staal played the 2007–08 season with the Wolves.[2] He was selected by the Phoenix Coyotes in the 2nd round of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, 49th overall. He is the only Staal brother not to be taken in the first round of the NHL Entry Draft and the only one not to have been drafted by an Eastern Conference team. He is the only right shooter of all 4 brothers.

On April 3, 2009, Staal signed an amateur tryout contract with the San Antonio Rampage, the AHL affiliate of the Coyotes.[3] He appeared in five games for the Rampage in 2009, however he was sent back to the Sudbury Wolves for the remainder of the season.[4]

On May 13, 2010, the Carolina Hurricanes acquired his rights from the Phoenix Coyotes in exchange for a fifth-round draft pick. On May 14, 2010 the Hurricanes signed him to a 3 year entry level contract.[5][6] To start the 2010–11 season, Jared was assigned to the Hurricanes AHL affiliate, the Charlotte Checkers of the AHL. Struggling to gain ice time after 12 games, on November 19, 2010, Jared was re-assigned to ECHL affiliate, the Florida Everblades,[7] but was later recalled.[8]
